  • I live in Tampa, FL and teach 2nd grade. We started our break today. But my mom works as a TA in New York and she starts break on the 23rd. We both start back the monday after new years. My students don't come back until the following day( we have a teacher planning day on the 5th.).

  • My ds is in 2nd grade, and I'm in college - both of our winter breaks started today. We go back January 12th, so 3 weeks. Way too long for him, way too short for me.

  • Our break is from Dec 20th until January 4th, so returning on the 5th, BUT they just had this whole last week off due to ice and snow and freezing temps.
