As per the Handbook, page 11, when absent, homework will be given out when the student returns. If a student is too sick to come to school, they are not to come in to the school in the afternoon and pick-up assignments. If absent due to illness, students are not to attend after school activities. Students will have time to make-up work upon return. Much of the homework is a follow-up to classroom instruction. Students can always work on long-term assignments and weekly assignments (spelling) while home.
