Make-Up Policy: Students have the same number of days absence from school (excused absences only) in which to make up the work. For example, if a student has missed three consecutive excused days of school, he/she would have three school days in which to make up the work missed. It is the student’s responsibility to see his/her teacher after school following an absence in order to get the work missed.
