After a student had missed a couple of days, I decided to do a little investigating.
Students 1: Miss, I heard that B is not coming to school because she does not have hair spray.
Me: Well, that sounds like a serious problem.
Me: Call home and speak with the guardian to confirm that the reason why B did not come to school was because of the lack of hairspray. My fear is confirmed student is missing school because a can ran out!
Student who missed school: Miss, you know my ... made up that lie about why I did not come to school.
Me: ...needs to come up with a better lie next time!
The hairspray issue has been resolved and B has come to school everyday!
