    Just curious. Ours goes very late this year. We go until the 21st (Friday - 1/2 day). While having all that time on the other end to get decorations down and put away (and hit a few sales!:whistle:) is nice, we only get 1 weekend between school and Christmas Eve! :eek:hmy:

    Yikes! Some of you have some short holidays. We got back on the 7th. Our six weeks ends the 21st so I have the holidays to finish grades. That's nice at least.

    Wow, I didn't realize that so many other teachers had such nice, long holidays!

    We're out on 12/21 and back on the 1/2, which is pretty long break here in NJ.

    Our students' last day is Dec. 20th. The 21st is a teacher workday. Then teachers come back on Jan. 7th (teacher workday) and the kids come back on Jan. 8th. So I have from 12/21 to 01/07. I miss my college Christmas breaks. Last year I was off from Dec. 6 to Jan. 8. :(

    The week before our break, school's out at 11:45 for parent conf. week. Last day ia the 21st, we go back Tues. the 15th & then get the following monday, the 21st off too. In total, we get about a month off & this isn't a year-round school that's on any type of track.

    Last day of teaching is the 14th (yeah!) but there's grade meetings on the 17th, 18th and 19th. Luckily the 3 meetings I'll have (concerning my three classes) take place on Monday, so I will be on "vacation" by tuesday the 18th! School restarts on the 3rd of January.
