Make Up Work
Absences may be excused with
prior principal permission. When your child returns from an excused absence,
the teacher will provide make-up assignments, along with a reasonable
timeline for completion. The student is responsible for completing missed work.
(From ISD Elementary Schools Parent Handbook, pg 2).
Please note that per district policy and as
indicated on the Pre-Approved Absence Request Form we do not provide
assignments in advance of absences. Instead we will provide make-up
work. When possible, teachers may have suggestions for how you can
support your child’s learning during the absence (reading a book, making a trip
journal, math practice, etc.).
Regular attendance is critical to the learning process. Research shows that frequent absences seriously affect learning. Please note that missed lessons, class activities, discussions, etc. may not be made up and replicated when your child returns. Your child will miss class activities yet will be responsible to make up missed work.
