All inquiries, arrangements, and written confirmation of arrangements for make-up work after absences are the student’s responsibility and not their teacher.Should the student fail to inquire about and arrange for make-up work, zeros will be assigned for all work missed.

Each teacher will establish due dates for major/ long term projects and these due dates will not be altered for excused or unexcused absences.Students under suspension will be provided make-up work or tests according to the county guidelines. At the conclusion of each term, a student has 14 calendar days to complete any make-up work required for either a change in grade or the removal of an incomplete.
