Attendance Policy Class attendance is beneficial to students.  The departmental attendance policy applies to every student.  If you cannot attend a class or must leave early, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to arrange with a classmate to get the notes, assignments, projects, schedule changes or any other information presented.  DO NOT ask the instructor for materials or to repeat the lecture.  If you must leave class, do so in a manner that does not disrupt others.  If you see that someone is absent, please collect the materials for them and ask that they do the same for you. The Culinary Arts Department Policies apply.
