What to do if you are sick

--Always try to e-mail your professors before the class starts.  If that is not possible, do it as soon as you can.

--Tell them you are missing class today because you are sick.

--Ask them if they can let you know what material you missed.

You should do this for every missed class.  When you are feeling better, we suggest you meet with the professors during their office hours so you are sure that you can make up any work you missed.

If your illness lasts more than 2 or 3 days, you might want to visit the Health Center.  Here is a link to their web site.
