Makeup Sessions

We include 1 or 2 weeks of make-up classes as part of our semester planning in the event that one or two of your classes are canceled due to holiday or other official GLN cancellations. Please include those extra sessions in your planning since they will count towards your semester attendance should they need to be used.
