DS1 is in kindy and missed 7 days for vacation, but it was prearranged and we did an independent study contract so we had all his classwork work done by the day he returned. I believe that they actually marked him as present those days because of the independent study contract.
Other than that, he hasn't missed any school. The rule when I was growing up is that if you're too sick for school, you're too sick to play. Any claims that he doesn't feel well have been immediately rescinded when I remind him that staying home sick means staying in bed all day. No computer, no laptop, no iPad.
Obviously, he would stay home for a fever, diarrhea, vomiting, or anything of that nature.
