Wednesday Wonders: Playing Hooky

Here’s a quick, gratifying story shared by Track A parent Jeannett Gibson. Jeannett and her husband Andy are in their third year at SLOCA and have 3 of their 4 children enrolled: Henry (LMS), Lucy (Intermediate), and Owen (Kindergarten). Their daughter Jill is a third grader at Ocean View Elementary:

I had to pick up Henry midday to head to a doctor appointment, and it meant I had to pull him out of Core class about a half hour before it ended.  As we walked through the parking lot, I made a comment like,

“Look at you, playing hooky!" 

“What's that?" 

“It means you're cutting class.” 

“Yeah, it's sad.  Couldn't you schedule my appointment during lunch so I didn't miss any class time?!" 


Okay then.  

Isn’t this great? Chances are, many of our SLOCA parents have heard similar requests. We love that our kids love school!
