Long weekend???

 Do your children have a long weekend this coming weekend?

My boys have a half day of school on Friday and were supposed to be off on Monday, but they are now going to make up for missing last Tuesday. Quiet a few schools in my area have all day Friday off, along with Monday, giving their students a 4 day weekend.  Back when I was in school, we didn't have a day off between Christmas break and President's Day unless there was a snow day.

Anyway, I was wondering if the 4 day weekend trend is just a local thing or not.

BTW - yes, I know that Monday is MLK day.  It wasn't a holiday yet when I was in school.

Yes we will have a long weekend. My boys have a half day on Thursday and Friday, and no school on Monday and Tuesday.

We are in Maryland.

Yes, we have a long weekend. A lot of schools are ending their quarter, so they have a teacher work day in addition to the MLK holiday. 

My son has Monday and Tuesday off from his school, but he's shadowing at another school on Tuesday (that had Friday off) to see if he wants to enroll there next year.

Our quarter is ending. Thursday, Friday, and Tuesday are Professional Work Day's. The teachers will work, and no school for the children.

Yes, school is closed. I'll be working from home and am so busy, I would rather be at my quiet office.

 Friday was supposed to be a half day because it was the end of the quarter at DS's school and Monday was to be a day off. Because of the cancellations due to weather, the Friday half day is bumped to the next Friday and Monday is a make up day. Monday will be fun because the kids go bowling.

Only off Monday here. we don't have snow days or any other random days off really unless you count fall and spring break.

My kids always have a 3-day weekend. We do have some Fridays scheduled to keep hours.
