Do you know how many days your child is able to miss school without getting a warning and being held back? My child has missed 9 days so far - today she has a bad cold and is coughing and crying so I have to keep her home. 9 days seems excessive to me and I'm scared they will call me and threaten to hold her back. She is in 1st grade. I looked up the school policy online and they are vague -- they don't specify the number of absences before being held back. What is your school policy? (She is a good student and at the top of class in reading, so I feel like she is still keeping up. Not that I think it matters if the policy is a certain number of days per year.) Thanks!
