Procedure for making up assignments:  The best method of getting make-up work is by e-mail written as early in

           the day as possible.  Addresses are located in the handbook.  Assignments given prior to the excused

           absence will be due the day the student returns. THIS IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY.  Read

  1. 18 in the handbook.

 

           Students who miss class because of a doctor’s appointment are expected to turn in work that is due that day

           either before leaving for the appointment or upon returning.  This will also offer an opportunity to get the work

           that will be missed during class. PLEASE NOTEMAKE UP TESTS ARE NORMALLY GIVEN BEFORE
