    The faculty, have agreed upon a later work policy that should give kids a little bit of grace when they do not turn in assignments on time. It is critical that students log in every day, but if they miss the 11:59 deadline there is a short window of time in which teachers will accept the work with a penalty to the grade. Failure to sign in to a class will result in an absence and may cause a student to lose credit for the semester for that course.
