We keep a "absent work" folder in our room. I pop a few copies of each activity that we do in class into the folder for kids to pick up when they come back.
Absences are a HUGE issue in my district, especially with my students with disabilities. I have one girl who has missed over 30 days of school so far this year (
) and has about 20 tardies. I would love to have assignments posted online for them, but I work in a very low income district and many kids don't have access to a computer/don't know how to work a computer.
When I asked my SPED director for some ideas to deal with these absences, she said that we should discuss it "as a grade level team"
