    1) My son is under a doctor's care and should not take P.E. today. Please execute him.

    2) Please excuse Lisa for being absent. She was sick and I had her shot.

    4) Please excuse Gloria from Jim today. She is administrating.

    6) John has been absent because he had two teeth taken out of his face.

Her sister was also sick, fever and sore throat, her brother had a low grade fever and ached all over. I wasn't the best either, sore throat and fever. There must be something going around, her father even got hot last night.

    22) Please excuse little Jimmy for not being in school yesterday. His father is gone and I could not get him ready because I was in bed with the doctor.

    But think of this -

    in the US, they allow those people to sit on SCHOOL BOARDS, decide the curriculum, hire and fire teachers and principals, and completely control the education system.

    Gosh it makes you understand why the kids are not doing so well when (if parents wrote them) if they cant spell and know how many days in the month.

    Good laugh though.
