Dear Prof Lemming
That should be a lower-case l, but no matter.
I'm sorry that I've not yet come to class no problem, it's only been a matter of weeks that class has met and I've never heard of or from you... but I've been busy, etc. etc.
I have every sympathy with students who have lives outside of class. There's a reason why I don't attach a grade to attendence.
At the same time, the mid-term is next week and you still haven't come to class? Not even long enough to get the syllabus and then walk out?
