The number one thing you can do to be successful is to do the work to the best of your ability, and turn it in! This not only allows me to see where you are, and help you get to where you ought to be, but it also is a requisite skill for being successful not only in an academic sense, but also in life! To that end, late work is not accepted. If I see that you seem to be struggling with completing and turning in your work on a regular basis, I will be happy to meet with you to see how I can help you to get back on track.
If you are absent the day a major project or essay is due, you must turn in the project or essay the day you return. Make up tests or quizzes not completed with a calendar week of the student's return to class will receive a score of zero, so please be sure to make arrangements with me as soon as possible!
Departmental make-ups are on Thursdays after school. Remember, it is your responsibility to arrange for a makeup, so be sure to get with me as soon as possible. In cases of an extended absence, special arrangements can be made - please be sure to contact me either in person or via email so we can work these out.
