Now that cold and flu season is upon us, please be aware of the school policy on make-up work as stated in the handbook.

Make-Up Work In cases of excused absences, the teacher will assign any make-up work required.  (This does not apply to vacation absences.)  If a student is present before a test is to be given and absent the day of the test, the test will be taken the first day back, unless other arrangements have been approved by school administration.  
It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all work is completed.  For students who are absent, make-up work may be requested through the office before 9:00 a.m.  This will insure the teachers involved receive enough notice to prepare the assignments.  These assignments must be completed to turn in within a reasonable period of time.  For example, if a student is absent two days, a student will have two days to complete and return the work.  Homework may be picked up in the school office until 3:30.  

The fourth and fifth grade team would like you to know that if you feel your child will only be missing a day, it is okay to wait and have them get the work they missed on the day they return. If they are not feeling well enough to be at school, we want them to focus on resting and getting better. If they are going to be missing multiple days due to illness, and you feel they are able to complete work from home, we will be happy to get it together for you whenever possible.

Be Honest

Be Your Best

As you can see, the rules are very simple yet encompass the behavior we wish to exhibit as young Catholics. Each clasroom has a clip chart so the students will be aware of how their day is going.  If at any time there is a growing concern about a student's behavior, parents will be contacted so the issue can be discussed and resolved.  Students who are ready to learn, come prepared, and make wise choices throughout the week will be very successful. We will be using the Class Dojo app this year. Please load the app and get your access code from your child's teacher.
