Another question about absences, this time about valid absences on religious holidays. Say you have students who are absent due to religious holidays. As per protocol where I work, I can't give them work to take home on their religious holiday. But I still have to work with the students who are there, especially if a good chunk of the class is there (only a few are away due to the religious holiday). When students come back from their absence, is it okay to give them work that was covered on the holiday that they now have to catch up on, or do you think that's not appropriate if they were away for a religious holiday? What if you have a particular class where the majority are away for the holiday? What do you do on that day? I'm a new teacher, so I'm still getting the hang of these things. As someone who works at a diverse school, I'd appreciate your insight!
