Students are responsible for collecting any missing work, for the days they missed. They will be given the number of days they missed to turn in the assignments. Late work will only be accepted for homework assignments. Classwork is NOT considered homework therefore CANNOT be turned in late . Per the district, students have up to three school days to turn in homework assignments late with a grade deduction for each day of 15 points after three days the grade is a zero. REDOS will only be allowed for summative assessments NOT formative assessments. Students have 5 days to redo any summative grades in class.
If a student is a minute or more late they are considered tardy.
1st – warning
2nd – teacher detention
3rd – Office referral
My tutoring time will be every morning. I also do afternoons as needed.
