Students are expected to make up work missed while they were absent. They will be given full credit for work done that satisfies the conditions of the district policy for make-up work. Immediately upon returning to school, the student must contact teachers concerning arrangements for making up work. A zero will be given for work that has been required by the teacher and has not met guidelines for make-up work. After the student has been absent for three days, the parent/guardian may request make-up work by calling the Assistant Principal's office at 281-641-4432 (before 9 a.m.).
When an absence occurs, it is the student’s responsibility to inquire about, complete, and return assignments. Students should expect to do more paperwork than those who were in attendance because it is necessary to make up for classroom experiences missed. The following is offered as a timeline for make-up work.
1 day absence day following return to school
2 day absence 2 days after return to school
3 day absence 3 days after return to school
4 day absence 4 days after return to school
5 day absence 5 days after return to school
Students absent more than five (5) days must make arrangements with their teachers for making up the work missed within one week (5 school days) after their return to school. Late work guidelines also apply to make-up work.
When in-school suspension or discipline program assignments have been given a predetermined date, no extra days are given for make-up work. If students are absent on a predetermined due date, the material is due the day the student returns to school.
