Independent Work (Homework) and Class Work 

a) First semester, independent work turned in up to one week after the due date will be accepted and graded with a penalty for each day late (unless you had an excused absence or have an accommodation which allows you extra time on assignments). Independent work turned in after one week from the due date will not be accepted for credit.

6)   Retake quizzes and tests that you have scores less than 76, but it must be done within a week of getting the quiz or test back. Failed quizzes/tests may only be made up to a 75. During the last week of a quarter retakes will not be granted.

7)   When you are absent, go to PowerSchool to see the assignment that is due for the next class.  You may also email me for assignments and any necessary worksheets because I can email them or get them ready for a pick up in the homework bin across from the main office.  Make sure to email me by 3pm because I do not check school email at home on a regular basis.
