    Anyone else have Fall Break? Ours is this week. It's fantastic. We started August 10, so we were in for 8 weeks before this break. I am thoroughly enjoying myself so far. :)

    We also have a week off for Thanksgiving. We have a shorter summer than most, but I enjoy having more frequent breaks throughout the year instead.

    We have a fall break this week, too. We started August 5.

    We get two weeks at Christmas and a week in April if we don't need it for making up snow days.

    Yeah, fall breaks don't happen here. As a matter of fact, many schools here don't have a day off until Thanksgiving. Depending on how they schedule comp time, some districts do have a day off during the week of conferences.

    We don't have fall breaks here, the only schools I know have it are year round schools. We started August 17th, so far we had Labor Day 3 day weekend, this weekend coming up is a long weekend, and then we'll have Veterans Day, which will be on a Wednesday, instead of a Monday :( but then things get moving quickly with 1 weeks for. Thanksgiving, 3 weeks for winter and then we'll have all kinds of long weekends in the spring :)

    I'm on fall break too and I'm loving the time home with my boys. Especially since the baby has been running a fever- it means I didn't have to take off days I don't have ha

    We will get a week off for thanksgiving, 2 weeks for Christmas then 2 weeks in March.

    This sounds like our schedule. We start August 10 and don't get out until June 10, but we also have fall break, a week for Thanksgiving, 2 weeks for Christmas, and 2 weeks in March/April for spring. We also have some 3 day weekends here and there for President's Day, MLK, etc. I love it.

    Same as stg if I was still in a district.

    However, this year since I work w/ kids who are homeschooled, I'll only get 2 days off I assume: TG day itself since it lands on the day I work w/ the kids (yay!) & I'm pretty sure I'll get Christmas Eve off since that's close to Christmas & that's the day I work w/ them.

    We'll have this coming Monday off for Thanksgiving, then a PD Day at the end of November. That's it until Christmas.

    We're on the same schedule in my district.

    We do live in the same area, though! :D

    We're on Fall Break, but it is a four day weekend with Tuesday as PTC Day, so no students on that day.

    I hope those of you who have fall breaks coming up enjoy them! :)

    Mine is over. I didn't do much, but it was super relaxing, which is great since October is crazy.

    When I taught at a year round school, I got three to four weeks off during October. That was my favorite break if the year.

    We got Labor Day off and will get a week at Thanksgiving at two at Christmas. We'll have a week for spring break. I think there are two other single days off in the year.
