Absence / Make up work Procedure: Upon returning to school following an absence, it is the student’s responsibility to make up any missed work.

If a student is absent for a test we will arrange a time to make it up, either during my office hours or during the student’s lunch period.

Chromebooks: Students are expected to bring their charged Chromebooks to class each day. We WILL use them frequently.
