     Makeup Assignments

     Students that are absent from school are responsible for all work and information missed in each class.  In the case of absences for more than 3 days, assignments may be requested through the teacher.  Assignments for absences of shorter duration will require students to contact teachers by email or classmates by telephone.  They may also request work from the individual teachers upon returning to school. The missing assignments are due within 5 days of the student returning to school.
