I'm a middle school teacher, and if a child is not struggling with school, there is no problem with them taking a vacation with their family. I think that kids learn so much when they travel. I do appreciate when the parents give me a heads up, so I can prepare work for their child, and give them any background information or help they might need to complete the assignments.

Family time will ALWAYS be more important than school. Yes, education is important, but your little one is not going to miss anything in that week that will cripple them her life. They're learning simple math, science, history, English. It's not like they're studying nuclear physics.

You're a former teacher. I have full faith that you can catch her up on her lessons!

I am also the daughter of a teacher (who did the SAHM thing until I was in 4th grade). I graduated in the top 10 of my class. I missed at least 1 week of school annually for vacation.

And you know what- the memories I have with my parents of family vacations will always be with me. Besides, she's going to learn that in 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue every year between now and 12th grade That's the one thing you can count on... history will repeat itself EVERY year from now until graduation. She will be an expert on US History from discovery through the Civil War.

We did week and half at Halloween. Communications with teachers is key. Check for any test well ahead of time as well as homework. Life is short with family education is a life long endeavour.
