"MAKE-UP WORK: Students are expected to make up all missed work regardless of the reason(s) for absence and are responsible for gathering missed assignments. Students and parents must recognize that failure to complete assigned make-up work will result in lower grade averages. Upon returning to school, a pupil shall bring a signed note to the office from the parent or doctor giving the date(s) of and reason for the absence. Students should follow designated classroom procedures for collecting assignments and make-up work must be completed in a time frame equal to the number of days missed. Parents should make arrangements through the principal’s office when extended absences are necessary or extenuating circumstances exist. If a pupil or parent/guardian knows in advance that an absence will occur, arrangements to receive make-up work should be made in advance whenever possible."
