In unavoidable absences, make-up work is the responsibility of the student. Tests may be made up during activity period or other class periods (with teacher's approval).  Re-test and other missing assignments may also be completed at this time.  Class notes should be copied from a classmate. Late homework will not be accepted unless absent or at the teacher’s discretion. Students have five days to make-up work when absent.



    The Littlefield Middle School Discipline plan will be followed and the Robeson County Student Code of Conduct.



    Students should attend class daily.  When students enter the room, they should go to their seats quickly and quietly, ready to begin work.  The attendance policy for the public schools of Robeson County will be followed.
