This week, SSs' school started keeping track of "attendance" for remote learning. Students are marked present if they correspond with their teachers and hand in all assignments. They are marked tardy if they correspond with their teachers, but don't hand in all assignments. They are marked absent if they make no contact with their teachers. They receive one mark for the entire week.
This week - drumroll please - both SSs were marked absent in all classes. This is despite BM's claims that she is exhausting herself making sure they keep up with their school work and both SSs telling DH that they are doing what they need to do with their school work.
Both were "below grade level" in reading and math before all this, so good luck to them in high school next year. My only wish is that they graduate on time, because standard CS ends when they turn 18 or graduate from high school...
