SF schools lose almost $140,000 for Giants Parade-related absences

About 3,500 students skipped class to attend the San Francisco Giants Victory Parade.

San Francisco schools are paying a price for last week's San Francisco Giants Victory Parade.

About 3,500 students played hooky to celebrate the team's victory. That compares with an average daily absentee rate of just over 1,600 so far this year.

The absent students cost the school district an estimated $140,000 in state funding.

It's not as bad, however, as the 2012 parade when about 4,100 kids skipped class and the schools lost $160,000 in attendance money.
