What day does your Winter break begin?

I think the reason why the school year begins earlier every year is due to holiday breaks getting longer.

Two of my three districts have their last day tomorrow on Dec. 19. This is 18 days off.

My other ends on the more traditional Friday the 21st.

I have been offered jobs on 87 consecutive days since day one, but I sense a three day losing streak to end the year. Nothing has yet come up for the last three days of this week.

How common are these early starts to the break? When does your district(s) begin their break?

Today is out last day. All of our band and guitar students are going to the elementary schools to perform, and we are keeping the other kids entertained with The Polar Exoress, pajamas, and hot chocolate in the morning and a ketchup/pickle day in the afternoon.

After this afternoon we are finished until January 2nd.

As expected, my work streak ended today. I did get my hope up briefly at about 8:10 when I called AESOP to discover two job offers, but both were for April 18th.

IMA Teacher goes back early on Jan. 2. My three districts all go back on Jan 7.

I wonder what is the more common return date?

Last day of 2018 subbing will be Friday, December 21st; 6th grade, middle school, watching Polar Express.

First day of 2019 is 1st grade at a "primary center."

break times

The district I am working at now starts their break after this Friday, Nov 21. The other district I am at are already on break and have a 3 WEEK break! They started after the 14th. The second district gives up the usual days off at the beginning of the year to get this 3 week break.

I believe they all start back on the 7th.

If they keep starting earlier to get more days off for their Christmas break, wouldn't that impact their year because I thought that there were a set number of days that school has to be open.

The first district may have their schedules change because of snow days.

And I refuse to work then. I'm working a half day tomorrow. After that, nothing until they go back on the 7th (I think that's the day). But January is already half booked.

The last day is a half day on the 21st, and kids return on the 8th, I think.

It is staff only on the 2nd and kids on the 3rd.

My DH is in a different district, and his is the same.

Tomorrow is our last day, and we return Jan. 8. We are on a balanced calendar, so we have two weeks off between each quarter.
