The troupe gets Independence Day off.
Can you explain what "get off" means in this sentence?
The troupe gets Independence Day off [work].
It's simply a shortened version of the above. It can apply to any regular thing that someone would normally be expected to attend though, so:
...gets Independence Day off school.
...gets Independence Day off football practice.
The context will tell you what the missing word is.
In this case, the word "troupe" suggests either some sort of military role, a youth group such as the scouts, or a theatre group. But in reality, you would probably already have this information from elsewhere in the piece of writing.
Not a teacher.
