    When is your Spring Break and next few near future breaks? Mine is in three weeks, but I have two days off between now and then, so only 13 days for me. 24 days after Spring Break is Easter break.

    We don't get a separate Easter break, though we do get a day off for Good Friday. We have a 3.5 day weekend right now for President's Day (off tomorrow and half day Tuesday). Then Spring Break is the second week of April.

    My spring break is March 18, then my next break begins May 16, which will be my last day of work before retirement.

    Second week of April. We're in the midst of a mid-winter break (5 days) that ballooned into an 10.5-day break because of snowstorms.

    Three days of our spring break were removed before we even started the year due to construction issues. Then we had snow days, and they said the other two were gone. It’s not like we aren’t used to it, but I still like a little break. They did release an amended calendar, and it has two days of spring break back. I’m hoping it isn't a misprint. We haven’t missed nearly as many days as we have in prior years.

    Our break is always the first full week of April.

    That seems very early for spring break! We have tomorrow off. Spring break is 5 weeks away. We get 6 school days off for that since conferences are Wednesday and Thursday of the week before and Friday is the "comp day." I'd rather conferences be at a different time so we could get a random 3 day weekend over just tacking on a day to an already long break. We get nothing for Easter. After spring break, there are no more days off for the rest of the year!

    We had a 4-day weekend in honor of President’s Day [Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday(today)]. I return tomorrow on Tuesday, which is also a short day.

    We get Good Friday off as well as ALL of the next week off (Easter Break), which is in the 3rd week of April. That is our ”Spring Break,” haha!

    I also have a few days off between now and the end of school, so I will have a three-day weekend here and there, which is pretty sweet.

    Our break is the week of March 11th. We then have a 4-day weekend for Easter, a holiday Monday in May, and a Professional Development Day in early June. That's it until school finishes at the end of June.

    Spring break is in April.

    Spring break is April 13 - 22. It seems long because I count the weekend that starts it, but it's actually a week and 1 day. Seems far, but we just had 2 long weekends (3 day) and will have one more in 2 weeks, so it doesn't seem so bad. Time is going by very fast.

    My Easter Break is April 19-28 and school resumes on April 29th. I, too, count the weekends when referencing my breaks and have a couple of three-day weekends between now and Easter Break like you do.

    Time really does fly by. For me, I’ll hit a major milestone with my budgeting (being 100% debt free and being able to pay my yearly bills up front going forward) on April 12th and I’m really anxious for it to get here, lol. And it is perfect timing because it happens right before my Easter Break! :)

    Amusingly/coincidentally, our first full week in over a month (break/snow days/conferences mixing together rather crazily) is this week, and yet I'll be taking my first sick day (well, a half day on Tuesday) in my 900ish days of teaching.

    Thankfully, then there'll be several normal weeks before Spring Break which is followed by a week where professional development stuff has me out 3.5 days the following week. Quite the weird year.

    Our remaining two days of spring break may be gone. We missed two days for illness last week, and we are out tomorrow for flooding. On the plus side, that’s three sick days I don’t have to use. (I don’t recommend two strains of flu and pneumonia.:mask:)

    If they don’t take our spring break days, we will be finishing after Memorial Day.
