Patrons of the Bancroft public schools are especially urged to see that their children are ready early enough in the morning so that they can reach school when it opens at 9 o'clock sharp. A careful perusal of the last monthly report, to be published next week, will plainly lay before you the present condition of tbings—fifteen tardinesses in one month. The Algona schools tbat have over twice as many pupils have only about one-fifteenth 1 as many cases of tardiness. This low record is caused by about ten or fifteen pupils who are in the habit of being late nearly every morning. The teachers have been doing all in their power to have those pupils prompt, but without the co-operation of parents little can be done. What we ask is that the parents cooperate with us in securing punctuality. There are a few cases that are excusable. Pupils that live two and three miles from the school house cannot always be on time. Such cases will readily be excused, but such pupils are as a rule not often tardy. There are some who live within the town limits that have from five to fifteen tardies against them every mouth. Let parents carefully examine the monthly report cards and if there are more than one or two tardies inquire into the why of it and make an effort to have a clean report the next month. Unless we get your co-operation we shall favor the adoption of regulations that suspend a pupil who is tardy three times in one month and who lives within the town limits. Let us not allow Algona to surpass us in this report but let us all pull together and eclipse her. Respectfully submitted, J. F. DoDEREtt, Principal.
