thats upto u and ur friend. it does depend on how long he is there for. if it is for a long time, it would definately benefit. if nothing else, some activity classes would do good.

Hi Caithnesslady,

I recommend that your friend (or you) contact the appropriate Canadian department of education to find out their rules and regulations regarding missing school while on holiday.

Here is a listing to help you find their contact info:

Talking to the child's school or teacher in Canada would also be a good idea -- in fact, it may even prevent the phone call to the department of education.

In terms of going to school locally in the U.S., contact your local school district for information about that. You can use SchoolFinder to research their contact information:

If a short-term holiday, it may be that the child can simply make up the missed work and wouldn't need to attend school. But again, please contact officials within the Canadian education system for the most accurate answer to your question on that end.
