Every course has a dedicated shell in the Learning Management System and these statements are input into each shell automatically. They are suggested, not required.
Teaching faculty are required to report non-attendance during the first two weeks of the term from a class if the student has not attended. Students will be administratively withdrawn from the course based on non-attendance.
If you miss class, you are still responsible for the material and homework assigned. If you know you will miss class for an official excused absence (e.g., school sports), let me know well in advance via email, and we can arrange an alternate quizzing plan.
