Homework builds responsibility, self-discipline, and good time management skills. Students are expected to turn in their homework on time. For each late/missing assignment, students will receive a Late Work Slip that needs to be signed by a parent/guardian and returned the following day with the completed assignment. Please refer to the Homework Policy in my course syllabus for specific information in regard to late and absent work.
Check my classroom web page. After two or more days, you may request your student’s homework from the counseling office What should I do when my child is absent? Students are allowed one day per each day absence to complete and turn in assignment Students are responsible for checking the calendar and absence folder for any work they missed once they return to school Absence (Illness) Students/parents must request homework five days prior to absence. Make-up work is due the first day of return See course syllabus for more details regarding pre-planned absences Absence (pre-planned)
