Courtney asked in Beauty & StyleMakeup · 1 decade ago


'm 13 years old. I go to a new school, and I have many stresses.

I have been absent about 8 days, in total from school. (I started school in September.) Now, two of my teachers said, after I asked them if its okay they're like "You're cutting it pretty close, but try nto to miss any more days of school." I missed so much because I've been REALLY sick.And I asked the counselar and all that, I asked him "What's the limit on how many days you can be absent?" He like "There really isn't a limit, just don't miss too many. Obviously, if you miss too many days we're going to have to send you a letter through the mail, but if you're just missing school to sleep in" and I cut him off when he said that, I'm like "Oh no, my mom would NEVER let me do that" He's like "I know she wouldn't, but if you're missing school because you really are sick, then there is really nothing we can do." I'm like, so I won't miss any more days, he's like "Don't worry, try not to miss any more days.u should be fine


I'm in eighth grade.

Also, what's going to happen?

I told my counser, "I won't miss any more days, I don't want a letter through the mail" He's like "Has this happened to you before?" "I'm like only in second grade, because I had the flu, I was really sick". He's like ok.

What's going to happen? It's okay right?!

PLEASE HELP ME! The school isn't going to fail me or anything right? (I do all the work!)

They're not going to fail me are they? ANything bad going to happen? I WON'T miss any more days.

PLEASE HELP ME! I'm the kind of girl that worries TOO MUCH!

    I "took off" a whole year in high school and still graduated on time and with my class. Don't sweat the small stuff, 8 days is nothing. I missed 150 out of the 180 day school year. Cheer up, don't stress, you are took young for that.

    Okay girl, calm down! Your school will not fail you! They're probably just trying to threaten you to ensure you won't miss any more classes. I've missed like 15 days in a school yeah before and I passed with good grades. As long as your absences are legit they can't fail you.

    if you're sick, then go see a doctor. i wouldnt worry about missing too many days if you're completing the work---id worry about the health issue. if it's caused by stress, go see a therapist (it doesnt hurt--no one is perfect). talk to your parents or your old friends about the move that you made, and talk to a couple of the people in your school about what their is to do around town. im sure youll make it through this---moving is hard, and you just have get used to the change.

    good luck, hun.

    I dont believe that the school will hold you back. I mean there are kids who dont even speak any english that are graduating. The only grades that count are your four years of high school before college. It is only practice up to the eighth grade.

    Ask your teachers for an extension on all homework assignments and projects. Talk to them in person, preferable with your mom or dad, and tell them whats been going on. They should be able to give you an extension on your assignments. I hope all works well for you

    you're complaing way too much....just wait until you;re a junior in high school, even if you don't miss a day, you'll die, harder than missing a semester in middle school by a million times. just deal with it, you'll be more prepared for HS torture.
