A little bit better, Ku. Initially, terrified. But I'm adjusting and dealing as best I can. It took my sister but I think treatments are much better now so I'm really trying to stay positive. But soon, I'll be ready for an umbrella drink..and I want to share it with you.

I don't know about their line-up or starting rotation but their bullpen looks amazing this year. So glad John Farrel came back.

ATTENTION! You go to school. A sniffle or tummy ache isn't worth staying back in school.

My question is, why are you absent so much? That might help us answer your question.

If your bus if arriving at different unpredictable times, someone needs to be fired.

The attendance/absence rules are mandated by the state and unfortunately there is no way to avoid summer school should you not attend the minimum number of days. If this were only a matter of excused vs unexcused absences, you could appeal. Check your student handbook!

Arrive at the bus stop early
An extra 15 min each day would help you avoid summer school
Also talk with someone in the school office to let them know that your bus
Comes at different times
Causing you to miss the bus '

The best you can do is not miss any more school. Do you have any health issues that cause you to be absent? If so, you may want to consider options other then public school. I've missed a lot more school then you, for random health reasons. Fortunately, in middle school, you can still graduate (if it did hold you back, I know a lot of people who would not graduate from coming to school late).

I'm guessing that everyone at your bus stop has the same problem. If not, then it's your responsibility to get there early so you don't miss the bus. Also, an hour is not a long time to walk to school. I used to walk 3 miles to school and it was up hill both ways.

Well my bus usually came at 6:51 but there's been times when the bus comes at 6:43 or even 6:40 I live not very far from the bus stop so I could hear when the bus comes, is just that it sometimes comes early before I even leave my house so I try running to it but I still miss it
Report as
It's best to make an effort to get up earlier and get to the bus stop earlier. I know it's easier said than done, but you have a lot a stake here.

Dont be absent, get the bus schedule, if the bus driver is at fault speak to the principle or the school superintendent have your parents along with you. Really there is no excuse not waiting for the bus, if the driver is late speak to the school.

Man up. Quit making lame excuses. Quit missing the bus and get to school. You think your whining and crying will fly when you get in the real world and get a job? It won't. Learn to be a man now, learn to be responsible

Make sure to get the bus schedule and learn it, be there even if you need to wait an hour for the bus, your education is worth it.
