Absent and Late Work
Any absence from class, you must complete make-up work to receive daily credit. It is your responsibility to
pick up an assignment after being absent. Example, if you miss on Monday it is to be turned in on Wednesday.
So, 2 days after you are absent. If you miss 2 or more consecutive days, the 1st assignment is due in a week. So
if you miss Monday and Tuesday the assignments are due next Monday and Tuesday. Any late work will be
accepted but the highest grade you can get is a 60% so make sure you turn your assignments on time.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the school at (816) 675-2217. My plan time is 2nd hour from
I’m looking forward to a great school year.
