Anyway I'd really like to book a cruise for Oct. 2014. Will missing 3 days of school make a huge impact? It's been a long time since I was in school, lol.
I haven't read through all the posts but as an educator I can say that a few days of kindergarten missed will not harm your child ( I do it myself with my kids). The caveat for me is whether your child is on grade level or not. If they are below grade level, I would not do it.

The other factor you have to consider is what your district's policy is. Some public school policies have become crazy strict because of the ADA (Average Daily Attendance) which is how many schools are funded. So check to make sure that your school district won't have a truant officer after you or that you won't receive a nasty letter.

Other than that, have fun and enjoy your vacation.....
