In the overclass snoburbs, high school kids do not miss class unless they are under anesthesia or a CDC quarantine.
Today, I sent an email to my child's AP Biology teacher to say he was feeling too ill to go to school. Would she please tell me what work, if any, he has to make up today from home? Her response:
My friend texted me one day last week. Her son had left his backpack
at our house and she wanted to pick it up right away. He was worrying
about getting his homework finished. He was in
the hospital, just coming out of painful surgery, in the recovery room.
