HOw do oyu know the note is fake, you need solid in hand proof of this. If you have the proof, this is something your principal should be involved in. There are laws about attending school. This parent may have a problem. On the flip side, if your principal has no issue with it then you can not have an issue with it. Start with your principal. If you do not have "in hand" proof that the parent lied, drop it like a hot potatoe and treat it like any other long term excused absence. Good luck
Good morning all!
I have a trombone student who has missed the last 2 full weeks of school due to his parents taking him on vacation to Hawaii(why didn't they take me instead?).
I get it, if you work a "normal" job and get 2 week of paid vacation every year why not use them during a slow season. But at least own up to it and take the unexcused absences for your student.
I don't know what to do. The kid is now WAY behind and I don't want to punish him for his parents decision but I also can't just let it fly...just isn't in me.
