If you have requested work for your child (after 2 days of absence), the work will be available in the Main Office until 4pm. Please feel free to call ahead to see if there are any physical materials as many teachers put things directly on Teams.
If you need to make alternate arrangements for pick-up, please call the office at 267-1900.
We have seen a substantial increase in the number of extended absences that our students are out of school, particularly immediately before or after a break. With that often comes a request for work ahead of time. It is wonderful to work with families and students that are so proactive! However, I want to be clear about our practice surrounding these unexcused absences and school work expectations.
- Advance work is often not possible and at times not appropriate. Not knowing context can actually be counterproductive and confusing for the student as independent work cannot replace the classroom experience. There may be times when advance work is possible (i.e. a reading assignment) but it cannot be expected.
- Upon return, it is the student’s responsibility to connect with his/her teachers to establish a plan to make up work as determined by each teacher.
- While our teachers are always willing to help and support students, reteaching each lesson is not feasible and cannot be expected. For lengthy absences, families may want to consider a private tutor if there are particular academic needs or areas of concern.
