Policy on Missed Tests and Late Work

Students are allowed to make up no more than one missed test or in-class writing assignment if and only if they are able to provide detailed documentation of the reason for their absence (e.g. a doctor’s note in cases of illness that clearly stipulate the dates on which the student is unable to attend school). There is a penalty for late submission of take-home written assignments (i.e. essays). Late essays will be penalized by a half letter grade per day and will not be accepted after one week past the original due date. Late essays will only be accepted if the student makes arrangements with their tutorial leader before the due date. Permission for late submission will only be granted in exceptional circumstances.
