 # Daily Agenda

Classwork Information:

Students will be graded on their preparation, participation, completion, and corrections each day.  Daily classwork includes individual assignments, partner assignments, and group work.

Absent Students:

It is each student's responsibility to:

1. Check with a classmate, the website, or the board in class for missed classwork and homework assignments.
2. Copy a classmate’s notes taken in class on the day(s) the student was absent.
3. Speak with Mrs. Jeppesen about any other possible assignments or handouts from the missed days, or if they have any questions.
4. Turn in any assignments that were due on the day(s) the student missed.
5. Turn in make-up work within two school days from the day the student returned to school.

If students do not fulfill their responsibilities in obtaining and completing their make-up work in a timely manner, the assignments will be entered as 0% in the gradebook.

If a student will be absent for a trip, extended illness, etc., families are encouraged to contact the front office for a Homework  Request.  All of the students teachers will provide a packet of work that can be picked up by the family from the office and the work can be completed while the student is absent.  Students and their families can also contact a classmate, visit the website, or contact Mrs. Jeppesen while the student is absent to obtain information on make-up work.
