Should this letter been sent home?

recently my parents got a letter from my math teacher saying how my grades suck because of attendence, not doing work, not staying after, and lack of effort. I check our schools online grade books the attendence issue was due to a death in the family and taking a regents. the lack of work was because I didn't completely complete a homework assignment, just one. I've stayed after for help couple of times especially before tests and for some assignments. out of 13 grades I had only 4 really bad grades. lack of effort is sometimes because again this is math. so do you think the note was necessary?

Yes the note is necessary. I realize that math isn't your forte, but 4 out of 13 is approximately 1/3 of your grade, that is a significant amount. As you said there was a death in the family and your parents can address with the teacher, but at the same time since your parents are no aware you are having a problem they can now help you. That is the point of the letter. It is so you get the help you need at home. It isn't to get you into trouble.

I don't think that note was necessary but I do think you should show it to your parents and talk to them about it.

Yes just because your teacher is trying to bring awareness about your grades and wants you to pass she doesn't know why your absent maybe but talk with your parents about it
