Pre-arranged Absences and Work
The sponsor will provide documentation for any pre-arranged absence. The pre-arranged absence form must be completed and signed by the student's teachers and sponsor. It is the student's responsibility to get assignments prior to departure and to turn in the completed work upon return. It is advantageous to notify the school as soon as possible.
For an excused absence, the student is responsible for obtaining and completing make-up work. Students are expected to complete missed assignments in a timely manner upon return to school. Work will be completed in the same amount of days as student is absent.
Homework is one means of developing the necessary skills of independent study and learning for present and future use. Homework promotes organizational skills and a sense of responsibility.

Teachers may assign homework as determined necessary to enhance student learning that is taking place in the classroom. Each child works at his/her own pace, so the amount of time needed to complete specific assignments may vary.
