Hi everyone, I'm curious as to how you personally handle non-valid absences in your classroom. While I reiterate that if a student is absent they need a note explaining their absence and that it is their responsibility to get caught up on the work, etc. I am uncertain how to handle it sometimes. For example, school started this past week for students and I have a student who skipped the first 3 days of class (she'd skipped, not been sick, etc.). She showed up on Day 4 and I gave her the material she had missed, but obviously the class has to move on and I can't reteach her the material in class. Also, she hadn't approached me about the work, I had told her I would give her what she missed. If a student doesn't bother asking you or a friend about the work, do you approach them about it? I'd love to hear what you do as a teacher. Thank you in advance.
