If an assignment is due upon your return date, then your assignment is also due that same day. Late assignments will have a minimum automatic 25% point deduction for each day late.
3. Handouts and returned projects/quizzes will be brought to class on one day only. Missed handouts can be duplicated from a classmate's handouts or ask a classmate to pick-up any handouts for you. Returned items that a student misses may be picked up at my office.
