November and December are big months for families to travel, vacation and spend cozy stay-at-home days with loved ones; our teachers included! While we realize travel won’t look the same as in previous years, we recognize the holiday months are still likely to result in reduced attendance.
This year, as part of our ongoing work to continually improve the climate and culture for our staff and students, we’d like to grant as many teachers time off as possible in November and December and are therefore piloting a holiday vacation credit option! For the months of November and December, families that notify us at least two weeks in advance of their child’s planned absence will receive a credit on their next month’s account for the prorated amount of the missed day(s). Absences with less than two weeks notice follow our standard absence policy, and no credit will be issued.
If you know your child will be absent on a regularly scheduled day in the month of November or December 2020, please notify the school via BrightWheel or by email at Director(at)CobbSchool.org. We hope this pilot offering will be of great benefit to our families AND our hard working staff!
