Missed Work Overview
The following are school-wide expectations for missed work:
- If the absence is approved in advance and/or if the work is assigned by the teacher in advance, all make-up work, including tests assigned for the day of return, is due upon the student's return to school. Teachersshould use discretion and may make exceptions in the case of students whose excused absences were not planned in advance, were beyond the student' control, and the nature of which would not support make-upwork the day of return.
- If the make-up work has not been assigned in advance, for absences of one (1) to three (3) days, thestudent will have one day for each day absent. For absences exceeding three (3) days, the student mayhave two (2) days for each day absent to make up work. Special consideration will be given in the case ofextended absences due to injury or chronic illness.
