Our school has made it a policy, and it is in the Teachers Handbook,
that the "specials" are required classes just like reading, math, etc.
If a student is to miss that class both teachers must agree ahead of
time. This also means that I cannot send a student back to class...
but if needed, I can send them to the office.
Every once in a while someone forgets about this, and it is great to
have it in the handbook and have the support of the principal.
