- There will be a few homework assignments that require Internet access. For those students who do not have Internet access at home, I allow extended time so that the student may come in during lunch, after school or during a study hall to complete it.
Grades and Make-up Work
Grades will be posted on the due date. If your assignment is missing, the letter "m" will be entered into the grade book temporarily until the assignment is completed and turned in. Students can make up work during study halls, lunches or after school. All work assigned must be completed by the end of the quarter. Homework assignments are due on the the date they are given. Please note, the letter "m" will enter a 0 into the grade book until the grade is entered when the work is turned in.
