Attendance Exceptions During W.W. II

CRA 1-3

During World War II, the Government of Ontario issued an exception for attendance at schools.  Students who worked on farms were allowed to begin school in October, instead of September.  The students were commended for their work during the war and their contribution to the war effort.  The difficult part for those helpful students would be getting caught up on missed work when they returned to school.

That kind of exception must be difficult for modern students to fathom.  Provincial attendance exceptions never occur.
