Go to another class. When I was in 4th grade I forgot to get a permission slip signed and spent the day in another classroom.

No, it wouldn't bug me. Your DD didn't want to go and you decided she could stay home and the school is fine with that. It would bug me more if they hassled me about keeping her home and said she had to come and sit in the principal's office or something if she didn't go.

 

I can see your point of worrying that some families can't pay. But you know, you just will drive yourself crazy wondering about things like that. The school might have a fund to help out students who need help but don't publicize it to families who don't. That is what our school does...if a student needs help, the principal and teacher will work something out (payment plan, reduced pay amount, etc) but I don't think they would tell other parents about this.
