Absences (What Did I Miss Board?) It is the student’s (meaning YOU) responsibility to find out what was missing during his/her absence. This shall be done before or after class, never during class! Any missed assignments should be made up within the numbers of days of your absence. (EX: absent 1 day, missed assignment due 1 day after your return) If you miss a test/ quiz you must make arrangements with me to make it up within 5 days of your return to school or it will result in a zero.
Study Buddy When you are absent you should contact your study buddy. He/She should be in the same Social Studies class as you. This way you will be able to keep track of what was discussed while you were out. You will need two names and phone numbers!
