Using the "Holidays" option located under the "Account" menu in the upper right corner you can add visual reminders of days off from school. Use this feature to:
- Add holidays/vacation days to the entire school (every student's calendar will show the holiday)
- Remember doctor's appointments or family visits
- Schedule a realistic school load on appointment days (assignments can still be entered on holidays)
One final thought: Homeschool Manager counts attendance for every day you enter an assignment and mark it complete. Holidays do not affect attendance at all- they are visual reminders only! If you enter an assignment on a holiday, you still receive attendance credit for that day.
Keep in mind that Holidays must be entered one day at a time. For long vacations (ex: Christmas Break), consider entering the first and last day as visual markers to save yourself entering 15 days off.
