Seattle Parade Means Thousands Absent From School

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, WA - Thousands of students in Seattle have apparently skipped school to attend the city's Super Bowl victory parade.
    
On Wednesday, Seattle Public Schools said that more than 25 percent of the district's 51,000 students were absent in the morning. By comparison, about 5 percent were absent the day before.
    
The school district also said 565 teachers were absent, far more than usual. The district says some of those absences were filled with substitutes while others were covered by instructional assistants.
