I usually don't, but I voted "yes" because I have.  Sometimes it just works out that way.  I have never pulled my son out during a buys part of the year though...  It's usually right before Thanksgiving or during field trips or things like that.

 I would have said NO, except for one instance.  My brother got married a little more than a year ago in another state that is nearly 1,000 miles away.  My boys were in the wedding party, so they had to be there for the rehearsal late Friday afternoon.  There was no way around them missing some school.  We got the work that they were going to miss and they had it all completed upon their return to school.

We haven't in a couple yrs but this yr we are going to because it's the time hubby can get off work.  It isn't til May anyway so they aren't doing much then.

No we schedule around school. The main reason is that the district is EXTREMELY strict and I. Order to miss just three consecutive days with an unexcused absence you have to jump through all kinds of hoops! That being said there is a possibility the district will be making up three snow days during spring break and we have paid for our vacation already so we will be jumping through said hoops if need be this year!

 not normally.. but in September we will be.. they will miss 4 days at he end of the month.. Jordan will be in 2nd grade and Caden will be in PreK. we are taking them to Disney World and it is the only week that we are able to do it.. we went back and forth about it, but decided to just do it. the school is good about family vacations, he is in the gifted program so he doesnt struggle in school at all and never misses school for anything expect if hes occasionally gotten sick. so we are doing it.
