And sometimes life happens. I'm completely understanding of that.
When I taught at the local community college, I once had a class that ended up with only two students by midterms. The rest either dropped or stopped coming. I started with eight.
The rule there was that the professor had to stay for 30 minutes if no one came because I live in an area with traffic issues.
So on a particular night, I knew that one student wouldn't be there because he was vacationing. I had to hold class because I'm only allowed to cancel once, and I had already cancelled one night when I was in the ER with DH.
I arrived early and waited. The other student was typically early, so I emailed and texted her shortly after the start time. Nothing.
Finally after 30 minutes, I emailed both students and my dean and went home.
The expected student lived in a remote area and had been cut off from the highway and power for three days because of multiple downed trees. They had no internet and couldn't recharge phones.
So sometimes you just really can't get there...
