The routine is familiar: when a student is late or absent from school, a letter from the parents must be supplied for the absence to be excused. Sometimes such letters suggest that the parents were excused from school too many times in their own youth. "My son is under a doctor’s care and should not take P.E. today. Please execute him.""Please excuse Lisa for being absent. She was sick, and I had her shot.""Dear School: Please ekscuse John being absent on Jan. 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, and also 33.""Please excuse Roland from P.E. for a few days. Yesterday he fell out of a tree and misplaced his hip.""Please excuse Tommy for being absent yesterday. He had diarrhea, and his boots leak.""Please excuse Jimmy for being. It was his father’s fault.""Please excuse Jennifer for missing school yesterday. We forgot to get the Sunday paper off the porch, and when we found it Monday, we thought it was Sunday.""Sally won’t be in school a week from Friday. We have to attend her funeral.""My daughter was absent yesterday because she was tired. She spent a weekend with the Marines.""Please excuse Jason for being absent yesterday. He had a cold and could not breed well.""Please excuse Burma, she has been sick and under the doctor.""Maryann was absent December 11-16, because she had a fever, sore throat, headache, and upset stomach. 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."
