My DD missed 3 days of school last week because she was sick. On day 2, I e-mailed her teachers to ask for any homework she could work on at home so she wouldn't get too behind. I heard back from just about every teacher except for the one that she has for 2 different classses. Once we got my DD on antibiotics she started improving and was able to go back to school on Friday. She had a tournament out of state that weekend and the whole team left school at 11:00am on Friday. (This is the one and only time of the year that they do this.)
Before leaving my DD spoke to all of her teachers about what she missed and also handed in all the work she had done while she was sick. All of her teachers were extremely impressed that she was able to catch up so quickly. However, when she spoke to the teacher that she has 2 classes with, the teacher got angry with her that she would miss her other class that afternoon for the tournament. My DD specifically asked for everything she missed and would be missing that afternoon.
Well the next week, I was checking her grades online and this teacher posted that she got an F on a quiz that was given that Friday afternoon when my DD was not there. She never told my DD that she would be missing a quiz. So my DD spoke to her about it yesterday and she said it was too late to make up the quiz and it was her choice to "skip" her class that day.
I told my DD that I would contact the teacher and talk to her about the situation but my DD begged me not to because the teacher would take it out on her and that she actually seems to like her now. (This teacher doesn't really like anyone and is very hard on her students so she must be seeing that my DD is making an effort).
To make matters worse, my DD woke up this morning with a bad stomach ache, diarhea, and nausea and refused to stay home because this teacher would get upset with her if she missed anymore school.
What would you do? I don't want to piss this teacher off but this is ridiculous.
