He's missing half of it.
And he's missing ALL of the fourth day of school.
We are going as a family (okay, minus Garrett, since he's in Romania) to the mountains.
This is the only time we get to spend with Trammell all summer - the next 2 days.
So, I called the school to excuse him from school.
There are new rules.
IF you are excusing your child from school EARLY,
your student must bring a NOTE to the office in the morning.
You cannot just call the school and leave a message on their "Attendance Line."
A lot of days, we don't know if Parker is going to miss school.
Sometimes he goes and the German teacher says, "Come on kids, you are going to sit in the theater and hang out while I assemble sets for the school musical."
On those days, Parker suddently has an appointment.
If he gets to class and there is a last minute substitute who says, "Sorry, your teacher isn't here. You can just work on homework," then he suddenly has appointment.
He calls. I say "Yea" or "Nay" and we go from there.
If I said "Yea," then I call and excuse him.
But I am a rule keeper.
I can play that game!
I just gave these to Parker to keep in his car.
Yep - Parker will have a little note in his car for each period. If he suddenly has to miss class for "an appointment," we're golden.
