Make-up Work Policy for Absences Distance Learning (DL) or Brick & Mortar (B&M)
Every day teachers work to fill every minute of your student’s day with rich, meaningful learning opportunities. Our learning in the classroom is done in community with pictures, reading, labs, activities, demonstrations, manipulatives, partner work, bell work/warm up activities, exit tickets, observations, drills, recitations and discussions. When a student is absent or late, we can give your student worksheets, a copy of the notes, and schedule another time for a test/quiz, but these things miss the heart and soul of what we do each day in the classroom. Because of the nature of each learning experience, it is nearly impossible to recreate the lesson/activities that are graded each day.
Our DL students also participate in all kinds of activities that have been “remotified” to be done in the virtual environment and are very conducive for students who have been sick to get caught up. Even then, daily attendance is vitally important to any student's success in either the B & M or DL classroom.
When a student is absent for illness, they have one calendar day for each day missed to complete any work or assignment that was missed. B & M students are responsible to take home the absent work left for them on their desk or request the packet from their teacher. DL students are responsible for logging into their GC for the days they missed, participating in the online learning and connecting with their teachers if they have any questions. All tests/quizzes that were missed should be made up within one week of the absence unless other arrangements are made with the teacher. The late policy will take effect as soon as students have reached the number of “make-up days” allotted. Students in grades 4-6 should work to arrange with their teachers, time outside of class or during tutoring to receive help for material they have missed and do not understand or make up tests.
HW/classwork/make-up work late policy:
- 10% off if not turned in the AM the day it is due
- 50% off if turned in 24 hrs late
- 75% off if turned in 48 hrs late
- 0% after 48 hrs late
Absences that allow for a grace period of time (as listed above) to get make up work done must be recorded with the school’s registrar by emailing her at Absences that are unexcused may result in zeros for many class activities that cannot be recreated. Please see the handbook for further information.or calling the attendance line.
