Make-Up Work Policy
Your policy for dealing with make-up work should be consistent with the school's policy on excused and unexcused absences. Most schools will issue a policy concerning make-up work, but if your school doesn't, then you need to come up with your own policy.
If students are making up work after an excused absence, it needs to be very clear to them what they need to do and when they need to turn in the work. An excellent way to accomplish this is to create an “Assignment Book.” This is a notebook for each class in which you or a student you designate writes down what was covered during the day, including any homework. The absent student is then responsible for looking at the notebook the day he returns and writing down the assignments.
If a handout is required, these should be available next to the notebook so the students have easy access to them. For younger children, you might want to have the handouts along with other important information and assignments stapled and ready for them when they return. Make sure to write a note indicating when you expect the work to be returned.
