  Case: 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?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
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.

Comments: I think the teacher should ask the parent why the student is late before beginning the list of reasons why it is inappropriate a little understanding goes a long way.

Comments: If this parent doesn't think getting up in the morning to bring the student is school is worth it, they might not even bother checking notes from the teacher.
