    Have the countdowns started yet?

    Our last day is this Thursday the 15th. Students are released at noon and we're having a staff luncheon at a local restaurant at 12:45. We normally order pizza and have a celebration here at school, but this year, we decided to go off campus.

    Looking forward to having some time away from work. I've vowed to not come to the office during vacation!

    Wow that sounds like a nice length break. December 15 seems early to me. Do you have a year-round schedule? When do you come back from break? Good luck not working! I think that sounds like a great idea.

    We have a half day and staff luncheon on 12/22. I'm not counting just yet. We have a couple big days to get through before I start counting.

    Wow, I'm a little envious that you finish this week! I'm done the 21st - kids are done the 20th, and we come back January 4th. Not NEARLY enough time off, if you ask me. :(
    It's ok though... I have plans already done for next semester because of student teaching, so I'm actually excited for math coming up in January. I've given up on this week. XD

    We have minimum days this week, starting today, Tuesday and the last day is Friday, the 16th. We come back January 10th or whatever that Monday is. A nice 3 weeks break :)

    That's an incredibly short break! I thought everyone here in CA had at least 2 weeks off!
    Don't you guys get a fall break, though?

    We had 3 days off in October and a week for Thanksgiving. It's because we started late due to construction on our new campus. None of us are happy about it!

    We have our last full day tomorrow and Winter Graduation on Friday, then off until January 2nd (we return on the 3rd). Bear in mind that we are a year-round school.

    We are done the 20th. Starting tomorrow the students have exams and half days, so it winds down pretty quickly. We come back January 9th. This is the longest break we've had that I can remember!

    Technically, our last day is Friday the 16th. But exams are being given today as I type so students won't have to show up during half-days tomorrow and Friday. Having a luncheon tomorrow at noon.

    The official last day is December 26th and we come back on January 6th.
    But some of the teachers have to come in on the 27th for meetings and whatnot.

    Last day is December 21st which is a half day for students. Teachers return January 2nd and students return January 3rd. My break is too short for my liking!

    We finished Friday and go back the 2nd ( a planning day). One of my schools met at a ladies house and the food people brought was amazing. We had Secret Santas and gave our final gift. My other school just brought in food. We had early release days Thurs and Friday. All I can tell you is kindergarten teachers need to be paid double on days before Christmas break.
    As for not going into work. I have to go in and enter my grades and also do some lesson plans.

    We go until December 20 and return January 3rd.

    My DH had his last day Friday, and he doesn't go back until January 4th.

    We work in neighboring districts.

    Technically tomorrow is our last day, but I'm off now that my wife got home from hospital yesterday after an 86 day stay. Taking these few days to get her re-acclimated to the house without her right leg.

    I'll be popping in at school tomorrow to say merry Christmas to my kids though.

    Made it to the last day! We have a school-wide assembly this morning, then it will be classroom and locker clean up along with finishing up a couple of pieces of work. I'm off this afternoon for an appointment at the fracture clinic, and I'm leaving a movie for my sub; we've all been running on fumes the past couple of days!.

    We basically did nothing today. Staff breakfast in the morning. The two adulterers were sitting together. Feel so sorry for his wife and baby! TFA teacher with the fancy degree sitting by herself. Learned my lesson from last year. Students in no mood for work, so i showed Simpsons videos in all my classes.

    Yesterday was last day. My kids were great. We read great books, did Hour of Code on our laptops, spent some time with our kindergarten buddies. I got some beautiful gifts from families.
