Q: How do I request homework information during my student’s absence?

  • A student must be absent for at least 2 days before requesting the main office to assemble homework.
  • Students should utilize the team/classroom websites, contact a “homework buddy,” or use the other methods teachers have identified to access homework information to find out about missed assignments for an absence of only 1 day.
  • Upon returning to school, the student should check in with his/her teachers.
  • Homework requests for 2-day absences should be submitted to the Main Office by 10:00 a.m. on the day it will be picked up.  Teachers will determine appropriate due dates for these assignments, and will offer students an opportunity to seek extra help before and after school when they return. The homework may be picked up from the Main Office between 3:15 and 4:30 pm.
  • For a week or more absence: a request must be submitted at least a week before the homework is needed.  Parents should be aware that not all schoolwork may be made up independently; students may need to meet with teachers before or after school for additional “catch-up,” to take missed tests/quizzes, or to do project work.
  • For any long-term absence due to illness (at least 10 days), homebound instruction may be arranged through the Student Services Administrator.
