Assignment Policy

According to the JMS handbook:
6th grade: Daily assignments and short-term homework assignments should be turned in
                      on time. However, late assignments may be turned in one day late for a
                      reduced point value.
7th and 8th grade: Daily assignments and short-term homework assignments should be
 turned in on time. Assignments turned in beyond the due date may not receive
  credit.

Mrs. Wood's policy basically follows the 6th grade policy. Homework packets are generally provided to students on Monday and due Friday. If not turned in Friday, packets will still be accepted the following Monday for a 10% reduced point value. Packets will not be accepted after Monday. The same policy will be applied to daily assignments; may be turned in one day late for 10% reduced value.

Absences

If a student is absent, it is his or her responsibility to check with the teacher for missed in-class assignments, homework, tests and quizzes. If your student does not have the opportunity to make up assignments that need to be completed at school within their school day, it is his or her responsibility to set a time before or after school with the teacher.
