We have had attendance issues in the past. We go in for a meeting with the school last week and while we're there, the secretary comes in saying that if SS doesn't have his physical done by today, he couldn't come to school. He missed school today. Awesome. I still don't know if it got done or not. And unfortunately, the principal told me "off the record" that if the attendance gets too poor that they can call CPS, but it was unlikely that anything would come of it. She mentioned this without me even bringing up CPS.
The meeting went really well, by the way. We are now on the same page as the teachers and principal as far as working with them at home and things they can look for in the classroom. They were also very open about if we ever needed to email or call them that it wasn't a problem. I am really excited!
