Re: ATTENDANCE CONFIRMATION letter, Rev. 08/2010
Dear Inglemoor High School
Thank you for your letter making us aware of my child’s year to date excused absence from school due to illness.
I the Parent/Guardian, appreciate the reminder and share your concern about the situation, as I live with the student, monitor her academic progress and attendance, try to help her when she struggles with homework, and care for her when she is ill. As noted in your letter, I the Parent/Guardian was the one who called you each day she was too ill to go to school.
I share your stated concern for my daughter’s academic success.
I must confess to some confusion about your requests to me, “encouraging your student’s regular attendance to school”, and “my support in promoting regular attendance”, and your references to district health policies.
What is the correct action to take when my child is too ill to attend school?
Not being a trained educator, I am unfamiliar with the phrase “attendance intervention”, and also unclear how your offer to disallow my daughter from attending all future classes would further the goal of having her attend all classes.
