  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!)
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.

Comments: This is an appropriate solution but, sometimes parents will not follow through either way. However, there are some that will take such words into consideration and work harder to ensure their child is on time. Really can only hope for a successful turn out.

Comments: Just be sure to not give any "preachy" comments to the parent. If the parent feels as if you're on the offensive, they might make their child come in later out of spite.
