Makeup Work

Students may come and see me during their lunch/guide time to make up

any missed work. If a student is absent from school due to illness or family obligations, he/she will receive the work that was missed upon his/her return to school.  Extra time needed for making up work will be discussed on an individual basis.  If a student is absent on a Quiz day, then that student is expected to take the quiz upon his or her return. Once the cycle has ended, the student will have (2) days to complete a quiz, review questions from the textbook, reflection/review questions and/or an in-class project due to an absence(s) on the last day(s) of the cycle. Again, the Health cycles are short in duration so there is a time-sensitive issue here.
