Up to three days of illness, a written excuse from the parent or guardian must be submitted. If the illness lasts longer than three days, a sick note from the doctor must be submitted.

However, there is also long-term homework such as making posters, learning poetry or preparing lectures, which of course has to be done together with the parents at home. The same applies to learning before major class tests.

The basis for awarding the head marks (conduct, diligence, cooperation, order) is the regulation of the Saxon State Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs on grammar schools in the Free State of Saxony. Each subject teacher submits his or her proposal, disputes are then discussed in the grading conference and the head marks are then determined.
