Just a question for those with school aged children are you required to...
I always bring Dr's notes in no matter what
We always get notes.
We bring release from dr & infusion appointments
Our daughter has a letter of incapacity on file each year with the school from her Rheumatologist so we are never asked for a Drs note( I get one and put it in our binder but the school doesn't ask for it)
We have to have one. Otherwise how will they ever prove you were at the doctor? It can be a pain, but I can also see where they are coming from, too. You always have the one bad apple that likes to take advantage of everything that ruins it for all.
We don't have to have one as there is a letter in my daughters file regarding more than normal absences (dr writes a letter each year for her file explaining reasons for them) - I get them for work so they always give them to us for Daughter for school so we just turn them into the school.
I always get the excuses.
I've never had to have a doctor's excuse. I always let the school know in advance, when she has a doctor appointment. In fact our principal told me last week (daughter has been missing school due to illness), that if I wanted to keep her home until after winter break, they would work with her.
I have never been asked to provide dr notes for my daughter. And we missed a couple days a week at a few points! However we live in a smaller town and have pretty close communication with entire staff on her progress so I suppose they'd never second guess me.
Yes and it's soooooo annoying!
We get a note every time and still got a letter about being turned over to a truancy officer last year! :/
Those letters are often automatically kicked out by the computer system. Call and talk to the school, referring them to the 504.
