Homework is the responsibility of the student and, therefore, should be turned in on the day it is due. Students are responsible for handing in assignments that are neat, accurate, and on time. Partial credit will be given for any late work received after the due date. All students have received a student planner and will be given time, at the day’s end, to write down their homework.
If your child is absent, he/she will need to check to my website for the assignment(s).
If your child is absent, he/she will be given 2 extra days to complete assignments. In case of a prolonged absence, you or your child may conference with me concerning the time needed to finish any make-up work.
