    Wow, I've never heard of that. We don't have off for President's Day, MLK Jr. Day, Columbus Day, etc. The only holidays we have off for are Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Memorial Day.

    I'm so thankful that we had today off. We have Monday off, too.

    My district calls it "Presidents' Weekend."

    In my district the kids have always have a 4-day Valentine's Day/President's Day weekend. Teachers have 3-days off, the Friday before is a PD day. I'm not complaining!:lol:

    We have a four day weekend, too! It's amazing! A lot of the districts around us have the Mondays off - last Monday and tomorrow - but I like the Friday-Monday set up a lot better!

    We have a snow day, so we ended up off. We'll have to make up our make up day in April now. Is rather have the day off now anyway. We all really needed it!

    It's 9 degrees outside and windy......with more snow expected and kids passing around colds last two weeks, I'm thankful for the week off.

    We're off for a provincial holiday today and it's awesome! We all needed a day. January is long and cold and we work hard. February is crazy with interruptions and cabin fever. I'm hoping everyone is well rested tomorrow and we can hit the ground running again.

    We're off today as well--the break from routine is much needed. We'll be back at it tomorrow, hitting it hard, although I'll be down 7 students for the next couple of days--6 for basketball tournaments and 1 on vacation.
