It is our policy that you must attend all scheduled events including orientation. We do understand that there are circumstances where an absence will be approved. However, the only excused absences that are eligible are for family emergencies, illness, and class/exams. This does not include concert tickets or work. Additionally, you must be available during the entire day during the published times. However, you will not be busy the entire time. You will receive a schedule at the beginning of each day.
If you know of or will experience one of the approved absences, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "EXCUSE" and a description of the known absence before the absence takes place.
