That in Akron I do not have the right to excuse a childs absence. It used to be if a parent said you werent coming to school then it was excused and unexcused was when there was no call.
Now if your reason for calling them off is not sanctioned by the board the absence is unexcused.
I got a bit irritated by the secretery today, cold is not a sanctioned reason. I also learned that -22 windchill is the temp they cancel classes at.
I have little to no heat in my vehicle. It is in single digits here and many schools are closed. I did not take them
I am relieved that the teachers are obligated to allow make ups..
How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong. Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these. GeorgeWashingtonCarver
