summer work policy

Submitted by Adam Johnson / Harvey Mudd College on Thu, 06/24/2010 - 20:36

does anyone out there in VIPEr land have a department policy on missed work during the summer?  I am asking specifically about medical or family emergency (ie, excused absences) but it would be also good wo know whats out there regarding unexcused missed days.

Sadly, I ask because one of my student's family members is having a serious medical emergency and the student has missed a lot of work and I expect more over the next week or so.
