Parent Tip

Did you know there is a law called the Family-School Partnership Act that allows parents to participate in their children’s school or child care activities? The law says if you work for a business with 25 or more employees at the same location, you may take off up to 40 hours each year (up to eight hours in any calendar month) to participate in school or child care activities. The law allows you to use vacation, personal leave, or compensatory time for this purpose.
