Thing is.....THIS WEEK IS OPEN WEEK PLUS EARLY RELEASE FRIDAY AND NO SCHOOL MONDAY.
Yet...They will not be there the week before UIL.
How do I address this? I know it is not the students fault and dont want to place anger in the wrong place. How do I tell parents (without sounding like a nazi) about the expectations. For most of these kids its not them wanting to go, but their parents forcing them to go and miss. I want to tell the parents how it is and how important every person is yet I dont want to burn parent bridges that keeps their children out of the program in the future when it is NOT THE KIDS FAULT.
I HATE punishing kids for parents.
What do I say??
**Sorry rant over. Apologies for yelling**
