Negotiating a shorter school year in a US public elementary school
Be aware that many school districts have laws enacted detailing the length of the school year and the maximum number of miss-able days (which means minimum number of attendance days). Some schools are paid by the state for attendance-days, and the school itself may not have much flexibility if you hit such limits. That said, there are plenty of opportunities to schedule around three day weekends and various holidays. Just don't trim your days too close to the wire. When your child eventually does get sick, you want a buffer.
How should I wake up my 4 year old?
Congratulations on the "no thank you!" She might not like getting up at the moment, but she certainly has learned a few manners.
