Check School Policy

Before you start to plan your holiday travel, make sure you're clear on the school's policy regarding absences. You can usually find it on the school district website, otherwise you may need to call and ask. Usually there are a set number of excusable absences allowed each year. If your holiday will be longer than that or you've already used up some absences, you may need special permission from the administration to take your little learner out of school again.
