My oldest will be starting Kindergarten in Sept. I was just going over the "days off" schedule for the coming school year and realized that NONE of MY religious holidays are day's off unless they happen to fall on a weekend. Now, we have an inter-religious home, my children aren't really taught any of the religious meanings to the days BUT, they still participate. Now the school year is set up around Christian religious days (as is normal here) and that's fine with me. But while they give them the week following Christmas off, they don't have Solstice/Yule off at all.
Now, here's my question, how does everyone feel about keeping my child/ren home from school on days which we celebrate holidays if they aren't given them off by the school? Would that be inappropriate and is it legal (since you are supposed to have doctors notes for days missed)? Would you or do you keep your children home for religious days which they are scheduled to go to school on?

I don't see a problem with it.
You need a doctors note when they are sick?
