Parents reprimanded for taking children out of school for family funeral is the headline of an article in the British newspaper, The Telegraph.
Here’s how it begins:
Two parents have received a written warning after their children missed school to attend their grandfather’s funeral.
Andrew and Danielle Overend-Hogg were told that their children, aged nine, five and three, had taken an unauthorised absence.
The letter also threatened that any repeat of the absence could lead to Teagan,nine, Isla, five and Elsie-Mae, three could lose their places at Sheffield’s Handsworth Ballifield Primary School.
