Absence/Make-Up Policies for 2012-2013 - ALL CLASSES
When a student is absent it is his/her repsonsibility to make up any notes immediately and to check my teacher page at www.cohs.com to find out about any quizzes, tests, homework, open book tests, labs, or lab reports EVERY day he/she is absent. When work is missed it will be recorded as a zero on Grade Connect until make-up. If work is not made up in what I determine to be a reasonable amount of time (in most cases immediately upon return to school) then the zero will be made permanent for that assignment.
Students MUST report to room 336 either before or during homeroom on the FIRST day of their return to school to make up any missed quizzes or tests and/or to turn in and missed assignments. When a student reports for absence make-up he/she MUST bring his/her science text, science notebook, science folder, and any homework that was due while he/she was absent. There is NO EXCUSE for failing to meet this responsibility of reporting for absence make-up or of having the required materials for absence make-up..
Fear of being late to homeroom in NOT an excuse for failing to meet these make-up obligations. I can write the student a pass. It is best for the student to report directly to me even if this will make the student late for homeroom because I can speak with his/her homeroom teacher and/or the attendance office to make sure that the student does NOT get in any trouble for reporting to me.
It is the STUDENT'S responsibility to know what he/she missed during his/her absence. He/she should have checked the teacher page to find this information EVERY day he/she was absent. Failure to do so will result in a zero for any missed work and loss of homework points.
Mrs. O'Hara is available for absence make-up EVERY day in room 336 starting at 7:15 am.
Missed work CANNOT be made up during class time. Absence is NOT an excuse for being unprepared. Computer failure or printer failure is NOT an excuse for being unprepared.
If a test is missed during an absence then the student will have to take an essay test as make up.
