ATTENDANCE:

Attendance is absolutely expected.  If for any reason a student needs to legally miss class, I would recommend that I be given a chance to get work in advance ready at least 2 to 3 days before absence.  If ill, I would recommend asking guidance to issue notice to teacher to send work home as quickly as possible.

MAKE-UP WORK:

If legal absence, the student will have a full week to make-up work. If further time is needed due to a lengthy absence, the student and teacher will decide on a reasonable time schedule and due date for makeup work.  If additional help is needed to help the student achieve make-up work, the student may stay after school from 2:35 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. with the teacher approval first.

Note:  The student is allowed to stay after school as long as the teacher is notified at least a day in advance.

TEACHER CONTACT:

I can be reached through direct mail to the high school.  
I can also be reached through the guidance or front office call memos.  However, I will probably return calls at the end of the day due to being in class.
I can also be reached through the school email using  Tina_Crawford@wasdpa.org
I will be sending progress reports home with your student every Friday for parent signature to be returned Monday by the student.
