My DS's preschool has arranged a day outing next term. The notice says that if school aged siblings go along, then the preschool wants to see proof that the sibling's school has given permission for that child to miss school that day.
Surely it is none of their business whether that parent has permission for their child to be out of school? Or is there a type of blanket authority that all schools have to check up on attendance / truancy?
It does not affect me, but this has been bothering me for a while now.
