HOMEWORK POLICY

Grades will be inputted weekly. Please check grades regularly and feel free to ask me any questions that you might have about a particular grade. If in the grade book, you see a “M”, this stands for missing and means I have not received this assignment. A “0” represents the grade: whether it was incomplete, plagiarized, etc.

 

If you are absent, you are responsible for completing your make-up work (one day for make-up for each day absent).

 

If you know you are going to be absent beforehand, you should ask me for your make-up work before the absence.

 

This can be done before or after school or via e-mail.
