    We don't get off for this holiday but I received an email from a friend in another district and they're out. Just wondering, how many of you get a three day weekend?

    Man I feel lucky. We got the entire week of March 23 off and then we get this Friday and Monday off for Easter. It's like 2 breaks! Then we get Thursday off because DC has Emancipation Day. haha

    We get it off, but the district calls it "Vernal Holiday". Not to be confused with spring break, which we've already had.

    All of the schools I go to are closed tomorrow. One district had Spring Break all of this week. Another one starts their Spring Break tomorrow and will be closed all of next week.

    I'm in a Catholic school, as is my husband. Easter vacation goes from Yesterday through next week.

    My kids are in public school. Because Passover coincides with Holy Week this year, they share our vacation. Many years they get a few days for one holy day, and a few for the other, but this year the timing is great!!

    Our spring break was this week, so we're off. In years where the two didn't coincide, we didn't get the day off.

    Our spring break was last week. We always have Good Friday off and sometimes Easter Monday, too. This year EM is a teacher work day.

    We are off Thursday and always on Good Friday. We were supposed to have Easter Monday off, but it is a bad weather make-up day--I'm taking it off, anyway! :p

    It is technically a teacher work day. However, we have a summer conference before school starts and if you attend you get an exchange day - this year it is Good Friday. I think there are only 3-4 teachers that will be working.

    We do.. I am shocked. I thought they would take it to replace a snow day we had. I pray they do not extend our school year.

    I've been off all week for spring break. We go back on Tuesday. I am so glad they planned the schedule this way for a change. We usually split up the spring break (3 day weekend) and the Easter holiday (4 day weekend).

    I have today off but it is not a Good Friday holiday. Today is "Snow Day." We haven't used it this year, so we are off today.

    Up until Wed. everyone in my district was prepared to work today. Last Wednesday, it was announce via email that we'd be off. However, due to one storm day and a snow day, we still have two days to make up. So, we have to go to school on Apr. 25th, a Saturday.
