Grace Period and Exceptions
Homework is due the day after it's assigned unless noted otherwise. With the exception of Wordly Wise WB pages, outlines in science which we go over together on the due date (and for which we provide the correct answers so they can be used as study guides), or any other assignments we go through together on the due date, I will accept work 24 hours after it's due with no penalty. After the 24 hour period ends (at 8 am the schoolday after it's due) I will not accept the late work and it will be marked NIY (not in yet) and receive a score of 60% if a grade is recorded.

Assignments Calendar
Saint Michael Church and School keeps an online calendar. Most teachers use this calendar for assignments. Mr. Ziegler and the office staff use the SMLS heading for school functions. Use this link to get to the master Calendar.
