Also think about how they will fair doing work while you are away if teachers give it to you prior to your leaving. We usually go in the summer. Since the age of 10 or 11 my daughter said it wouldn't be much of a vacation if she had to take work with her. And having extra work when she got back wouldn't be worth it. She missed 3 days with strep once and told me that makeup work felt like she was being punished for being sick. She said she'd just rather go when school is out.
