For those of you who participated in the poll on my Instagram, thank you. I made everyone aware of my intentions to go after the attendance finals and try to get the policy amended. The Instagram poll turned up that the majority of people are on board with changing policy so it allows a doctor's note to negate the absence. This was started after the TFSD sent out a PSA outlining the procedure if you begin to display symptoms of illness, all revolving around communicable diseases. The jist of it was that if you have any symptoms, stay home. However, if students miss more than 3 days of school, regardless of the reasoning behind the absences, we are required to take attendance finals. Students are basically being punished for: A) doing as the school district has specifically asked and B) actually taking the health of others as well as ourselves into consideration. I decided to end senior year with a bang so help me make it easier for future students. If you support the proposal to amend the attendance final policy to allow for a doctor's note to negate the absence on the final count, please sign the petition.
