This is a form I use in my classroom when I have students absent. I have a classmate be in charge of keeping track of any class work and homework for the absent student. They fill this form in and collect any papers as they go from class to class. At the end of the day, the classmate puts the form in the student's classroom mailbox slot or a homework buddy takes it home, whichever is applicable. Either way, it helps the absent student stay on track with what they missed while they were out.
I kept this producteditable, so you can customize it to your specific subjects.
