Policies are great, but I like Larry Browns old adage of, "
...having a few rules...but a helluva lotta suggesstions."
I feel pretty strongly that whatever policies are put into place
that they should be consistent with those in place for other
co-curricular activities such as band, cheerleading, debate, drama,
Remember that kids might miss class for doctors, dentists, or
physical therapy appointments, field trips, funerals, or visiting
Aunt Dottie in the hospital. Where do you draw the line?
