How do I let my child's school know that I am pulling him out as of today and will be homeschooling. I live in Missouri.

I think most times you have to have approval from whatever department, in your state, that handles non-piblic education before you can pull your child out of public school and homeschool. I know I did. But here, it was relatively quick, like less than 24 hours to get approval.

In most states there is no approval process, only a notification process.

You are right, I used the wrong word. I had to send in my Notice of Intent and then they basically e mailed me back stating they received my notice and I was legally able to homeschool from that point. Sorry.

You simply give them a letter of intent to homeschool.  You don't need to give them a notice.  You don't need their approval.  Don't let them tell you otherwise.  =)

Let him sleep in, and then take the day off to do a fun field trip! 

I can imagine that not being a nice surprise for a kid.  Or if he has friends, give him time to say goodbye to them.
