Apparently, she had planned to transfer to another school, but that fell through. So she decided just to go here for another semester or two. I hope that she's bright. She's got a lot of catching up to do. I have plenty of students who have been in class every day who are struggling with the material.
Anyway, I did what I usually do for students who arrive on the scene late. I told her what we had covered, and what the assignments were. I gave her a grace period to get in the back assignments, but told her that I expected her to have all the new assignments in on time, including taking tomorrow's quiz. We'll see what she does. Either she'll get caught up pretty fast, or she'll get buried. I've seen students go both ways.
