SB 1152 provides another “excused absence” for certain students. It applies to those who are 17 or older. They can get up to four days of excused absence for the purpose of enlisting in the U.S. armed forces, or the Texas National Guard.
I just “googled” the following question: “How long does it take to enlist in the army?” The answer I got: one to two days. So I guess if you live in Notclosetoanything, Texas, you might need to tack on a day of travel on each end. So you would need four days out of school.
What did we do before Google???
DAWG BONE: IF YOU ARE HEADED OFF TO THE SERVICE, MAYBE YOU WON’T EVEN CARE IF IT’S “EXCUSED.”
Tomorrow: A to F….
