12. No, thanks.
I generally know when my 7th & 8th grade students are skipping school. In almost every case, they are doing so with their parent's permission. When the parents DIDN'T sanction it, they cry, "I don't know what to do. He won't listen to me. I can't keep track of her." They DON'T arrange for adult supervision when they aren't there to supervise themselves.

Of course, I work in a very small community, where everyone knows what everyone else is up to. If I have any doubts, all I have to do is ask the students in the room "Where's Johnny today?" They will cheerfully volunteer the information.
