ATTENDANCE

SMSAH requires all students to adhere to the following class and clinical attendance guidelines strictly.

Any missed classroom and clinical time, excused or unexcused, will be included in the allowed time of 10% for classroom and 5% for clinical. If a student misses more than 10% of any given course, the student will be required to repeat the course.
  • Students will arrive on time for classes and clinical site and be there for the entire length of the session as stated in the course or clinical schedule. Students must be at the designated place and unit at the clinical site five minutes to the beginning of the assignments. Students must remain on the units for the entire clinical time. Students will not leave for the day until all assignments and documentation are completed and the instructor dismisses them.
  • Missing more than 10% of class time will affect the student’s grade, and excessive absence or tardiness may result in the student’s inability to complete the program. Missing more than 5% of the clinical time in any area will require clinical makeup.
  • Examinations, quizzes, and return demonstration of clinical practicum missed due to absence or tardiness will not be made up.  Exceptions will be made for illness or emergency that is officially documented.

Letraset sheets

September 1st, 2012 @

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using Content here, content here, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for lorem ipsum will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
