Michael Rossi received the letter pictured above from the Principal of Abington School District in Pennsylvania after a family trip to Boston. Below is the full text of the letter:

“Dear Mr. and Mrs. Rossi,
I understand your family recently took a family vacation. I want you to be aware that the Abington School District does not recognize family trips as an excused absence, regardless of the activities involved in the trip. The school district is not in the position of overseeing family vacations or evaluating the educational nature of a family trip. The dates that your children were absent were recorded as unexcused. An accumulation of unexcused absences can result in a referral to our attendance officer and a subsequent notice of a violation of the compulsory school attendance law."
