Make-ups



If you are absent the day an assignment is due, it must be turned in the day you return. If
you are out for 1 class, you’ll have 1 class to make up that day’s HW. If you are out 2 or
more classes, contact me as soon as possible to develop a make-up schedule.
If you miss a quiz or test, you must make arrangements to make-it up with Mrs. Kennedy
within two days. Failure to do so will result in a zero. If you miss the Review Day, you
are still required to take the quiz/test on time. So, please be prepared.
It is your responsibility to get the work you missed and make arrangements for quiz, Mrs.
Kennedy will not remind you!
Extra Help
