    Make up work

     For the general school population, two (2) school days for each day of excused absences will be allowed for the completion of make-up work.  It is the student’s responsibility to request and complete all test and assignments within the allotted time.  Make-up work for planned absences is due upon the student’s return to class.  Parents or guardians of any student who is absent due to hospitalization or extended illness should inform the attendance office and contact the student’s counselor.  A 48 hour notice is required to obtain make-up work.  Students who are absent unexcused from a final exam should make up the final exam. 

     For example, if you are absent on Monday, you should request your missed work upon your return on Tuesday, and return it to me at the beginning of class on Thursday.

     Any work received after the two (2) day allotment will receive late credit*, outlined below:

    1 day - 1 week late = 50% off 

    2 weeks late = 60% off (or 40% of the grade earned)

                    3 + weeks late = 70% off  (or 30% of the grade earned)

     *Percentages are taken off the points EARNED, not off the assignments’ total points. 

     Unexcused absences and attendance probation absences will receive late credit, beginning with the 50% credit.
