Last year it was only a week, here at least. I'm not sure what it is this year. Probably the same. Things sure changed since I went to school. :roll:

Since you've been out of school?! :lol:

I checked our high school calendar, and school is closed on Friday, December 18th and reopens on Tuesday, January 5th for Christmas vacation. This includes weekends of course, and also one inservice day....(Monday) January 4th.
So, it's still two weeks for us. They've been talking about cutting that down for years, though.
:roll:

Since I've been teaching the longest we've been out for Christmas/winter break is a week and a half. But, really though, what is the point in having us go to school for two days? I don't get that!

When I was in school, we usually had two weeks off for Easter and for Christmas. back then, we also had a 4 day weekend in October. ---- Teacher In-service Day, the weekend, and then the following Monday. Now, we (well the kids) just have Friday off. No one knows why; there was never any explanation. I mean, if they take away our vacation day, shouldn't they have the decency to tell us WHY? Geez!

I don't get it, either.

It seems more sense to have the kids out on Friday or Monday and have inservice during that time, which would give the teachers a weekend off like everyone else.
