    We had 3 days off last week. Spring Break starts March 25. We are also off Good Friday and Easter Monday. This stretch between Winter and Spring break is the longest consecutive time we'll be in school for the whole school year! And it's a doozy, with a ton of events and testing.

    We don't get a true spring break. Our "spring break" is typically Good Friday and Easter Monday. We have lost our only long weekend in March due to a sick/clean the school day and will be losing Easter Monday due to a cold day leaving us with 1 week that is not a 5 day week for the rest of the school year. Our last student day is the Friday before Memorial Day, unless we end up with more snow days that will get added onto the end of the year.

    My DH has the day off today. His district was one of many who had a “sick out” today. I was home actually sick today, but my district was in session. I haven’t heard how many districts closed, but three of our biggest did.

    My spring break is technically coming up, but I'm going to spend it at the new district. I think it'll be worth it come September so I'm not walking in completely blind. But I also know come the summer time I'm going to be beyond ready for a break. Which is pretty much why I just booked a hotel on the beach for a few days.... That my husband paid for.... But anyways I know that it will be a welcome relief.

    I am officially on Spring Break as of yesterday at 2:00 when I submitted grades.

    Sadly I still have homework this week since grad school spring break didn't line up, but at least I have lots of free time to do homework!

    But you just have single work rather than double!

    Enjoy break from work!

    Wow, you guys have Spring Break early! At my school, we don’t have Easter Break until the 3rd week of April, which is when I have about 1.5 weeks off. Though, I do have a 3.5-day workweek next week and another 3 day-weekend shortly after that and so I can’t complain. :p

    Ours is the week of the 15th. Although it's late this year, I do not mind. It makes the time just fly by once we return. :D

    Ours is in two weeks, and by spring break I mean a day off. Then that's our last day off for the year. We get out before Memorial Day, but which day is questionable. We had our first snow day in 26 years this year. We were supposed to get out on the Thursday before Memorial Day, but when they called the snow day, the last day of school got pushed back to the Friday before Memorial Day. However, last week our board voted to petition our state for an exemption to the 180 days required by law, considering how infrequently snow days are called. So right now, will it be Thursday? Will it be Friday? No one knows.

    I'm really looking forward to this vacation :(
    I want to take a break from work, somewhere far away from the city and read interesting books ( some books on Bookkooks ). Read one of best 2018 books and just relax...
    Do not get it wrong, I love to teach children, but it is very exhausting.
