    - If the student is absent for any reason, they should see the teacher in order to obtain any make-up work.

    - Make-Up work must be completed within 3 days of the student’s return.

    - I will contact parents of students with a grade of D/F during the middle of the 9 weeks and the end of the 9 weeks. Please keep a check on your students grade and reach out to me should there be a concern at any other time.

    - Students will not be allowed to turn in late assignments unless the parent has contacted me.
