Make-Ups

Minimize

If a student is absent, it is his/her responsibility to get missed work.  A long term project/assignment for a major grade should be turned in the calendar day a student returns to school. If the school determines a student’s absence is unexcused due to truancy, no credit will be given for an assignment. If the student’s absence is excused for a school activity for which he has advance notice, he should be prepared for class with completed assignments when he returns. Extracurricular activities are not excuses for putting off making up work or assignments.
