Students missing instructional time as a result of family vacations

It is a family decision to take their child(ren) out of school for a vacation or other reason during instructional time.
However, it is the child’s responsibility to catch up on work when she / he returns.
It is not our expectation that teachers provide this work prior to students missing instructional time.
If there are extenuating circumstances, please contact the school and arrangements will be made to provide necessary work.
