Got a letter from the principal ::edit in blue::
From what I can assess, it's a generic letter, but was wondering your take on it.
This year, my son has been absent 14 times and tardy 3 times. He had the flu in November so he was out for a week that time, all other days missed were him feeling sick. The tardies are appointments. But the principal just sent home a basic letter of concern to let us know that he shouldn't be missing any more school if we can help it because it will hinder his education. He's in 1st grade.
In May, we were thinking of taking a long weekend and going out of state for vacation. My husband took the time off work but now I'm debating if we should let him miss 1-2 days of school for vacation. Would you take him out of school for a day or two for vacation, or just try to do vacation another time (like summer break)
Edit: We have decided to do a day trip that weekend so we can just go on Saturday and have a long day and then he has Sunday to rest before going back to school
