~~Work Submission

 All work is due the date assigned unless otherwise stated.

Any work due to absence must be made up as per the policy given at the start of the year:  “In case of absences, you will be given one day for each missed day to make up your work.” It is your responsibility to make up any missed work. Work done in class and/or homework may be found in the Daily Work Crate; Daily Data must be copied from a neighbor.

No late work will be accepted one week after the due date; these assignments will lose credit based on their “lateness.” This means that an assignment that was due on a Friday must be submitted by the following Thursday to be accepted for any late credit. This time is not additional to the one day per absence make-up allotment.

Work for which answers are given in class may not be
submitted as late work.

Please show your responsibility and your level of accountability
as you do the very best of which you are capable. 
Show us your Maple Pride!
