    Just curious.

    We have a full day on the 23rd.

    I don't mind that as a teacher, but I wish I had more time to be home with my kids before the holiday.

    Most of the public schools in my area get the 23rd off. Many of the charter schools do too, but a lot are open the 23rd too.

    That'll be a useless day, right? Friday. Two days before Christmas. Kids'll be wily!

    We have a full day on the 23rd as well. I wouldn't be shocked if our attendance dwindles as that last week wears on.

    We have a half day on the 21. There are two exams in the morning and then a luncheon provided by our P. After that we are done :) Final grades aren't due until the 3rd.

    Full day on the 22nd, off on the 23rd. Kids' and dh's districts both have full days on the 23rd. We're back on Jan 3rd. And then believe it or not my students have a half day on the 4th for professional development. Would much rather have that half day the following week.

    Our exams end on the 22nd.

    If any of my kids are absent for my exam, I'll have to go in on the 23rd and grade the makeup. Either way I'll be done by noon.

    I already know I have one girl who will be having knee surgery next week, but she'll make up her exams sometime after Christmas and I'll grade it in January.

    We come back on January 3rd. Most schools around here (including my kids, I think) go back on the 2nd.

    While I'm not thrilled to be in school for a full day on the 23rd, I'm going to love being off until the 9th of January!

    Our last full day is Dec 16th. We have half days for exams on the 19th, 20th, and 21st. Our grades are due before we can leave on the 21st. I am lucky that my exams are all on the 20th so my grades will be done before I go to school on the 21st. Teachers have to stay until 3:00 on exam days but I do not mind that because I will clean up my classroom and grade exams. We do not go back until January 6th. Since I teach at a Christian school this is not winter break for us like czacza said, this is Christmas Break. Our winter break is in February during Mardi Gras week.

    We are done on the 22nd and go back on the 3rd. Some districts are done on the 16 and get a full two-weeks off.

    Our last day is the 16th and we come back on the 4th, but that's an in-service day so the kids don't return until the 5th.

    It works great for me because my children still have preschool that first week before Christmas, giving me some mommy time to prep for the holiday and do my shopping without toddlers underfoot.

    I can't imagine what I'd do if I had to go till the 23rd. That's cutting it so close!

    Friday (the 16th) is our last day. It's half day for students, but since our superintendent is a grinch we've been given strict orders that we are expected to stay the full day. We come back to school on the 2nd which kind of stinks. I wsas hoping for one extra day since I'll have to fly back here on New Years Day.

    We are done on the 16th, it is a half day and we go back on January 4th. But I'm a private school so we don't have to follow all the district rules. We try to stick close to them, but not always.
