  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've had students who didn't even come to school because their parent didn't want to get up to bring them on the rare occasion. When it becomes and reoccurring thing, it becomes an issue. Students can only miss a certain amount of days, but as teachers we all know that students missing just one day of school or being excessively late can be an issue. They miss out on so much by missing one day or by being late. This is definitely a conversation you should have with administration because it can become a legal issue when students are missing too much school. Also, have a conversation with the parent to see if you can arrange a routine so that they aren't late as often.
