Any help or advice will be appreciated! My friend has organised her wedding pretty last minute... 6 weeks in fact. It’s a very small affair and I’ve been asked to read. The big issue being that it’s on the second day back to school after the summer break. I’ve just come back from a two week holiday and now plagued with all sorts of anxiety surrounding it. Because it’s so last minute, I haven’t spoken to the head about requesting the time off - is it completely inappropriate to ask for the day? My heart is telling me to just ask but my brain is telling me it’s not going to be granted anyway. The only way I could contact would be to email... and to receive work emails during the six weeks would bother me, let alone the fact it’s asking for a day off! Do I just leave it and say to my friend I can’t go? I just want to get other teachers’ perspective on it. Thanks!
