DS is 9, in 4th grade. He had a bad day last week, repeated lows that required several trips to the school nurse. During one of his nurse visits, his teacher collected a large math packet that was due; she collects some of the homework in the beginning of the day; other assignments are collected at different times apparently. When all his assignments/tests/HW were returned in his Friday folder, he had a 60 on the math packet; she took off 25 points for being late (he handed it in the next morning). If he gets anything below an 85, he is removed from advanced math, so I wrote her and asked her to please reconsider the -25 points. Thankfully she did, but I wonder if I should put specific language in his 504 for next year regarding late assignments. Do I need to explain that repeated lows can cause "brain fog"? This was her response: "Thank you for the letter about Aidan’s work. Of course I will rescind the -25 however, Aidan did not acknowledge that when I requested the work from him the next day. As you noted he was at the nurse 6 times that day, so we had a discussion about him being aware of what he is missing when he returns." Do you have any language in 504 along these lines? Thank you for any input you can provide.
