We know it is inevitable that students will be ill at some point during the school year. When a student is going to be out ill our primary concern is that they are able to rest and get well as quickly as possible. Therefore, Wildwood has decided to change our protocols on requesting missed work. If a student is only absent for one day the student will have an additional day to make up the work. Requesting missed work for a single day’s absence is not in the best interest of the ill student. The last thing a sick student needs to worry about is being forced to complete work when they are not 100%. If a student is going to be out two or more days then a request for work will be taken. Please call the office to request the work for your child. The message will then be relayed to the classroom teacher so they can prepare the materials needed to be picked up after school at 3:00pm. Please make sure to call the office to verify that the work is ready to be picked up as there are many variables that could affect the work being ready. (Substitute, Emergency, Parent Conference, Faculty Commitments, etc) If the work cannot be prepared for any reason please keep in mind that our school policy gives students 1 day for every day they are absent to complete the missed work. Thank you!
