    Late Work
    Late work is 10 points off per day late.

    Make-up Work
    Make-up work is accepted ONLY for excused absences. When absent, you must speak to me after class has started or e-mail me. Missed assignments will be on your class Schoology page. You will have as many days as you are absent to make up work.

    Academic Dishonesty
    Academic dishonesty will NOT be tolerated under any circumstances. Cheating, copying, or plagiarism of any form will result in the following consequences:
    1. failure of the assignment
    2. disciplinary referral
    3. parent contact



    I will be using Remindthis year as a means to communicate with students.
