Homework, Textbooks and Grades
Homework is an essential element to success in school and should be completed on time. Students should have a "study buddy or homework buddy" to call when absent for more than one to three days. It is the student's responsibility to request homework and turn in late homework.
Requesting Homework When You are Absent
Parents may only request homework if a student is absent for more than three days. Contact the Counseling Office to request homework. Please allow the office 24 hours to collect your child's homework. Requested homework must be picked up in the Counseling Office. Homework cannot be faxed.
Note many teachers post homework on the website - visit Teacher Pages.
Textbooks should be covered at all times. TEXTBOOK LIST
