3. WHAT HAPPENS IF I START LATE or IF MY ASSIGNMENT IS LATE?
Contact your teacher to discuss. Students WILL be suspended from their accounts if there is unsatisfactory progress in the course. These suspensions will occur at midterm when progress is evaluated.
Because St. Gabriel school allows you flexibility, you will NOT be penalized for late assignments as long as you are communicating with your teacher. In other words, PowerSchool will show "zero" but you can hand in the assignment late as discussed with your teacher.
Please note that there is a FINAL due date at the end of the semester in either January (Semester 1) or June (Semester 2) when all assignments MUST be submitted.
