Five minutes late each day  X  32 classes = 3.5 days of absences or 11% of the total or 1 full letter grade!!!

 SIGN IN FOR PARTICIPATION POINTS DAILY.  Record the time when arriving late or leaving early..... It demonstrates RESPECT to others as well as being an accountability and integrity issue.   If you forget to sign in you may email me later in the day, describe what we did in class and I will give you credit.  Do not wait until the next class meeting.

                          YOU HAVE AN EFFECT ON THE WHOLE CLASS!!!

MAKEUPS:   You may make up missed classes in any Saddleback Yoga class...Use the makeup form and return to me...A MAXIMUM OF 3 MAKEUPS PER SEMESTER-  You may only change your letter grade one grade(you may not move from a “C”to an “A”.  It is recommended that you take the class credit/no credit if you are aware that the number of times you will be absent is beyond YOUR desired letter grade

DO NOT SIGN IN FOR OTHER STUDENTS. SEE THE ACADEMIC CODE OF CONDUCT PAGES 40-41 IN THE SADDLEBACK STUDENT HANDBOOK.  DISHONESTY WILL COUNT AS 4 ABSENCES (One full letter grade) AND BE REPORTED TO THE VP OF STUDENT AFFAIRS.  Make ups will not be allowed to absences due to dishonesty.
