STUDENTS WHO ARE ABSENT
It is extremely important that you check the Assignments page of my website and make up as much work as possible BEFORE you return to class. It is difficult to "catch up" on your work once you have fallen behind. Please be mindful that you are always responsible for ALL work missed when you are absent, regardless of the reason for the absence.
