I hate confrontation, but..... (teacher related)

My son was absent due to waking up with strep-throat, and we had to go to Texas for a family emergency, and ended up having to stay longer than anticipated.

My son is 6 and in 1st grade. He had a reading log that was supposed to be turned in, but he was absent (excused absence) on the day it was due. Sooo because we were gone, even though he had it finished....more than the required amount in fact.....she's making him sit alone in the classroon with her while the rest of the class gets to go have a pizza party.

We are going to the principal in the morning to see what can be done because he's being punished for something he had no control over!.

How come you didn't get it turned into the teacher the day prior? Or at least make some sort of contact with the teacher knowing something specific was due? I kind of feel it could have been prevented.

He shouldn't be punished for circumstances beyond his control.

Oh totally. My crystal ball told me he would wake up with strep and not be able to go to school to turn it in. He had a dr.'s note for those 2 days, and we had to leave suddenly on Sunday morning. He's in 1st grade fpr christ sake, and he did the required reading.

I don't get it. The teacher is punishing him for late homework by making him sit in class alone? Can it be that she just wanted him to stay so that she could go over topics he missed while was away?

Okay but you said you had it done by the time it was due, didn't you? I'm just saying could you not have turned it into the school the day it was due even though your son was still on  his absent day?

What? He was absent on the day it was due. He finished it the night before, and woke up with strep the next morning. And, no, I can't take my kid in the school with strep to turn in a damn reading log. As with all excused absences, he shoukd have been able to turn it in when he got back.
