Hi all, I've got a somewhat disturbing SLS situation that arose in the past couple of days, and would like to know if anyone else has ever experience something like this: DS is attending SLS second session next week. He is in a public school, so his school year doesn't end until the last week in June, and so he is missing a week of school to attend SLS. He worked with his teachers and guidance councilor and housemaster to make sure he does not miss out on any critical work next week, and we thought everything was set. Truthfully, he handled setting up all of that and so I was going on his word that it was "all set", and I believe him when he says he thought it was. (EDIT: I am certainly cognizant of the fact that DS may have dropped the ball somehow here, but he is a very reliable kid, so I would be surprised if that ended up being the case.) Now, on Friday, one of his teachers indicated that she will not accomodate him and that his missing a major exam next week may result in him getting a zero. (EDIT: I should clarify to say this is not 100% definite -- she is "thinkning about how to handle it"... but she said it wasn't fair to the other students if she allowed him to take it later. Just wanted to say that in the spirit of accuracy. ). On top of that, another one of his teachers today indicated she will be loading him up with a week's worth of homework and projects when he leaves on FRIDAY that he is expected to turn in completed when he returns to school a week from Monday. I have scheduled meetings with the two teachers and the guidance councilor tomorrow, but I am astonished that it has come to this. It is not like he is taking the week off to go to Florida on vacation. !!! I should mention that DS did get the reaction of "Why on earth would you want to join the Army?" when he first mentioned the SLS to the first teacher back in March. She seemed to have disdain for the military; I am not sure I want to call her out on that during our meeting, but my son is distraught about this late breaking change in direction, and actually mentioned dropping out of SLS to avoid taking the hit on his grades at this point in his junior year. Has anyone ever run into this kind of thing with regard to SLS? I am fuming right now. .
