This is in regard to the March 22nd issue of the Campus Ledger in which the article entitled Grey Areas: Emergencies and Attendance Policies appeared.
I was simply trying to bring to light issues with the attendance policy and emergencies that students have from time to time such as the one I had. It was not my intent to point fingers or blame anyone for the attendance policy. It was simply meant to state that the attendance policy should be be flexible for those who have extenuating circumstances. I know that instructors do what they are told to do, but just allow them to have the flexibility to help their students when things like this happen. You might be surprised at how much happier students and instructors will be.
