What is the make-up policy after a student is absent?

Posted by:

Students who have excused absences must make-up their work within 3 days upon return from an absence. It is the student’s responsibility to get with his/her teachers to determine what work needs to be made-up. Tests may be made-up during extended homeroom, P.E., or another time as designated by the teacher. If your child is absent, he/she is still responsible for all missed work, so your assistance in reminding your student of the 3- day make-up requirement is appreciated. Please note that no make-up work is allowed for unexcused absences.

This code is used for an exemption of an assignment. 


This code is used when a student has an unexcused absence on the day the assignment was given. No make-up work is allowed. A ‘UN’ is calculated as a zero (0) in the student’s overall average.

Zero (0)

A zero (0) in the gradebook is used only if a student earns a zero on an assignment or if the student did not submit the required make-up work on excused absence days.
