Also, these absences will be treated as an unexcused absence. In accordance with Chancellors Regulations, this is considered an "Unlawful Absence" due to the fact that vacations taken when school is in session are not an "excused absence". Teachers are not obligated to make prior arrangements for assignments, projects and other instructional activities involving work that has not yet been presented. You should also be aware that teachers cannot be expected to extend their normal workday to provide catch up work or to administer missed exams for students that have been on vacation, nor shall teachers be required to repeat lessons that were given during the vacation period. Please keep this in mind when planning your next family vacation.
