You just have to sign a paper stating that you won't miss anymore unexcused days. That really shouldn't be a problem since there aren't that many days of school left. If you go back to court again for missing more days, you have to get a drug test and they will put you on probation, which is a joke because it isn't enforced. Don't be worried about it.

They have never tested me. Yes you have to sign a paper saying you won't miss and no your parents won't be in trouble. Don't stress its really nothing to worry about.

You dont get drug tested.. they bring you in there talk to your parents, tell you not to miss any more days and you go home.

You sign a paper that says you wont miss anymore days. It's bull when you have to go for little kids like 6 or 7. Next time I will just send mine sick so they can spread it to all. Some of us cannot afford to run to the doctors for everything.

bunch crap doctors arent going to give anything for viruses .they dont like to give antibiotics unless absolutely necessary.antibiotics have been abused that their just not as effective as they were once.and i also dont have the money to run to the dr.every time my child has an upset stomach.and ive been in the medical field long enough to know when my child should see a dr.

I now but the school don't care. So what are you supposed to do my kid is seven in second is on the honor roll but has bad allergys and gets sick. They should have more understanding when there young or even sickly. Not just assume all kids or parents are lazy or on drugs.

Why do you have 6 unexcused absences if you make good grades and do what you are supposed to do? What do you, as a kid, have going on that is so much more important than getting your education? So what if you just don't want to go, suck it up and just go to school. Do you not plan to go to college? If you miss several days in college, They kick you out. If you miss days at work, they fire You. So what if you have a runny nose, or your belly hurts? Suck it up and go to school. Your education should be very important to you. Your future depends on it. Or do you plan to receive a welfare check, food stamps, and live in the projects? Or do you plan to marry Someone that will support you? Your education is what will make that decision for you. Go to school, then Go to college. Its very good that you don't do drugs. To the one that can't pass a drug test, that's just plain pathetic. You guys are kids, high school and college will be some of the greatest days in your life, you will make life long friends and connections, and Remember: what you are doing NOW, will affect your FUTURE. Good luck to you. I hope you will take a little advice from someone who only wants to see you succeed so that you will have a better future.
So u think u lnow it all huh? My kid makes all A's and B's and doesnt like to miss school....actually he enjoys going but has missed 5 unexcused days this year because parents like u send their kids to school dog out sick snd pass it on to my kid! I dont live off welfare and my child wont either. I work 50 hours a week but I dont have insurance. Luckily I have a friend that works at a local pharmacy that has been able to provide me with some antibiotics as needed fo my kid but that doesnt produce a doctors excuse to provide to the school. So maybe u shouldnt be so judgemental. Think before u speak. Some of us arent blessed with lifes luxuries like insurance. It doesnt mean im a shitty parent tho or that I dont bust my ass to provide. I make decent money but I have other bills to pay. Like a home for my kid and utilities and groceries etc!!!

My boyfriend has to go to Truancy Court because he's missed around a month-ish of school. They all had a doctors note AND parental note stating what he had.(He ha's stomach problems from time to time) But even if he has the notes and all, they are sending him to T.C. He lives in Ohio and I do not know how things work there... What is to be expected?
