We have decided that no matter how much we all love Tennis, it will always be school first. Sports is always a riskly choice and should always have a back-up plan. I know several friends who had to give up sports because of an illness or long injury and do not have a good education to survive. We do not take our kids to any tournaments that causes them to miss school. I do sometimes pull them out an hour early if the matches start on Friday. However, if there is a very tempting tournament, we try to reach out to the teacher and make up for the missed schedule ahead of time but that has not happened much. I do not want to give my kids mixed messages so always stick to the principle that school comes first. If your priority is school first then stick to you. We have to just accept the advantage that home schooled kids have. Hope this helps.
