LATE WORK POLICY
It is the policy of Hitch School to not accept late work. In order to teach students responsibility, punctuality and to better prepare them for their future endeavors, all classwork and homework assignments must be submitted to the teacher on the day and time specified.
Assignments not submitted on the day and time specified will be recorded as a zero grade in the teacher's grade book. An individual teacher may give consideration to submitted late work when calculating quarterly grades, if the student's overall effort throughout
the ten-week period warrants such consideration. This policy applies to both short and long term assignments.
Absent students who return to school with a written note, dated and signed by a parent/legal guardian will be given one day for each day of absence to complete missed classwork and homework assignments. If a student is absent in excess of 5 school days, a parent/teacher conference is recommended in order to work out an appropriate schedule for completion of missing assignments. Parents are encouraged to pick up assignments from the school office on a daily basis. The request for work to be sent to the office must be made by 10:00 a.m., and will be ready by dismissal at 3:00.
The above consideration will only be made for students with excused absences (illness, death in the immediate family, family emergencies threatening the welfare of the child, and religious holidays.) No consideration will be given to students because of unexcused absences. Students who take vacation on scheduled school days are considered truant. Teachers are not required to provide assignments to students anticipating unexcused absences. Missed assignments from truant students will be recorded as grades of zero in the teacher's grade book and averaged with other recorded grades in determining a student's quarterly report card grade. However, if students/parents take the initiative to find out missing assignments from their classmate or classmates' parents, make-up work will be accepted and credited if submitted on the first day the student returns to school following the absence.
