We usually have the week after Easter off for our Spring Break- not so for this year. A few years ago our county decided on making the first full week of April Spring Break for all school districts. The benefits are that families can schedule vacations a year or two out without worrying about their students missing school.
Well, since the county mandate, this is the first time that Easter has been a week away from the first full week of April. It seemed to have fallen the weekend butting up to break or the weekend at the end of break. Walking around the school today, I can tell it is going to be a loooonnnng week!
Students are still sugared up from Easter goodies, parents are already calling their students in absent for Thursday and Friday, and teachers are compiling their ‘to do’ lists and hoping they get done so they can enjoy the break.
Let’s just keep swimming and look forward to 4:30 on Friday!
