I don't think so...

Student:  Ms. Alice, I have to run some errands on Monday afternoon but will come to your office on Tuesday so you can show me what you did in class.

Ms. Alice:  Dear Student, unless you have a valid and properly documented excuse for missing the class on Monday, I will not repeat the entire class presentation.  You can still work on your assignments, though, and ask specific questions.

I mean, really???  Unfortunately, I do get these emails from time to time.  In fact, I get enough of them to include a disclaimer on the course syllabus.  Apparently, this student decided to conveniently forget that policy...

I have a disclaimer that says if you are absent, it is your responsibility to find out what you missed.

Sigh..they just don't get it.
