Excused Absences Make Up Policy

Make-Up for Excused Absences

  • If a Lower School student has an excused absence of one or more days, his/her parent may come to pick up the work missed along with any school books necessary no earlier than 1pm on the day the student is absent. Otherwise, this process will be followed:
    • The classroom teacher will complete a “Make-Up Homework” form for the student to take home.
    • The teacher will collect and provide all missed assignments.
    • A parent or guardian must initial the form after the student completes each assignment.
    • Students are given 2 days for every day missed to complete missed assignments.
    • Completing work at recess or lunch is also an option, if the teacher feels it is necessary to “catch-up.”
  • If a Middle/Upper School student has an excused absence of one or more days, his/her parent may email the separate teachers for the missed assignments. Otherwise, this process will be followed:
    • Teachers will collect homework and all related materials for the student.
    • Materials may either be emailed or picked up directly from the office.
    • Students need to obtain notes from a classmate (students may use the office copy machine only if a teacher is present).
    • If a test is missed, students must arrange a time with the teacher to take the test. Tests must be taken within the allotted time.
    • Students are given two days for every day missed to complete missed assignments and tests. Any assignment that has not been completed within 3 class periods of the allotted time becomes incomplete.
  • After missing two days, a family member needs to come to the school and gather necessary assignments to be completed at home.
