This Dad's Response To School's Question About Son's Absence Quickly Went Viral (PHOTOS)

Simon and Claire Morgan decided to take their son James out of school on March 3rd for a last-minute family vacation, but “forgot” to notify the school.

The business owner was eventually texted by Stanwell School in South Wales, asking: "James Morgan was absent from AM registration. Please can you TEXT a reply with the reason for this absence. Thanks Stanwell School."

Simon Morgan decided to have some fun and replied with a picture of 15-year-old James posing in front of Dubai's iconic hotel the Burj Al'arab.

Simon Morgan Known As "Coolest Dad" At School

The senior Morgan has poked fun at the school so many times he has come to be known as the 'coolest dad at school'.

For example, James was late into class one morning, so Simon said he would keep the boy in a cardboard box outside the school and feed him gruel to make sure he was not late again

About this prank, Simon commented: "We only found out about the holiday the day before as it was through the travel agency that we run, so we genuinely didn't have time to plan. I know I should have told the school beforehand, but if you ask on things like this unfortunately they often say they don't approve of it, so I took a gamble. They didn't reply to the text so I think it paid off."

Simon continued: "James is doing very well, is on target for excellent GCSE results and misses very few days so I knew it was not going to negatively affect his work. When I got the message I decided to send the picture because I think a picture tells a thousand words. I think from the photo it was then quite apparent where he was."
