For those of you that take your children out of school for a Cruise (or any vacation for that matter), do you normally send a note (or email) to your childs teachers? If so, what do you normally say in said note? We will be taking DD11 out of school for 2 1/2 days (picking up from school at around noon on a Wednesday) for our upcoming 2 Days in Disney and then DCL (she has the following week off from school, Fall Break). We don't normally take her out of school for that long, usually just for a half day on a Friday, but this time she will be out for 2 and a half days. We want to be sure that her teachers know why ... what should we tell them?
