About Class Attendance

Basically, it is desirable to make a vaccination reservation outside of class hours, but if you cannot make a reservation, you can make a reservation during class hours. If you make an appointment for vaccination during class time, please report the appointment date to your teacher in advance by filling in the appointment date on the notification of absence. Vaccination days will be treated as attendance. However, this is only possible if you have submitted a public vacancy notice in advance. If you report on the day or after, you will be marked as absent.
