    Hello everyone!
    So basically, I am going on holiday to America in March and I will be missing 3 days from school, and my school counted it as an unauthorized absence ( I already asked my school) and I am going to miss 3 days because I am going to go to my cousin's wedding and also I am going because my grandma is very ill and I would like to spend more time with her. I havent seen my grandma for three years and I am currently in year 10 and I wanted to ask what's the chances that my parents will be fined for me to go on holiday?

    Fines are given out at the discretion of the school. Some schools choose to fine a lot, some don't. We can't really help you on this one. You're better off explaining to them the reasons you are going and see if they will let it pass this time.

    Wait so did you get a fine first?
    But then did you explain it to them after
    because I just realized i didn't write a reason in the letter so should i like that a picture of me with my grandma or something because my grandma's sitting in a wheelchair I think that will be clear enough to see that she's ill so i can use that picture in case i need it like after if i get a fine?

    My attendance has been like 100% this year and last year it was above 96% so if they look at attendance isn't my attendance good enough? like 100% and im only taking three days off for the whole school year? coz im pretty sure im not missing a day school for the rest of the year?

    It's just up to your school. I'd imagine most places would see you have 100% attendance and understand about your family situation and so agree to the trip, however, some won't.
