Alternate assignments may be assigned as make-up work, however missing out on the work in class will sometimes result in missing key concepts.

Scheduling a tutoring session to make-up essential work may also be required. Assignments missed will be found online in our Google Classroom class. Since make-up work can vary, it is essential that the student check-in with me after an absence to ensure that the correct work is completed.  Students will have three days to complete make-up work from the day they return from their absence.

Attendance

The hands-on nature of the course will require daily participation and effort. Daily attendance is very important.
