What to do if you're absent

If you are going to absent for just one or two days, school policy says that you should check with a peer to find out what you missed in class.  For longer absences, a parent may contact the office and request that teachers send home assignments.
 
I think that I have a better way of addressing both short and long-term absences, however.  This year, I am posting my full lesson plans on this website.  Parents and students are welcome to check these plans ahead of time in order to decide whether a planned absence is a good idea or not, as well as to catch up on any days missed.  Much of the time, the materials and resources that you will need to complete the activities will also be on this website.  Of course, you are always welcome to contact me directly by school voicemail, e-mail, text message, or a Google Voice call direct to my cell phone for emergency situations (Click the "Contact Me" link).
