We have been back in school for about a week since Winter Break. On the Monday we returned, I had a student who fell asleep about every 7-10 minutes or so (very generalized guess here...). I let it slide the first morning because I knew he had had a hard weekend and was extremely tired. The next day he came in and immediately fell asleep while trying to do his morning work. I could not keep him awake for more than 5 minutes at a time. Upon discussing the issue with him, I found out that he is living about an hour or possibly more from our school now. His family apparently moved (OUT OF STATE!) over the break, so now he is traveling to get to school. I kind of let it go the first week in order to give him a chance to get it together. He came in this morning and the same thing is occurring. His dad is a police officer in the city and I'm not exactly sure how they're getting away with this. I talked with my principal last week about it and he gave me an "I don't care; I'm not helping" attitude. I went back to him today and asked how I need to address this issue because it's becoming a big problem. He wants me to write a letter to the parents expressing my concern, but not letting on that I know they're living out of state. How should I go about writing this letter without discussing the living situation? I'm not sure of how to go about this or how to word the letter. If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
