This seems to be the year where our grade level is full of parents that just don't seem to care about sending their kids to school. At the beginning of the year we had two families who had students that are first grade age but because they didn't bother sending them to school last year we put them in kinder. Those older kids had sibling who were supposed to be in kinder. So we had two sets of siblings in kinder. One set withdrew both of their kids but we know they still around because another teacher saw them at the park. The other set of kids have missed 43 days of school. I figured out today mine has only been in school about 80 something days. Now tomorrow morning I will be getting a student who has not been in school since December. Frustrated to say the least. New truancy laws make it difficult if the student is under 10. Makes it very hard for us!!! Well just another 30 something days is all I can say.
