I know there are some college students on here, so, as a professor, allow me to offer you this bit of advice.
You are not doing yourself any favors when you email your professor on the first day of class and say that you're vacationing with your family and won't be back for another two weeks, so you'll need accommodation.
It is, of course, your prerogative and your family's prerogative to vacation while classes are in session, but I am under no directive to accommodate what is your choice. It is also your choice to stay in the course, knowing that you will be penalized for choosing not to be in class, or to drop it and retake the course at another time when you can actually devote the time required.
