Excused Absences: You must contact me by email BEFORE you are absent from class.
You are still responsible for completing all assignments and homework as scheduled.
Your instructor will arrange for you to make up work that you have missed, including inclass assignments and tests.
Unexcused Absences: If you do not contact me BEFORE you are absent from class, you
cannot make up any missed in-class assignments or tests given on that day. Homework
assignments due on days that you are absent will not be accepted and you will receive a
