Each school year, every student receives 3 Local Discretionary Days.  These days are meant to be used for special family events, including vacations/trips, and are considered excused absences.  The LD form needs to be filled out and sent to at least one week prior to the expected absence for approval.  Here is the fillable form Local Discretionary Form (Rev.
