More stories from Natalia Ruiz

As the days get colder and the sun comes out later, there are more and more excuses students use to not attend school.

1.Today is just not the day.

Your alarm has been going off for the last half hour and you’ve pressed the snooze button about five times, but you just cannot get yourself out of bed. ¨Mom, I don’t feel good,¨ you say sleepily.

2.  It´s senior ditch day.

Senior ditch days were originally planned so that the seniors could take Monday off after prom weekend or any large school event. As the years went on, and seniors got diagnosed with senioritis, every month has a ditch day. ¨Mom, I don’t feel good. I have senioritis.¨

3. There is a substitute teacher.

Why get out of your cozy bed when your teacher won’t be here today and all of the work is on Google Classroom. It’s like you´re there all along. 

4. Incomplete homework.

Your dog ate your homework that wasn’t done to begin with, and you can’t redo it during your 5th period English class in time for your 6th period Math class. Bummer.

5. Sick.

¨Mom, I´m genuinely sick,¨ you say on the one day you are forced to go to school.

6. Tired.

You procrastinated instead of finishing assignments that were assigned two weeks ago, so now you have three tests, two presentations and one essay to complete for tomorrow, but you would rather procrastinate more and do it tomorrow. ¨Mom, I don’t feel good.”

7. Woke up late.

The classic excuse. When you wake up late, you only have five minutes to get dressed, brush your teeth and make it to the bus. Try again tomorrow. 

8. Friends aren’t going to school.

Your friends aren’t going to school and you don’t want to be a loner at lunch.

9. It’s snowing outside.

You woke up, it’s below zero degrees outside and it’s snowing. There is no way that you´re getting out of your warm, cozy bed. 

10. Doctor’s appointment.

You have a doctors appointment at eight in the morning tomorrow that will only go through first period. Why not go out to eat at Panera and take the day off. ¨Mom, I don’t feel good.¨
