Two girls at Barrington High School face charges of truancy filed by Barrington police.
The two girls have missed almost 300 classes combined this year, according to police. Their absences were reported to the police last Friday, Dec. 16, by Nicole Varrone, assistant principal at the high school.
Barrington police file all truancy petitions to Family Court, said Police Chief John LaCross. The girls can expect to face a hearing and to undergo counseling, he said.
