"A house without books is like a house without windows." -Horace Mann       



At different times during the year, your child may need additional help outside  the classroom.   Please do not hesitate to take advantage of the many tutoring options.  During this time, we can look over homework, review for quizzes and exams, and work on weak skills.  In addition, any projects completed early can be checked.

McC Language Arts Department Late Work Policy
  • Daily work is not accepted late. Work is considered late if it is not turned in when the teacher asks for it in class.
  • Quizzes and tests must either be taken prior to an absence or on the first date of return from an absence unless (under special circumstances of extended absence) special arrangements are made with the teacher.
  • Major Projects (a long-range project  that is done at home) will be accepted late under the following guidelines:  All major projects are due on the Monday of the assigned week. Projects will be accepted without penalty through Friday of the same week. Should a project be turned in after Friday of the week it is due, 10 points will be subtracted for each day late - down to the grade of a zero. This would include a student being absent on the Friday at the end of the week the project was due, whether or not the absence is excused or unexcused.
