Hi there. May I ask where District 81 gets the idea that they can just have my children make up days from that windstorm a while back? I think it's quite unfair, given that it was an emergency event. I heard that you have had some makeup days throughout the year, but this wasn't just a simple snow day, it was a massive windstorm that left many in bad places.
Is there a district-wide policy on visitors to school campuses? If so, does it restrict the age of the visitor(s)? In other words, can a high-school-aged student walk into the office of say, an elementary school, and obtain a visitor's pass to take a child to something like an appointment? (assuming the high-school student is on the approved pick-up list)
Why change your policy regarding how to determine validictorian?? Realize HS's struggle to prepare kids for college. By changing this, are you not lowering the bar of expectation and achievements? Colleges most certainly dont cater to students in that aspects - its very competitive. Understand you want kids to succeed, but it this not making it easier and almost doing kids a disservice?
I wonder if Spokane School District respects it's employees and volunteers right to a private life, separate from their involvement from the school? Are the adults who work with the school district required to get approval for any alcohol consumption and prescription drug use that they partake in? I have reviewed the previous questions and noticed that concerns about adults using cannabis are to be directed to the principal and would like confirmation that the process is the same for all substances to which access is limited by age or prescription.
Is it a district-wide policy to NOT allow a child to call home unless he/she has a fever? I specifically asked the office personnel at my childs school about this. I was told the school has to have a note from a doctor before they will allow a child to call home when the child does not have a fever.
Can this be correct?!?!
I would like you to reevaluate the position of exclusion in the public school system due to the mumps outbreak. As you can see in the numbers the vaccinated kids are just as at risk as the non vaccinated. There are so many reasons why you shouldn't keep kids out of school for this . It is the parents choice to expose the child not you. There is no regulating after school contact and this crisis will not be fixed by keeping non vaccinated kids from school. This issue should be taken up with the manufacturer of this vaccine. Please allow kids back to school before irreversible damage to their studies, education and their future!
What is the policy on turning in homework late for;
1) If you are absent and turn it in the next day, or
2) Turn it in late while in attendance.
My child was excused and turned in her homework when she returned.
She was given a maximum score of 70% since it was late, even though she was excused.
If this is not policy, I plan on taking further action and making it public.
KHQ has agreed already to a story.
