prior to report cards being sent home. This provides time for students to rework assignments they want to
improve on, to complete assignments, and/or make up for missing work.

Handing in Work

We understand that life happens and that sometimes work may not be complete on time. Please make sure
you make arrangements with your teacher to discuss any late assignments and arrange for an alternative
due date. Missing assignments will be given a grade of NHI, which means not handed in. If by the
end of the reporting term, the assignment is still missing, your NHI will be reflected on your report card.
