Teachers will assign make-up work after an absence. The general rule of thumb is that the child will be given two days to make up the work for each absence. If the child is absent for more than a week, the teacher will make special arrangements to plan manageable make-up assignments. Parents who wish to pick up make-up work at school should call the office before 12:00 noon. Please understand that you will be picking up assignments that have been missed, not what will be missed. Due to the hands on and collaborative nature of much of our instruction, not all work missed can be made up out of school.
