Fall Break??

Talking to this single dad from church & he tells me his boys have the last week in October off of school. They live in Michigan, we live in Ohio. I just asked if they are on fall break or something. But I have never heard of this! I know there is winter break (usually around Christmas) & spring break. But I have never heard of fall break (which he just confirmed it is fall break).

Anyone have this in their area? What area do you live in?

I live in Indiana and while we dont have it here in our District, I know that other areas do. Kentucky, Texas and Florida all have it (we have lived in each of those states). I guess it is fairly common.

I live in Texas and we don't have a Fall break per say but they do get the entire week of Thanksgiving off.  Back when I was in school (a VERY long time ago) we got out early the Wednesday before and then had Thursday and Friday off.

In MN, we get a 4 day weekend in October for the teachers to go to a teachers conference (many of them don't go, though).  I've never thought of it as a fall break, but it is one.

For the last 20 years, my grandma, aunts & I did a ladies weekend for that weekend (my sisters & cousins have started joining us the last couple years).

We get a week  in October, a week in November (for Thanksgiving), two weeks in December, 1.5 weeks in February and a week in April. They call it year round school. I love it.
