Are you allowed to stay home from school on your birthday ?

I am not allowed to stay home on my birthday if it's on a weekday because my Mum/step dad don't think it's a good reason for me to stay home. My Step sister's is in the Summer holidays so no school for her.

My birthday isn't during school - it's in the middle of the summer. However, honestly, I think I'd have just done whatever I felt like doing on the day. My going to school was never exactly enforced.

I'm 20. So if I want to stay home from school on my birthday, I will.

Before I graduated high school, I went to school on my birthday. It never really crossed my mind to stay home because of it.

Once my mom pulled me out of school early on my birthday. But I've never skipped the whole day entirely, except that one time, when there was a snow day haha.

Generally my parents do prohibit me from staying off on my birthday during school for obvious reasons.. however my 18th birthday coming up in January just so happens to be on a federal holiday that is observed by my local school district as a day off. :D

My birthday is at the ninth of January, so I don't think so. And my parents really don't let me stay home, they're very strict.

I'm not allowed to stay home from school unless I'm really really sick.
Recently I've had trouble in school, so they say I must get as many hours of school in as possible.

Hell, I have to run the mile on my birthday, too. I dunno if anyone else's school does this, but our school makes us run four miles throughout the week. I mean, come on, if I didn't sign up to run miles, I don't want to have to.

I wish my parents let me stay home. After all, school is a drag.

Eh, never really thought about staying home on my birthday, but I don't think I'd actually want to. I mean, where's the fun in that, it's not like everyone else would have the day off. I have often stayed home on my birthday due to being sick though, and the last few ones fell on a weekend, so I'm perfectly fine with it :p

I'm in college and get to make my own decisions, but I usually do want to stay home on my birthday since I'd rather relax at home than go to school. But life isn't that convenient so I've been going these last few years. Luckily my next birthday falls on a Saturday. :3

How perfect I spotted this thread, since my birthday is Monday!

But anyway, in high school, I always had off from school on my birthday because it was teachers convention. In college, I haven't had the opportunity to decide yet. Last year it was on a Sunday, and this year I have off because of the hurricane damage to my college.

When I actually get the opportunity to decide for myself, I'll most likely stay home :3

The only time I've ever missed school for something that wasn't important, was Chinese New Years. My parents always made us go to school, even if we were sick. My high school attendance was pretty much perfect besides the times I would be late to classes because I was walking with friends.

My birthday falls on what is considered a public holiday in the part of Australia I live in so yes, I do stay home on my birthday (even though I don't go to school anymore).

Well... answers exactly what I was going to say, same birthday and all. Only once when I had school did I stay home on my birthday, and that's because I had the flu.

Don't you think it's better to go to school and celebrate your birthday with your friends than staying home? Not so sure about people in college and university though, but for a person at a young age, I think going to school on your birthday would be more ideal.

Mine is during the summer anyways, so no need to go to school regardless.

As I post this, It is actually my birthday today... and it falls on a Sunday... so no classes... :3

But it really depends since usually, November 5 is where we go back to school after our sem break... So... it is usually no classes yet... :3

...people stay home for their birthdays?

For school, I would've never thought about asking about it. My parents would've said no. As for now, one of the exciting things about working a job is that I can ask for it off. I've only worked one birthday of the four I've had at my job thus far. 8)
