H1N1 Syllabus Addendum

An addendum to our syllabus (see page six) discusses how our absence policy now takes into account suspected cases of H1N1 flu, which should be reported online. The addendum reads:
In mid-September 2009, in light of illnesses likely to result from the H1N1 flu virus, Colorado State University amended its policies to allow students who self-diagnose as having H1N1 ten consecutive, university-excused absences. The attendance policy for CO150.37 and CO150.44 will take this new policy into account, but only if the student has reported having H1N1 on a secure University website (there’s a link on our blog). Under normal circumstances, per our attendance policy, absences due to seasonal flu and other illnesses will not be excused. If you suspect you’ve contracted H1N1 (see a list of symptoms, including high fever, described by the University and also posted to our blog), report your status online and then contact your instructor at Together we will make arrangements for you to make up in-class work and submit assignments electronically. It is important that you self-isolate and not return to class until you recover.
