You judged too quickly, OP. Next time, at least try to verify with the parents before rejecting something based on spelling errors and what not. English is not everyone's first language.

#11. The only time you use an apostrophe to make a plural is with letters and numbers. A's, B's, C's. 1's, 2's, 3's. Etc. Although, if you are trying to say an age (E.G. Saying someone is in their thirties) you don't use an apostrophe. E.G. The man is in his 30s. #5 is using an apostrophe to mark the genitive case. You use an 's at the end of a word that does not have an s already. E.G. The car's yellow door. You use an apostrophe on its own in cases where there is an s already. E.G. James' book.

#20 Even if it's a possession it would still be classes but this may just be my British English grammar talking as we were taught the plural for class is classes.

Haha, I knew someone would try to "correct" that. Try looking stuff up before making yourselves look like idiots, #10, #19 and #26. Or take a remedial English class.

Oops I must've been distracted while writing that.. I just reread it over and realized my mistake immediately. What I was trying to say was pretty much what #21 said haha oh well

Who gives a fuck to whom. If you're not sure whether it's "who" (subjective pronoun) or "whom" (objective pronoun), replace who/whom in your sentence with she/her, and see which one fits.

What kind of teacher wants to bother parents for every single note that comes there way? If it looked obviously fake to the teacher then that should be good enough or the parent should feel like doing better next time. Not that hard to properly write an excuse note (grammatically especially).

Some people just aren't very good at spelling/Grammar lol. My father is very educated and intelligent. He's a businessman, but English isn't his strong point. He speaks well and has a great vocabulary, but writing is his forte lol.

As a teacher, I can promise you that kids take chances the whole damn time. If you had to verify each and every little note, you would have no time left to teach. You start to develop what I privately like to refer to as a "bullshit radar". Sometimes it's a bit off, as in OP's case. But mostly it's not. You learn all the tricks. I would in all honesty have made the same mistake as OP (depending on the handwriting, of course. That's often a dead giveaway).

Amen, my Aunts an elementary school teacher and if I had to count all the times she's told me about situations like that with the kids or heck even the times the parents just are illiterate we'd be here until after Christmas.

That is completely true but honestly if a kid comes with a note looking that bad 99% of the time, it is probably the kid. But like you said, its good to confirm anyways.

Something similar almost happened to me when I was about 14 because my mum had to write me a note really quickly before she left for work, and the only pen she could find had bright orange ink. She still wrote the note, but when she got to work she called the school office to apologise for the day-glo note, and explained the situation so they could tell my teacher that the note was legit. If you can't write a note that actually looks like it was written by an adult, a phone call only takes a few minutes.

My teacher's if they thought a note was a fake always sent it to the office so the secretaries could call and verify it's contents. Plus, with PE you have to be careful in case the child is injured.

You know in IL you needed PE to graduate high school. It's a state mandate. Unless you were paralyzed or wheelchair bound/out for a temporary medical reason you could do a lighter version of PE, or if shorts and tees where against your religion you did the lighter version of PE. But they made you if you could at all because the state required it! I would have called the father to confirm it. I work with adults that sound like they need to go back to grammar school, so I wouldn't be surprised if he was one.
