The only official "breaks" from field are outlined above.  Students are expected to be in their field placements at all other times during the academic year and must complete at least 600 hours of fieldwork. Under no circumstances are students allowed to finish field before the end of scheduled courses.  Students are allowed 3 days of absences from field placement which do not have to be made up.  All other absences from placement due to agency closings or any other reason must be made up.
