    So, I had Fri, the 11th off & again on Mon. I wish they'd just make it a 4-day weekend rather than two 3-day weekends. I like nice, long breaks (not that 4 days is long).

    What do you plan to do? :)

    I have nothing particular on Sat.
    Going to an ice show & out to dinner on Sun.
    Nothing yet for Mon. An amusement park would be fun, but maybe the movies.

    We were supposed to, but it's now a make-up day for snow.

    (But right about now we all could really use a day off...)

    We get off the whole week for Presidents week/ Winter vacation!

    My mom said they started giving the whole week off in 1976 to save on heating costs.

    We have tomorrow off. Usually it's a PD day in our city with all the other districts buuuut no money so they are "forcing" us to have it as a furlough day. I'll end up going in to relax in my classroom though. We also have Monday off.

    I have Monday off. We are having home improvement weekend. My BF has had a honey-do list that is almost a year old. His racing season is going to be starting soon and if this stuff isn't done by then, one of us is going to be ticked off. :)

    Here in my district, we have the whole week off!

    We call it "Presidents' Week!"

    This is the 6th or 7th year that my district has had "Presidents' Week" but I think this may be the final year! Instead, they're talking about just giving us two 3-day weekends.

    Not me.

    I think they scheduled us off for it once or twice, but we ended up using as a snow make-up day.

    This year we've missed 21 days, so I'm not planning on having any days off until we get out in June.

    I, For one, have loved having the two 3 day weekends insted of the longer 4 day weekend.

    I'm a big proponent of 4 day work weeks though.. so I guess that helps.

    I had a PD day today, then I have tomorrow and Monday off. We used to have the whole President's Day week off (called it Ski Week) but we don't anymore.

    We have a PD day on Monday. Our agenda for that day is Common Core and grade level meetings. Parents are mad because we're having a PD day when we have 9 days off from snow to make up. It's hard to explain to them that there is not enough time to go through the procedure to change the day. We are, however, changing a day in April that was supposed to be a PD day.
