Since the start of semester two I've been to school about 4 times in a possible 10. This previous week we only had school on Tuesday and Thursday. The plows are on strike and every time it snows, we get the day off, it's actually getting ridiculous.
I'm getting to the point where I go every other day for 4 periods then leave. Like today I didn't have early release but I asked my teacher if we were doing anything important in the afternoon and she said no so I said alright you don't mind if I go skiing then and she said no. Our attendance lady is awesome too. She'll tell you if your note is legit or not and whenever I come in late I just tell her I slept in and she marks me as late excused meaning no detentions.
Senior Year I missed 29 days of school illegally. Late 53, which usually consisted of me missing half the day and then meandering in. YET, I still maintained a Gpa over 85 all year, and had a semi challenging schedule.
Illegally meaning a non snow day ect. I had the ins with the attendance ladies, who accepted any bs note which they knew I wrote everytime. I somehow never got in any sort of trouble besides a few lunch detentions from the lates in the beginning of the year (1 for every 3 times late).
Incredible the things that happen when you treat people (state waged mind you) nice.
