Question: Every so often one of my children will forget a lunch, assignment or permission slip. I find myself dashing off to bring the forgotten item to school. Is this the right way to handle occasional forgetfulness? — Forgotten
Answer: At some schools, this is a moot issue, as they do not accept items for dropoff. When this is true, parents and students need to be aware of the policy. On the other hand, there is no solid agreement on whether forgotten items should be brought to school or not.
