Our public schools here in AK let all the kids out last Friday and gave the teachers an in-service to submit semester grades; my private school had a half-day last Friday so that we could all celebrate together then go carolling out in the community as a kind gesture to others. Your last post stated that your VA students weren't supposed to get out of school until Christmas Eve. How long was there break supposed to be?
Only to the 4th. For some reason, we don't get a full two weeks normally.
We never got a full two weeks when I was a child, and my mother never got one in the decades after when she was teaching school -- normally it was just the week between Christmas and New Year's, with maybe Christmas Eve off if it was Monday or day after New Year's if it was Friday.
Huh. I thought I had logged in.
