I'm sure by this point you've seen this little gem. I have verified with Archie Comcis that it is indeed true and not Photoshopped.
Look at the following panel:
Veronica and Betty skip school, making sure to fool the teacher first:
Ah, for the days when thought and care was put into deceiving the teacher. So much more respectable than just logging in and walking away.
The kids even have detention rooms in their house (their closets) in case they get into trouble!
You may see a similar panel but with the year 2104 AD on it. That was in a reprint in 2015. I guess the publishers wanted to to still feel futuristic! The comic originally ran in February of 1997 in Betty #46. If you want to read the whole thing, Archie Comics has you covered on their website! Read it here!
