 Student Reflections for Success


  Late/Missing Work Assignment Form

Late Work Policy:

  • All late work requires students to fill out Missing Assignment Form.
  • Late work will NOT be accepted after the unit exam for those learning targets.

Make-up/Late work Policy:

Students are responsible for scheduling time to make up missed work.  Missing/late work will be accepted until the date of assessment for those targets.

  Missing/Late work requires a completed late work slip form.  No late work will be accepted without completed late work form.  All homework is due the day after it is assigned, unless otherwise indicated.

Pacific Cascade Middle School Late Work Policies: Expectations for students when on school related absences from class

          Work Assigned Prior to Scheduled Absence:

                  When an assignment or project has been assigned before a student's absence it is expected that it be turned in on the due date if they are at school any part of the day or the day they return if they were not at school on the due date.

          Work Assigned on the Day of a Scheduled Absence:

                   When work is assigned on a day the student is at school but misses part of the day for an excused school related absence the student is expected to check in with their teacher(s) for the assignment (or check the teacher websites) and it is due on the regular scheduled day.

                   When work is assigned a day that the student is not at school for an excused school related absence the student gets ONE day for every day they are absent to make up work.
