One of my students is apparently on a several week vacation to visit family in Mexico which involved missing 2 1/2 weeks of school. She/her parents didn't inform me about the trip before she left. Our attendance person in the office finally got a hold of them after she'd already missed a week and found out about the trip. She won't be back until Christmas break is over. Report cards are due on Friday. Obviously, there's no way for her to make anything up before then. Would you give her an "incomplete" on all the tests she missed, or just exempt her from all of them? She's about a C average student. We give A, B, C, and N (needs improvement). The missing assignments would definitely bump her down to an "N." If all of the work from that 2 1/2 weeks is not factored into her grades, she'll still be in the C range.
