    I have class Monday through Wednesday. I was talking to a friend of mine from another state, they have off all week. Still another friend has off Wednesday and the rest of the holiday.
    I'm just curious what the rest of you have. We never get off the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, yet alone the entire week.

    Me!!!! We get off the Monday after Thanksgiving, too, because of deer season. lol.

    At my old job, they have off all week, but that's because they used to have PD mon and tues, and they had to cut it for budget reasons. Everyone has to take 5 days unpaid furlough in my old state. So I am jealous that they get a whole week off for Thanksgiving, but not that they aren't getting paid...

    Normally, we start a day earlier than the public school so that we can have Wednesday off, but we had to take an extra day earlier this year (the public school, whose schedule we follow, had a different fall break from our state's Lutheran teachers conference).

    Oh, and we were going to have a half-day until the state outlawed them this year.

    We're off Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. This is the first year we've ever had Wednesday, which is really nice.

    We get out an hour early on Wednesday. Then we have Thursday and Friday off. It would have been nice to have another day off or even the whole week off, I could use it.

    We have a 1/2 day on Wednesday. My nieces and nephews go to a private school in Oklahoma and they are out all week. They also get a week long spring break and a week long Easter break. We get one 4 day break in the spring. They can't believe that they star 1 1/2 weeks before we do and go 2 weeks longer than we do.

    Tuesday is a half day for us - out at 12:30 (fingers crossed all my students get picked up on time!) and then off for the rest of the week. Yeah!!!!

    My mom forgot that not every state celebrates the first day of hunting season. (I'm originally from PA.) She was initially shocked when I told her I had to go back to work the following Monday. :p

    ETA: We have a half-day Wednesday. I doubt I'll get much done-- the kiddies are way too excited as it is.

    The last several yrs, my district & those in my area have had this whole week off. Before that, it was just Thus, Fri & the weekend off.

    (Also, the whole week off before Thanksgiving was minimum day at most schools for parent-teacher conferences.)

    Not us.

    Full classes today and tomorrow; mass and shortened periods (but still a full day) Weds.

    That's OK... Christmas is just around the corner.

    We have Wednesday off. It was suppose to be parent teacher conferences but we did them at night to have the day off. My cousin about 20 mins away (same state) has all week off.

    We're off all week. I didn't realize that there were so many places that only have Thursday/Friday off.
