There will be at least 3 major assessments/grades and at least 9 other grades (daily grades) during each grading period.
Students are permitted to make up work missed for both excused and unexcused absences.
Schoolwork missed due to short-term absences, 3 days or less, may be made up after the student is well and returns to school. Failure to complete work in the scheduled time will result in work being subject to the late work policy. It is suggested that a student be absent 3 days before requesting make-up work.
Upon return to school, a student will be responsible for obtaining any required missed instruction and completing the make-up work inclusive of assessments in a satisfactory manner and within the time specified by the teacher. Generally, one day for each day of absence is allowed.
