Making up work
*All work missed for the day of your absence will need to be made up within 6 days of returning to school with the exception of labs. Labs need to be made up within 14 days of returning to school. It is your responsibility to check the notebook for your work and bell ringer or ask a classmate. Any quizzes or tests can be made up during I.L., before school, and after school. If you are absent on a day we had lab, you can make up the lab at home, fill out the make up lab assignment sheet and bring a sample of your product to me. Or you can do alternative assignment, which is usually a page report on the topic of the lab. If 6 days go by and you have not made up the missing work, you will receive a “zero” for the assignment(s).
