  • Late Work - 50 % - but will accept most all missing work till the week before finals.  - Except for Teacher Cadet
What is Plagiarism?  
  • As stated in the HRHS student handbook “Do not copy another student’s work. This constitutes cheating. Do not give your work to another student to copy. By doing so, you assist another student to plagiarize or cheat, which violates the Honor Code”

  • If you are caught cheating/copying, they will receive a 0 for that assignment.  The second time, the student will be referred to administration.

    • Other forms of cheating include, but are not limited to;

      • Using unauthorized cheat sheets/cell phones

      • Taking pictures of an exam or worksheet and sharing them

      • Parents/others completing student work at home
