A clearly defined and consistently enforced missed test and/or assignment policy will be followed in order to help students prepare for academic success in high school and college.

Hey, I was absent yesterday so I dont have to take the test today.
Assignments and quizzes or tests that were announced prior to the students absence should be made up the day the student returns to class.
Assignments turned in late will have points deducted from the grade.
Each time a student fails to turn in an assignment they will receive a strike To be regarded on time, work must be completed by the beginning of the period on the day it is due.

Computer and printer problems DO NOT constitute legitimate reasons for an extension.

Include your name and the assignment in the subject line of the email as well as an attachment.
Experts say that if we repeat an action every day for just 21 days, it is likely to become automatic. So, for the next 21 days, act to obtain the habits of responsible students. Soon you will find that you will be doing them without even thinking.
