On November 27th Jamie had a sick day off college that he attends once a week as part of his exams. DH called the college to let them know.
In the christmas holidays i received a letter from his school form tutor telling me that he had an unexplained absence from school on that day and the matter was now urgent. i don't know why it was now urgent, they hadn't written to me about it before.
So he went back to school on Monday and Tuesday. Admittedly i forgot to give him the letter i have written explaining to his tutor that as it was a Friday he wouldn't have been in school anyway, and that he'd been sick that day.
Today i received a pile of post, the first since the snow started and amongst the pile was a letter from the assistant head explaining stating "we have written to you previously requesting reasons for Jamies absence" and telling me they have passed details over to Education Welfare Authority!!
I am absolutely spitting mad. How dare they! I even tried to call them on Thursday to explain i'd forgotten to send the letter in but got their answering service!
Sorry I just had to rant. I cannot *believe* they have sent me these letters when the college was informed of his sickness in the first place!
Just wait 'til monday morning comes round....
