Dear Parents,

Team 2 (grades 3-5) is committed to providing the best and most fair education for your child. In an effort to do that, each group teacher follows the same grading policy for Reading, Math, and Spelling. We have provided our policy below so you know what our expectations of your children are. Also included is our policies for absent and late work and codes you will see when you check your child's grades.

We hope this information will assist you in helping your children be prepared for class and achieve their best in school.

Thank you for all your support!

ABSENCES

Excused: For every day a student is absent, one day will be allowed to make up work, with a cap of 3 days.

Examples: 1 day missed, 1 day to make up.

Missed school Monday returned Tuesday, work due Wednesday.

3 days missed, 3 days to make up work.

Missed school Monday returned Thursday,work due following Tuesday.

5 days missed, 3 days to make up work.

Missed one week of school (M-F), work due Thursday.

Unexcused: Work should be collected before absences and is due upon return.

Late work: After the original due date, learning plans will be marked with a “Missing Work” stamp and students will be given 1 extra day to turn in work with a cap on their grades of 85%. If work is turned in more than 1 day late, students will receive a 0 on their assignment.

Bonus Points- Students that do corrections will receive their extra points in the “Bonus Point” category. That way you can see what they actually made on the assignment and the extra points earned.

Penalty Points- When an assignment is late the points lost will be displayed in the “Penalty Points” category and will be followed with a brief explanation of why those points were lost.

Be advised-some assignments will appear as missing when the grade hasnt been entered. If the assignment has a score of 0 points earned this assignment may not apply to your child.

ALL ABSENCES AFFECT YOUR CHILDS ACADEMIC GROWTH. Each day they will be taught several concepts, some are through lectures, and missing one day of school can make it very difficult for your child to stay on task. Please take a look at our school calendar, located on LPA’s homepage, for dates to consider when taking a trip during school time.
