Exemptions: You must follow these steps:
I allow Advanced Placement students the option of exempting three assessments per semester. Here is what you MUST do: Email me through the contact form on this site at least 24 hours in advance explaining to me the valid reason you have to miss an assessment of any kind. You will have the exemption when I reply. This is intended as a stress relief tool, not strategic grade management.
