We do the same as Joe. They can attend as guests of a student,
but it has to be approved ahead of time, with parental approval
and contact info.
This way we know who everyone is and are able to contact parents
should the need arise, whether or not they are our own students.
It also allows us to make sure the guest hasn't been restricted
from attending school activities for disciplinary reasons at
his/her own school; we know who they are so we can check.
