As per our conversation during Parents Night dated August 6, 2010, here are some of the points discussed:
Tests will be notice with almost one week in advance.
Quizzes will be notice with 4 days in advance, they will cover what we discuss during that week.
They will be posted on the class website in case your child forgets what has to be done or did not copy the correct instructions. Homework missed due to absence will usually be due the following day after returning to school. ALWAYS talk to your teacher if due to the number of days missed, workload, and the reason for the absence, the due date can soemtimes be negotiable.
