VIRTUAL LEARNING  ATTENDANCE

 

During virtual learning, students will be considered present upon submission of a completed daily assignment for all classes.  Parents will be notified electronically during the school day if their child is not learning synchronously with their teacher.  

 

ABSENCES:  If a student is absent from school, a parent should call the school at 360-0800 by 9:00 A.M. to report the absence. 

 

 If a student will be absent for a reason other than what is considered excused in the Code of Conduct, a parent must submit a request in writing, including a parent signature, to the principal prior to the date of absence to be considered excused.  In accordance with HCPS, parents may request a maximum of 10 excused days.  

 

Acceptable excuses include the following:

  1. Illness of student
  2. Serious illness in family which necessitates absence of student
  3. Death in family
  4. Special and recognized religious holidays
  5. Other reasons approved by principal
Homework Policy

VIRTUAL LEARNING ASSIGNMENT POLICY

Teachers measure student mastery through a variety of assignments, ex. test/projects, quizzes, classwork and independent practice.  Completion of these assignments is essential for teachers to guide instruction in their classes while supporting students to maximize their learning.  Thus, all Pumas will be held accountable for completing all assignments in their classes.

 

If work is completed asynchronously, to receive full credit the assignment must be submitted by 11:59pm on the day it was assigned. If the student turns in any completed assignment late, after 11:59pm, within the unit of study, the student will earn a grade of 65% for that assignment.  If the student does not turn in the assignment prior to the unit test, they will not earn credit for that assignment. Teachers will record “NTI” (Not Turned In) to the PowerSchool gradebook on the day the assignment was due. If students turn in the assignment late, the special code “L” should be entered, which will set the grade to be 65%. 

Make-up Work Policy

Students absent from school will have the number of consecutive school days missed to make up missed assignments. 

            

             Examples:         Absent on Monday: All work due Wednesday (OR the next time you see that teacher)

                                       Absent Monday and Tuesday: All work due Thursday (OR the next time you see that teacher) 

  

It is the student’s responsibility to get all assignments completed.  Students absent more than five days will have a maximum of two weeks to make up work missed during their absence, depending on the length and nature of the absence.  For extenuating circumstances, please notify your child’s school counselor.
