LATE ASSIGNMENTS


The date given for assignments is not the due date. It is instead the deadline i.e. the final date on which the work will be accepted. That means that you are free to hand in the assignment before the deadline and, in general it will therefore not be accepted after that date. Most especially the following excuses are not valid reasons for an assignment being late and will NOT be accepted even if your parent sends in a note to that effect:

  • I forgot
  • I was not at school when you gave that piece of work
  • I do not have a computer at home
  • the computer crashed
  • my files are corrupted
  • I lost my jump drive
  • the printer is not working
  • the printer ran out of ink
  • I had a busy week of exams, other assignments
  • I had a test
  • I had to go out of town/the country
  • I had a field trip
  • I had a doctor's or dentist's appointment
  • my partner did not come to the meeting(s)
  • my partner has the file/paper and did not come to school today
  • I had it but you did not ask for it
  • I did not come to school that day and this is the first time we're having a class since then
  • there was a natural disaster

Late work will only therefore be accepted with a valid written excuse from home AND if the marked assignment has not already been returned to the class. You will lose 5% for every day (Sunday to Saturday) for which it was late.

Work for me is to be handed to me, not to any other teacher. In addition, leaving work on the desk in the Lab is not regarded as handing in work.



REWARDS
