LATE WORK, for any reason other than an excused absence from school, WILL NOT BE
ACCEPTED; therefore, it is important that students complete their work and turn it in on time.
If you miss class and have an excuse you need to meet with me about getting your make-up work. I will not
come to you and give you the assignment, you need to come to me. I have too many things to do to track
you down.
** If you fail to put your name on your assignment it will get filed with all the other outgoing garbage.
