A student should always be in class unless he/she has an extreme illness or a family emergency.  As this classroom is a simulation of a real office each student (employee) has daily responsibilities, consistent attendance is very important.

If an student is absent, he/she is responsible for any missed information.  He/she must meet with another student or Mrs. Clements to get any materials or training missed.  Lateness cannot be tolerated by employers.  Therefore, students in this program need to develop the habit of arriving to work (class) on time and being prepared to start work immediately.

If you are consistently absent, it WILL AFFECT YOUR GRADE.

This program is a great opportunity.  Your success and the number of Certifications you earn is totally up to you.
