Make up work
Arrangements to make up any missed material due to an absence must be made within two days of
the student’s return to school. The student is responsible for asking the teacher about these
arrangements. Students are also responsible for any missed notes due to absence. Unexcused
absences will fall under rules identified in the St. Pius X handbook for make up work.

Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program
At the end of this section, students will take a cumulative test covering information provided by the
Georgia Department of Transportation. A grade of 70% or better will earn the student an ADAP card which
signifies a passing grade on the test. This card is mandatory for the student to obtain a valid driver’s license
in the state of Georgia (does not apply to a learner’s permit). If the student does not pass with a 70% or

semester, dates to be announced. For each article students will be asked to answer a set of
questions and provide a short written synopsis. They will also be asked to give a 2 – 3 minute oral
presentation identifying the major points and their opinion of the article.
