How long until Christmas break?

It's December!

How long until Christmas break for you? This is a weird year with Christmas falling on a Monday. We normally have about a week off before and a week off after, but this year we have to go through December 21st. We are off Friday, December 22nd. No time to get anything done before Christmas, but we don't have to go back until January 8 (kids go back January 9).

Ten more days. School finishes December 15. Teachers are meant to have PD days on the 18th and 19th, but we traded those in early in the year (did enough afternoon/evening PD to cover the required time). We go back on the 29th January, with kids starting on the 30th.

14 1/2 days. This is the kind of year that I'm counting down between each break, because that's the only way I can handle the craziness that is this year.

My 23rd year teaching/24th working in a classroom, and it's my CUH-RAZIEST year EVER!!!

12/16-1/1 (break). 10 more days for most of us. I took a personal day because of my choir's concert weekend so I only have 9 more days, but . . . sub plans. And also spending an entire weekend standing on a cramped riser under lights!

I have the same schedule as you, OP. Our first day off is the 22nd, teachers go back for a PD day on Jan. 8th and students return on the 9th. Dec. 21st is a work day for us. In previous years, the work day was always in January before students returned. I wish we were still doing that; I think it's going to be really hard to be as productive the day before Christmas break!

Cat, how is the middle school job going?

It's going ok. Each day is a little better. I begged the district for a transfer and they said they would try, but I might just decide to stay because it's not too bad. If you want to know more I can tell you in pm.

We end on December 15 and go back on January 2 (my 33rd wedding anniversary ������), so we have 17 days off! I should have planned a trip to Europe! I will instead be painting some interior rooms in my house. Kids will be with cousins (all are grown up) in San Diego, and husband will probably be on a work trip. Time to adopt a Labrador, don’t you think? Happy December

We go until the 22nd. I'm a long term sub and my long term is over at 2:20 on the 8th. I am doing some mentoring the following 2 weeks, so my last day will be at 2:20 on the 20th. I'm taking a break from subbing for awhile after that. I am so glad I don't have to sub on the 22nd. I'm wondering how many children will actually be in school because of traveling. A parent is putting together a classroom party on the 22nd and has invited me back for that. I'll talk with the new teacher ahead of time and tell her I've been invited and am not just barging in.

I am shocked that so many of you have such a short break. We have a 1/2 day on the 22nd & go back on Jan 8, with kids.

For those that only have about a week off, do you also get some type of winter break? We get usually 2 wks at Christmas & 6 days at Easter. I am in a PK-8 Catholic school.

Students last day is 12/21 full day and we have a PD all day Friday 12/22 . . .But I sure hope it will NOT be another extended PD day for us like on Wed. 12/20 where we stay until 5:00pm. 😳 That would be horrible. We return on 1/8/18 along with our students.

12/22 is a half-day and we go back 1/2. I am okay with it because I don't want to start earlier or extend the school year. If it were up to me, I would even take out our February break. Do a week in March instead of 1 week in Feb an another week in April so we could get out 1 week earlier.
