Elementary School Kids Elementary School Kids

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?

Same here. My kids get Thanksgiving "break" (I use that loosely), Christmas (winter) break, mid-winter break, and spring break.

I live in Los Angeles and we have a Fall break/retreat week October 14th - 18th. Kids can just take the week off or go on class trips.

 We have Thanksgiving/buck season break, Christmas break, and Easter break.  The first day of buck season in PA is the Monday after Thanksgiving so our schools are closed Thanksgiving through the following Tuesday.

I also live in Indiana and our district and the ones around us do a fall break. Idk why some do and some don't.

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.

We live in California.  Fall break is usually the week of Thanksgiving.  We also have winter break around Christmas, and spring break around Easter.

I dont know why either. I think it should be the same all around. I like the idea of having a fall break around Thanksgiving, even if there is winter break in a month for Christmas into the New Year celebration. Its chaos over the holidays as it is.

We are in Denver. My older 2 are in public school and they have a fall break the last week of October. My youngest is in a private school. He has all of the Jewish holidays off, so no need for any more days off until Thanksgiving.
