    Nope, we get Semana Santa off (Easter week). Which falls in March this year.

    Tomorrow we're making up a snow day. We have off the last week of March for spring break. I'm bummed because it falls during Holy Week this year. As a church organist, that means I really can't go anywhere then...

    Yes, I am off this whole week :). I am in one of those states who has week long (or more) breaks in December, February and April. And either our April break or Memorial Day weekend will be longer because we will get back unused snow days. We haven't used one this year so far! Of course, we are in school until the third week of June so it evens out.

    Never heard of such until A to Z. We have MLK and Presidents' Day off if they're not makeup days.

    We don't have any breaks until mid-March's spring break. Such a loooooong stretch.

    No February break here. We don't get President's Day off. Our upcoming breaks are Spring Break, which is the third week in March, and a four day weekend for Easter, then nothing until the end of school. I wish they would build a snow day into MLK day and President's Day because everyone else in my family is off those two days. But, the didn't ask for my input. :p

    My district has always run a tight Labor Day to Memorial Day schedule. 2 days at Thanksgiving and 5 school days at Christmas.
    Although you get used to it, it is rough.
    Kids need an extended break from not only work but from each other...and me :wub:

    We have tomorrow (Monday) off for President's Day. This was surprising, I forgot about it, because we barely get any holidays. My daughter's high school district has off this Monday, and had off last Monday.

    During my first 5 years in my district, we got off an entire week in February.

    For the past 3 years, we've only gotten a four-day weekend.

    Not complaining, though. I'll take a four-day weekend anytime!

    We have no February break, but we have Spring Break in March. We have a really long spring break this year. We get a whole week off, then we have the next Monday off for a leave day and Tuesday and Friday off for State holidays I think. So in two weeks, we only go in for Wednesday and Thursday.

    Nope, what we usually have are February break downs. I see
    a few already in one school with some being out quite a bit.
    I actually took a mental health day on Valentines Day.
    We get Spring Break in the middle of March. A week off.

    I have tomorrow off if that counts as a "small break." In my last district we had the entire week off. I liked it but the gen ed teachers were always complaining about having a week off before state testing. Now that I'm a gen ed teacher, I totally get it! I would be freaking out if we had an entire week off of school right now! My spring break is the end of March and then we don't have any days off until the end of the year. I think that stretch is going to be really long!
