She basically was like well the girl has missed 18 classes this Trimester. Which I am aware of but she had some tough times at home. The girl has a lot of work to make-up (3 tests and 2 quizzes) and the teacher wanted to take points off for completing them after the makeup deadline for her class. I told her that wasn't going to happen. I also explained to her that the e-mail I sent out to all of her teachers stated that all work should be allowed to be made-up and if possible the teacher should excuse students from some of the smaller assignments (quizzes for example). She said she understood that but they still should be made-up in a timely fashion. I replied with sometimes things get in the way of life. I told her that the students has until the day Report Cards are issued to finish everything. I also instructed her to excuse the quizzes for the students as quizzes in her class are worth 15% of the grade and she gives them a few times per week.
