Students must do make up work to earn their points for the days that they missed for any excused reason. Makeup must be turned in within one week of returning to school, and it is entirely the responsibility of the student. Students must do all of the following:
1. I hour of physical exercise with description and parents signature.

Unexcused Absences: No Makeup work is allowed and results in a zero for the day.

Medical (1-2 days parent note, 3 or more days doctor note): Make up work is given to the student to earn daily points. They will complete a one –two page summary of the fitness/nutrition article for each day medically excused.
