Apparently, a lot of kids came down with Giants fever on victory parade day.

The San Francisco Unified School District says thousands of kids played hooky last Wednesday presumably, to attend the Giants World Series Parade.

More than 4,100 students were absent that day costing the district nearly $160,000 in California funding. The state pays about $38 each day a student shows up for school.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the majority of school-skippers were high school students.
