Late Arrivals
If a student has a doctor's permit or some other appointment and they are late that is one thing but what do you do with a student who arrives everyday with no excuse expect mom didn't feel like getting up. How do you handle this situation? Should me as a teacher say something to that parent?

I would definitely reach out to the parent in a respectful mannor. I would make sure to send an email requesting an conference at their earliest convince. During the conference I would let the parent know the importance of getting to school on time. I would let them know how much of a distraction it is for the whole class everyday when the child is coming in late and how much instruction time they are missing. I would remind the parent you are only reaching out because you have their child's best intrest at heart.

I like this solution because I believe a sit-down meeting is the best way to talk to a parent but a parent who doesn't even want to get up in the mornings might not even show up for a parent-teacher conference.

I agree with this solution. This is what I would do. Informing the parents of the benefits and possible consequences could be beneficial.

It is definitely appropriate to reach out to the parent or guardian about this issue. I would bring it up during a conference, or send a note home with the student. Explain that the student is missing valuable class time.

The best thing is to contact the parent(s). Understanding the situation of late arrival can be determined from the parent. The parent may have a more valid reason for his/her child is late or they may not know that their child is running late and this can be a issue the parent has to resolve with his/her child(ren).
