Absences equally affect a student’s ability to learn and practice the language, regardless of reason for not being in class.

It is up to each student to check for missed work in the occasion of an you may contact another student or the teacher outside of class time. Students are given 1 day for every day that they are absent to complete any make up work. Students are required to meet pre-scheduled deadlines regardless of absences. If a student is absent for a test, the student will take the test in another classroom upon his or her return. DVQs can be made up before or after school any day, with the exception of when Señora Cameron has a faculty meeting. They will not be available to be made up during a student’s lunchtime or during class.
