At some point during the school year, your child may have to miss school, either due to illness or a local holiday. It is also certain that you will have different vacation periods, in which you probably do not have a vacation and have to go to work. Missing school during the middle school years is a bit more difficult in elementary school.
For starters, middle school teachers assume that tweens are able to keep up, and can put up whatever load they see as necessary of homework and homework. When you return from the days without going to school, the teachers will not take into account whether or not you have learned the lessons, since it will have to be the child who does it (and the parents). In this sense, you will have to help your child to keep up with school knowledge.
THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE
Before committing to take a trip or vacation (according to your work calendar) you will have to look at the school calendar to make sure that your child should not miss his classes. Visits to the doctor are best taken into account for afternoons when children are out of school or on school holidays, such as vacation periods .
Healthy life plan
You can also minimize days missed at school by having a healthy life plan to avoid colds , vaccinating against it, and reminding children to practice good hygiene at school and at home.
If your child has to miss school for family commitments (weddings, funerals, etc.) remind your child to ask the teachers for the homework he will do on the days he is not at school so he can know what to do. It’s a good idea to write a note to the teacher or talk to him about this. In this way you can be up to date on homework even if you do not go to class.
You will also need to speak with the teacher to find out what the absent school policy is and what supporting documents you need so that everything is in order.
Have the school contact
It is a good idea that at the beginning of the school year you worry about having contact information for the school and also for your children’s teachers. There are teachers who are good at answering questions and doubts through email or through WhatsApp. If your child is out of school, you can keep in touch with their teachers electronically to stay up-to-date on homework and reading homework.
THE SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS
Many schools require a doctor’s statement if a child misses more than three days of school due to illness. You will have to ask the doctor for this receipt while the illness lasts and take it to the teacher so that he or she knows that your child really does not attend classes because he is sick at home, if that is the case.
ASK FOR HELP IF YOU NEED IT
Sometimes children miss school for an extended period of time due to illness or other family emergencies. Children may also miss school for long trips, once in their lifetime . If your child is out of school for more than a few days, it is important that you call the school to inform them of your family situation and to ask for advice on how to keep your child’s studies as up-to-date as possible. It may be possible for a neighborhood child to bring your homework and return the completed homework to you.
