Students who violate the rules will receive consequences in line with building policies and procedures.

    Absences

    If students are absent from class, it is their responsibility to check with Ms. Johnson about make-up work. A good place to check would be Google classroom. If the daily work is not posted, students may email Ms. Johnson about what has been done on missed days. 

    If students are absent because of quarantine or Covid 19, please contact Ms. Johnson. A plan will be made to make up assignments and tests.

    Homework

    Homework assignments will be given on a regular basis. Students are expected to complete the work on time. Refer to the student handbook for the building make-up policy for assignments and tests.

The student will have one week (7 days) from the date due to turn in the asisgnment for 50% of the overall earned score. After one week, no credit (a zero) will be given to the missing assignment or major project.
