To the Teachers of Obion County.
Mr. Rufus Miller, proprietor of
the Nemo Hotel, Union City, has been
elected Compulsory Attendance Offi
cer of Obion County. Mr. Miller
wishes to co-operate with the teach
ers in 'any and all ways that he can
in getting every child in. the county
in school. ' Report blanks will be
mailed to every teacher in the near
future on which to report children
who are not attending school..
The law is for every boy and girl
between the ages of 8 and 16 years
inclusive to go to school. Hence, a
child comes under the Attendance
Law from the day he is 8 years old
until the day he becomes 17 years
old.
The Attendance Officer is going to
do what the law- enjoins upon him
toward the enforcement of the law.
He is going to see the parents of the
children who are not attending
school. If the parents do not send
their children to school, the At
tendance Officer is going to cite them
before the proper Court as prescribe 1
by law and thereby do all that the
law enjoins upon him toward getting
the children in school. We hope to
have as nearly a 100 per cent enroll
ment this year as it is possible to
have. Very truly,
