Absent and Late Work Policy

Late Work and Absence Policy
Science and English Language Arts

Please read carefully...

Late Work Policy
Students are expected to turn each assignment in on time. Work will earn full credit on or before its due date.

Late Work and Unexcused Absences
One day late assignments will be dropped by one letter grade. Assignments that are two days up to one week late will receive half credit. After one week, late assignments will not be accepted and zero credit will be given.

Late Work from Excused Absences
When work is late due to an excused absence, THERE WILL BE NO PENALTY FOR TWO CONSECUTIVE SCHOOL DAYS. After those two days, the policy connected to Late Work from Unexcused Absences applies.

Missed Tests from Excused Absences
Tests missed due to excused absences must be made up within one week after the student’s return from an absence. Please contact Mrs. Dowling A.S.A.P. to schedule a time to take the missed test. IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY to schedule make-ups for missed tests. Failure to schedule a make-up test within the one week period will result in a zero for that test.

Any questions please contact Mrs. Dowling
