So tomorrow , my DH and I plan to take our children on a 3 day weekend vacation and they will miss tomorrow's school day. Shall I tell the teachers and get their homework ahead of time? Or just call them in sick?

If they typically have a lot of homework over the weekend, get it ahead of time.  If not, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I write a note the day before in their planner if I know they will be out of school the next day. If they have homework, the teacher sends it home with them that day.

Also why are you calling them in sick? They aren't 'technically' sick just say you are taking a 3 day vacation...ya'know, the truth?  :P

A missing day here is a lot of work.

I always let my sons teacher know he isn't coming in . ( by email )We communicate often though.
Do your kids usually have homework on the weekends ? If so I would get it and have them work on it during the weekend somehow. Or maybe when you get home on Sunday . But that's me. Do whatever you think is best for your kids.

I never put a reason WHY my kids missed or will be missing school.  I simply say Johnny will be out tomorrow 4-4-14, or Johnny was out yesterday 4-2-14.   Nothing more.
