Q & A: Student Absences
Each month we invite teachers to submit questions that they would like to have answered. This month’s question is from Denise, who writes:
“My question has to do with student absences. Currently, when a student is absent, I try to remember to put any homework papers with the absent child’s name on it on the board, so that when the student returns he or she can find it on the board and take it home. I don’t always remember to do that though. I post homework assignments on the board on a daily basis (it stays up all week). I would like to hear how other teachers deal with work or papers sent home when students are absent.”
