    Please note the new guidelines for late homework and reassessments for grades 6-12: 

    GRADES 6-12 HOMEWORK, CLASSWORK, AND RETAKE POLICIES UPDATED:

    * Late work only applies to homework. 

    * Classwork is NOT a part of this policy and thus it cannot be made up for credit, with the exception of a student that is absent that day.

    * If a student is absent, they will have the same number of days that they were absent to make up classwork missed.

    * Projects that are for an assessment grade are considered the same as assessments. As a result, a student must turn in any project on the due date (and make a conscious effort) or they will not be allowed to re-assess the project. 

    * The deadline to turn in late homework for 100% credit is every Monday for homework which was due the previous week. This includes the Monday after the grading period ends if there were homework assignments that last week.

    * The deadline to re-assess Projects/Assessments remains one week before the grading period ends.

    * The deadline for students to re-assess projects/assessments taken during the last week of the grading period has been changed to the Tuesday following the last day of the grading period.
