When you, one of my students is absent it is your responsibility to find out what you missed on the day or days you were absent. You do this by going onto my web site and looking through the posted assignments and asking me questions. I do accept late assignments and dock 20% from the points. If you were out of class for some reason I do not count the assignment as late IF you tell me on the assignment why it is late! Make a note with the reason the assignment is late;
for hardcopies put the note near your name
for emailed copies put the note in the subject line
for google classroom make the note in the comment section.
If you don't let me know "the why" then I will consider it a late assignment and will dock the 20%! Telling me verbally helps, but is not a gaurantee that I will remember when I'm grading, that is why written notes work best.
