Snow Day/School Cancellation Policies for Thesis Appointments
If school is delayed, you obviously still have any scheduled appointments when it re-opens that day. If school is canceled all day and you had a thesis "required meeting" scheduled with me, you should do the following:
- FIRST, email me anything that was due and you would have turned in at the meeting. If I don't receive your assignment, I'll assume you decided to drop the course.
- NEXT, you have the option to (a) sign up for an upcoming office hour appointment to make up your scheduled meeting and get caught up. As always, my office hour times are posted on my door. Please don't email me about scheduling times as I don't know from home what times are taken on my office door. ORRRR (b) you can skip that week's meeting and come to the next meeting with double the work made up so you're still caught up. If you choose the skipping option, you'll need to email me that you've decided to do this so I don't just mark you absent for that appt. week.
- I recommend taking option "a" because if you choose to skip a set of meetings altogether, you are personally responsible for getting caught up with all writing, data collection, and/or IRB submissions. Depending on where you're at, this may be extremely hard to do without direction. But it really is your choice and you will not be penalized for either option.
