According to school policy (pg.13)…
*You have the same number of days absent- including tests*If absent on the day of a long term assignment, students must submit it the first dayback to class* If you are absent on the day of a test - make ups are done outside of class time and
will be a different version from the rest of the class4
(not all daily assignments will be checked)
The expectation is that assignments are complete and ready on day due.*Late work - One day late = no more than 75% of the total valueTwo – five days late = no more than 50% total valueMore than five days late = 0%* Please, do not finish homework in the minutes before class begins, I will not accept it
