Which winter break schedule is more common?

Two of my districts are off from Dec. 25 through Jan. 5.

The other is off from Dec. 18 through Jan. 1.

Which schedule is more common?

I only get a 10 day break, but I am glad since I have four more potential work days.

Our last day is Dec. 23, and we go back on Tuesday Jan.9. Our school uses a balanced calendar with 2 weeks off each for fall, winter, and spring break.

You all have more days off than I do! Almost all my districts have their break from the 25th through the first. That's it. 6 days off.

All my districts are off from December 22 to January 1, first day back is January 2nd. I'm grateful that my evening/weekend job has me working 8 hours every day after Christmas until I go back.

All districts in my area generally have a half day on the 23rd and off until the 3rd. This year we have a full day on the 22nd and we are off until the 3rd.

Dec 22 though January 12--three weeks. Leaves about 9 days to earn a January pay check--with 5 of them the week before a three week vacation--very hungry January in store for subs until February pay check.

Ours is the 25th to the 8th, but I am taking a nice 3 week break, a luxury of subbing, so today was my last day until the 8th.😊

I assume people are discussing typical breaks off? Or do some of you truly work Saturdays? (the 23rd) Our last day before break is the 21st and teachers return on the 4th. I was glad because to make it to New York for Christmas from Illinois flying out Friday morning made the most sense. If I'd had to work the 22nd we would have had to pay a lot more for tickets. Students get the 4th and 5th of January off due to teacher inservice days. I guess they decided a two day week for kids would be silly.

I never liked returning to school the day after New year's, but we always did when I was school in the 60's and early 70's.

Even those who are beginning their breaks next week should also have the 2nd off and return on the 3rd. but my largest district returns on the 2nd.

This, in my opinion, somewhat ruins New Year's Day.

Ours always varies depending on how Christmas falls.

This year our last day is Dec. 19, and we return on Jan. 2.

My DH is in a neighboring district, and his last day was Dec. 15 He goes back Jan. 3.

Last day for students is Dec. 20th, and they return Jan. 9th. Teachers have a work day on Dec. 21st and a PD day on Jan. 8th. If I were in charge of the calendar, I'd much rather have the time off before Christmas than after.
