Attendance
Attendance in this course is crucial to student success since many of the modules and blended
activities will be difficult to make up outside of normal class time. Please only miss when absolutely
necessary, and work diligently to get caught up quickly. Specific time frames will be determined as
appropriate for each situation.
Extra Help
I am available for extra help or for making up lab work each morning from 7:10 – 7:30 AM. Other
times may be arranged by the student if necessary.
