My daughter received a B+, her only non-A in HS, when she left on the team bus to play for the state girl's soccer final. She had cleared it in advance with the teacher, who either forgot or changed his mind, and gave her a 0 for either a classroom assignment or pop quiz. That final B+ dropped her from class valedictorian. We did not intervene or speak to the teacher. She learned that there are some adults who can be petty, vindictive, etc. Life lessons can be more important than book lessons.
She's now a senior in an engineering program and that B+ is still the only non-A she has ever received.
Hmmm, My daughter went to regional playoffs and let the teacher know ahead of time but when she got her report card it said she was absent for the day. We told her to talk to the teacher and explain what happened. She did and the absent was removed.
When in doubt talk to the teacher, most are willing to help. And kept records it helps.
And Megan Thode, its more to this story. An, O what she do sleep the entire class...............
Yes, there is likely more to the Thode story.
