I want to take my children on a vacation.  This is a vacation my daughter has wanted to take for a very long time that I have been unable to afford before now.  My husbands job is very picky about the days he can take off. Out of my options i had  I chose the week that includes Memorial Day.  This is after my daughter will finish all of her finals in school.  She will miss 3 actual days of class. This will be our very first family vacation and due to my serious health issues this could very well be our last as a family.   There is a good chance I will not be here in a year to try again. Also she has good attendance.

I have informed the school she will miss a few days and the counselor gave me attitude about it.

I have never allowed schools to dictate how I raise my children.  
How old is this child?

My kids missed the first 3 days of school this year because we were still on vacation. Just go and ask for independent study if possible.

I would go. Screw the counsler. As long as she gets her finals done I don't see the harm. Have fun on your vacation!

I would do it in the middle of the year if grades were good, at the end is no big deal. In the grand scheme of life 3 days of no school won't kill anyone,

I would.

No school is ever going to tell me otherwise.

If my boys were all finished with exams why not?
