I actually have had this a couple of times. I always write off as an
accident and absorb the cost. It usually isn't enough to really off-set my
budget to replace the book. If parents are aware (I sent a letter to the
parent the first time whom I have known for a few years), she replaced the
book with no problem.

I think either way you handle it is acceptable.
