Students absent for extended illness/flu will be given make-up work upon return to the classroom. Make-up due dates will be discussed with students upon return. Sufficient time will be given for make-up work. If you are going to be absent for an extended period, please e-mail me and let me know!" Agendas can be accessed through this web page. When possible, parents are encouraged to request work be sent to guidance for pick-up (or accessed via the webpage) so the students will not be as far behind when they return to school.
