Do kids get a break if they have a doctor's note?
My daughter has a 4.7 GPA. She has missed 15+ days of school, and been sent home numerous times..... The reason is she gets about 10 migraines a month that last a few hours to 6 days ( we had to hospitalize her once to break the headache ).
She is an incredibly hard worker, and her teachers love her.
I told her not to expect the same considerations for her medical issues when she gets to college.... but maybe some professors would be understanding?
