Green Bank Schools
It is true that through necessity, pupils are sometimes absent. Occasionally it may be necessary for students to be absent because of work at home. We have learned from personal experience that such absences may be prevented by the work being done before and after school and on Saturday. We saw a boy on his bicycle at 4 p.m. Thursday. He had been absent but said he was ill in the forenoon, but recovered sufficiently to ride his bicycle in the afternoon. What is the obligation of the parent in this case?
