  • If work is turned in within 24 hours of the original due date, the maximum credit received will be lowered by one letter grade.
  • After 48 hours (2 days) of the original due date, the maximum credit received will be lowered by a second letter grade.
  • Assignments will receive no more than 50% credit if turned in after 72 hours (3 days).  All assignments must be turned in before the completion of the unit/chapter in order to receive 50% credit.  All required work must be turned in or privileges will be lost (See Honor Level System).

Middle School Absent Work Guide

  • At the end of each school day Middle School teachers will deliver missing work to the absent student’s homeroom teacher.  The work will remain with the homeroom teacher until the student returns to school.
  • Work assigned prior to and due on the day of a one-day absence must be turned in on the first returning day in order to earn full credit.  Previously scheduled exams taken on a day of absence must be taken on the first returning day.
  • Students will be given the same number of days to complete and turn in work as the number of days missed due to illness.
  • When an absence is planned (vacation, etc), work assigned or given out before the absence must be completed and turned in on the first returning day in order to receive full credit.  Work that is not assigned or given out before a planned absence must be completed in a timely manner.  Each individual teacher must be consulted.  Exams missed due to planned absences must be made up in a timely manner.  Each individual teacher must be consulted.  Please remember that classroom time can never really be made up and we encourage families to try and plan vacations around the school calendar.
