If your child has an unpleasant story to tell you do not make it worse for him/her by becoming visibly upset. This will only upset the child even more. Let your child tell the story in his or her own wa3 in his or her own time. If you resort to an "interrogation," you will likely get the story from a biased point of view. If the problem persists, call or write the teacher. Communication with your child's teacher. Keep the lines of communication open. Checkyour child's agenda daily. This is the teacher's best method of communicat- ing with you. Always go to the teacher with any prob- lems before going to the princip. You and the teacher are on the same side - the side of your child. The teacher wants your child to succeed. Make a friend of the teacher. Missed Work. If your child is absent due to an ill- ness, he or she may need extra attention from you in order to get caught up on assignments missed. Your child most'likely has a given number of days to get the work done and turned in. If the illness is prolonged, you may call the school for assignments, but be sure to make every effort to see that the work is actually done. This extra effort on the part of your child's teachers is very time consuming and the time is taken from their planning or from their classes. This practice is one that is encouraged if you plan to see that your child does the work. If you have an occasion in which your child can- not complete a daily assignment because of a family emergenc write a note to the teacher asking for a one- day extension. It is likely that your child will have con- sequences at school for missing work. "Homework" for the parents is to instill the importance of school as- signments in your children. Be involved. Show your child that you wnt tO be involved in his or her school. Whenever you get notifi- cation of a school meeting, or a school need, show that you are interested. Participate in various activities at school. If there is a school event, show up with your child. Child's Attendance. You, as the parent have the power to control your child's attendance, including be- ing on time. Poor attendance and tardiness directly af- fect a child's school success in numerous ways, emo- tionally as well as scholastically. Please understand that signing out is the same as being absent. Your child will miss vital instruction. Instruction continues up until dismissal. When you sign your child out unnecessarily, you are telling your child that school doesn't matter. Restrict sign outs to sickness of the child, or a true fam- ily emergency. "Homework" for you as the parent is to keep your child in school. .Yes, parents have "homework." Your homework continues as long as you are responsible for your child. Without your part, your child's school experience will not be all that it can be.
