What the.....????

One of my girls (who has 18 absences and has lost credit for that reason) just came back after missing a week and a day of school. She had a pass for Tuesday, which stated it was an excused absence for "planning." I asked her what that meant and she told me that she took the day off to PLAN HER BIRTHDAY PARTY.

I will remember this in three weeks when she is appealing for credit.

Oh. My. That is the worst excuse I have ever heard!

My son missed 23 days of school when he was 55 days into this school year. He was mad when they kicked him out!

UGH! Teenagers!

The school accepted the note??

Wow. They're in school for what, 35 hours a week? And she couldn't spare any of the rest of her time for something so trivial?

Seriously? And it was excused?!
