There will be no minimum amount of days to “pass” a grade, nor punishments for absences. Sometimes kids need time away from school, for whatever reason, whether it’s a sick day, or just feeling off. Family vacations can be an incredibly enriching experience for children, and often one will learn much more with the family in a new place (especially without the weight of past-due assignments and whatnot hanging over his or her head), than whatever would be taught in that time in school (and they’ll most likely share what they experienced with their peers as well, which will lead to even more exploring and learning).
