Homework Website – www2.olentangy.k12.oh.us/~robert_bec kley When a student is absent, he/she will be given the same number of days that were missed to turn in missing work. It is the student’s responsibility to find out the assignments missed during an absence. Checking with his/her teachers and the website and homework hotline is a great way to do this. We expect students to put forth their best effort on their homework assignments by completing them neatly and turning them in on time.
