What are y'alls opinions of GCMS Principal Stuart Hurley?

It has been said that he told a parent the best thing she could do was withdraw her 8th grade child instead of trying to solve the issue at hand.

The child missed some days of school, due to illness, injury, etc. 12 over the course of the entire year. The mother recieved a letter saying she was going to be arrested. She gathered the papers from all Drs visits and went to the school. The lady that works in the little office at the front of GCMS was rude, principal was rude, superintindent was rude. None cared that she tried to solve the issue. They are saying that it is the parents responsibilty to come to the school and make sure that not only are excuses turned in, but that they are filed, and futhermore filed correctly. Obviously they do not require the employees to do their job.

It is state law that when a student misses school they have 3 days to bring back an excuse when they return, that is for the entire state of MS. If they do not bring the excuse in the time allowed then truancy takes over and it is out of the schools control. As for the rude part, the mom probably did not like their answers and got rude herself. They probably told her to check behind her child and make sure the note was turned in. Schools have rules to follow whether you like them or not.

Seems like common sense would also be allowed.

No, just apply some common sense to go along with it which was the intent.

Stuart Hurley is a tail hole from the start. Thinks he is hot poop on a stick when in reality he is only a fart on a splinter!

What about 3 days after child returns to school is so hard? Like, I said before once a student reaches so many days truancy comes in, school can not do anything about it. The parent should have made sure dr excuses were turned in, it is on the parent.

It sounds like the mom sent notes, and the school staff are making excuses about it. I have sent notes, and found them in my child's backpack when they get home. I have asked the teacher about it the next day and she just said she forgot to get it out and turn it in. I have also had my child counted absent while on a Spirit field trip. The school staffs aren't immune to making mistakes. They are human too. A little courtesy goes a long way.

My child has attended GCMS for the last two years. I have never had any trouble or rudeness from anyone. The lady in the guidance office is always nice to me. My son all at once missed an entire week (Monday-Friday) sick! He had 3 different doctor excuses and I personally delivered them when I went to pick up his homework. Never heard a word about it! It is what you make it!
