  • Work due the day you were absent. This is due the day you return.

  • Work assigned the day(s) you were absent. You have the responsibility of checking the whiteboard or assignment binder when you return to see what work you have missed. You may also go on If handouts were assigned, they may be found in the handout file. Then check with the teacher for your due date. The rule is, for a one-day absence you have one class period to make up the assignment. For a two-day absence you have two periods, and so on.

  • A study buddy will come in handy to help make up missed work or if there are questions about homework or classwork.

Missed tests and quizzes

  • Said student is equally responsible for all work due during his her absence.

  • Work may be brought to the classroom or placed in Mrs. Fairley’s faculty box.

  • Students should realize that if you trust a “friend” with your assignment, that you are still ultimately responsible for its arrival.

  • Students need to be seated when the bell rings or they are considered tardy.

  • Repeated unexcused tardy will result in lunch detention, parent contact, and lowered citizenship.

Portfolio auditions

  • Student portfolio will contain all tests and quizzes given during that grading period.

  • All test and quizzes must be corrected on a separate sheet of paper.

  • The answers must incorporate the question.

  • The test or quiz must then be signed by the parent and returned to the teacher for credit.
