For example, you can write:

【 Absences and Late Arrivals 】

  1. 6 or more absences = no credit.
  2. Late policy:
    If you are late by 15 minutes or more = absent
    If you are late to class, I will add the time to your late record.
    Each time your late record reaches 15 minutes, you have 1 more absence.
    Example: Day 1: Late 6 minutes, Day 2: Late 3 minutes, Day 3: Late 7
    minutes. Total = 16 minutes. So, it’s 1 absent and 1 minute.
  3. If you have a school-approved absence form, your absence will be forgiven. In issues of difficult sickness or other really unavoidable circumstances, talk to me.
  4. Sleeping, using a cell phone (without my permission), or otherwise not participating in class will be counted as an absence..
