Frequently Asked Questions


What if i’m absent?

  • Visit the “Make-Up Work” log in our classroom when you arrive to class the next day you are present.

  • Late assignments are not accepted; However, each student will receive one ‘late work’ pass per quarter (4 total) that allows them a one day extension for any assignment without penalty.


What if i plagiarize a submission?

  • You will receive a zero on the assignment due to the English department’s strict zero-tolerance policy for plagiarism.


What if i need help?

  • Email me, schedule an appointment with me during L1 on B days, and/or ask about the NHS peer tutoring that is offered at our school!
