I got ds' report card yesterday and he has 16 absences?!? We started a new school and he didnt get the number on his report card, so I had no idea how many days hes missed. Im going to talk to the principal this morning. I think he might fail because of his absenses :( please say a prayer he doesnt have to repeat 1st grade bc of this.

Were any excused? Why did he miss so many days?

He only has 5 that are unexcused, from what Im seeing. Just the normal, dr visits, dentist, he was sick and throwing up for a week.

Only 5 unexcused? That seems like an awful lot. Did you need to provide Doctor's note, and didn't?

When he goes to the doctor or dentist, get an excuse...or just make the appointment for after school. I guess what puzzles me is you act surprised by this information, like you didn't know he missed that many days?

Every time ds has missed, I have provided a note or drs excuse. I dont know what happened to the 5 supposidly unexcused days. 2 of the unexcused he was checked out after 2 pm. We were going out of town to see my grandfather who had a heart attack and stroke (2 different times in the year).

I got a note every time I went to the doctor or dentist. Both the doctor and dentist that takes our insurance is an hour away. By the time he got out of school the places would be closed I didnt have a choice.

I did not realize he missed so many days.

I understand the insurance thing. Jut was confused if you didn't know because if split custody or something. If he had doctor's excuse, they have to count those as excused. Maybe someone just didn't put it in the system?

16 days is a little excessive.

That is a lot of absences. Here they get 5 excused absences a semester. Anything after that is unexcused and truancy gets involved.
