When does your Thanksgiving break begin?

For those teaching...
When does your break begin for Thanksgiving? We only have Thanksgiving and the day after off. We have full days Monday to Wednesday next week.

Thanksgiving Break

We have a half day on Wednesday and then Thursday and Friday off. It's a break from teaching but it's otherwise the busiest 'break' of the year!

As a kid, we always had a half day on Wednesday and then Thursday and Friday off. As far as I knew everybody had that.

When I first started teaching in this District I assumed it was the same and was shocked to find out we went all day Wednesday. Many years later they started giving us all of Wednesday off.

We have Wednesday through the next Monday off. Monday is deer day. It is the first day of gun season. We had a ridiculous amount of absenteeism between hunting and traveling they just gave it to us. It has been a day off for 40+ years.

We are dismissing early Tuesday, and teachers get to leave as soon as the kids are gone. We used to have to do it like your school, but they added a day and call it fall break.

Whatever soothes their conscience, I am here for the extra vacation day.

In my district, students are only in school on Monday of next week. Tuesday is parent teacher conferences, and the rest of the week is off. Since I am only a teaching assistant, I am not required to attend parent teacher conferences so I get Tuesday through Sunday off.

Like a previous poster, when I was going to school growing up, we always had a half day on Wednesday then the rest of the week off. When I started teaching in other states, I was surprised to see that practically no districts in my area have school on Wednesday, and many have Tuesday or the whole week off.

My school will be in session Monday and Tuesday but I only work on Wednesday and Friday, so my break will begin tomorrow. My GS has the entire week off, so his break will begin tomorrow as well. Long Thanksgiving breaks are fairly typical in this part of Wisconsin. The 10 day deer gun hunt begins on Saturday, which is a bigger deal than Thanksgiving in this neck of the woods. It's easier to just schedule a break than to try to deal with the high rates of absenteeism caused by many families being at their deer camp all week.

Thankfully, we get all of next week off! We didn't used to, but things changed about 7-8 years ago...
I'm very thankful!!

Our Monday and Tuesday are Parent Teacher conferences. Teachers will be at school doing virtual conferences. We have Wed-Friday off.

Mine starts Saturday. I took Mon-Tues off to head off to my parents for the week. I took an extra day at the other end. My dh is confident I will not make it back due to airline stuff. What a pessimist!

We get the whole week. But, its really because that week is the first week of deer season, not because of Thanksgiving.

I'd be very unhappy about that schedule! We get the whole week off. As a kid it was always just Wed-Fri. Here the whole week off seems typical. This has been the longest week ever! One more day!

We have school Monday - Wednesday next week. I would like to have Wednesday off too, however I would rather have the extra day at Christmas break.
