See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Last night i was having a conversation with my son about his school. I personally do not like how they run the school they seem to be a bit on the incompetent side. The teachers are great but the administration really needs to figure out how to run a school. I have a dd in a different school and they should give lessons. we were discussing this. Several weeks ago there was a fire in the school. and the school was evacuated but it was very chaotic. NO one knew what to do not even teachers who just kept telling kids to go. when the police and fire dept got there and I couldn't get in touch with the school. I was on the phone with my son and I told him to just leave. The school never called me to tell me he missed a class. they don't call me to tell me anything. If my dd is more than 4 mins late to a class i get a phone call. So we were talking and he tells me that the school will only call if a student skips a class between 1st period and 5th period that they won't call for periods 6-9. To which i pointed out his school sucks lol but that when report cards came parents would find out because each class takes attendance. If you are absent from a class or a day each teacher would record it and then on the report card they put the number of times the child was absent per class right next to the grade. I pulled out his last report card and showed him where it said it. He hasn't missed a day yet this year so all of his were 0's I showed him his sisters report card (they do report cards the same way) and showed where she missed 2 classes (non cutting she had permission to be in another room but the teacher still marks an absence) Well the look on his face the best way to describe it would be deer in headlights. The expression of OH SHIT came across his face. When i started questioning it he just smiled and said na just kidding. I should have report cards within a cpl of days. But if he's skipping classes he's gonna be one sorry kid.
