    I'm curious when most schools have scheduled spring break this year.

    Even if you don't have the whole week off, please select the option that includes the days you have off!

    Also, if you have both Spring Break AND Easter, please specify only the week that you have Spring Break.

    Of course, I also have two baseball games scheduled during that span, so I guess I don't get a spring break this year.

    We are off from March 9th to March 18th (inclusive). That extra Friday before the week makes such a huge difference!

    At Easter we are off only on Good Friday and Easter Monday.

    Apr 2-6. It seems so far away. We have about 6 FULL weeks after next week before Spring Break. NO days off, no teacher work days, no nothing. :(

    Our spring break is March 16 and 17. We also get March 2 off. We don't take any days off after our parent teacher conferences and take them in March to coincide with the girls and boys BB tournaments.

    Answer: Too far away! ;) Our spring break is the week of the 19th, but begins the Friday before due to parent/teacher conferences. I have 2 MAT classes during the week though.

    It's too early, even for Texas. Once though, our break was the first week of March and it was so cold! I'm still convinced someone on the school board wanted to go skiing that spring break!

    I also get off March 2nd for the local stockshow.

    I don't get a spring break since we're a childcare center... but our "spring break week" is Mar. 26-30... lots of our teacher kids will be gone so we won't hit curriculum as hard ;)

    No President's Day off here. It was originally scheduled to be an Instructional Support day; but due to the three days we just missed due to snow, today was our IS day and Monday will be a regular school day with students.

    Interesting! I didn't realize so many would have it in April or I would have included that in the poll. Spring break in this area is always in March during Easter week OR if Easter is in April, there are 2 breaks!

    Our Spring Break is April 9-13. This Monday, Presidents Day, is the last holiday until then. The last two weeks of March are dedicated to Terra Nova testing across the grade levels.

    We were supposed to have Monday off for President's Day, but now it is a makeup day for the snow we had on Feb. 1 (but that was ok because the first was my bday :) ). We have a workday Mar. 23 and then our last day before spring break is Mar. 30th. We don't go back until Apr. 10th.

    Mid-winter break: February 19-23
    Spring break: April 16-20

    It's great! I like the mid-winter break better than the spring break because the weather won't let the kids go out to play and they get stir crazy. The mid-winter break really helps.

    I don't know if my college counts (lol) but we call it Spring Blink. The school administration wanted to give us a shorter semester (13 weeks) but to do that, had to almost eliminate Spring Break. We get a long weekend instead of a full week off - we're off Thurs. and Fri., then the weekend, and back to school Monday. :rolleyes: Ahh the sacrifices we make for what we want! lol

    I switch my student teaching placement after the quarter, and both schools have spring break while I'm at the other one. So...no spring break for me this year! (although I do get one day off between placements and two days for Easter)

    We only have off on Good Friday and Easter Monday...if no other snow storm come around. If we miss another day because of snow, they'll take away Easter Monday. If we miss two more, they'll take away Good Friday, and that means no days off (no teacher workdays, nothing) from now until Memorial Day in May!
