Procedures & Guidelines

What to do if your scholar is absent or plans to be absent:

1. If your scholar is absent or plans to be absent,  here are a few things they can do to minimize the amount of time they will need to meet with their teachers after school.

2. Check the My week at a Glance for assignments they missed in 6th Grade. Check the Assignment Calendar on the 7/8 Grade webpage for assignments missed at that level.  

3. Students may be directed  to the Schoology website  to find videos or assignments they have missed.  (CopyRight Law may prohibit us from linking assignment to digital  pages.) 

4. Scholars should visit the “Absent” folders located in the classrooms.  There will be a form that has been filled out by a classmate and will list what the scholar missed and may have the missing work attached. 

5. Scholars are welcome to ask other classmates to explain an assignment they have missed.

6. Scholars are encouraged to email their teachers with any questions they have about assignments they have missed. However, if scholars still have questions, they will need to meet with a teacher after school.
