I'm noticing that the longest park hours are for the week of the 20th and 27th. Our March Break is the week of the 13th. I'm curious to know when the other March Breaks are??? We're in Thames Valley Board, in the London Area. I'm hoping that we might be the week before the rush but that's likely wishful thinking. ... :earboy2:

In Toronto, originally it was the week of the 13th then it was decided since Easter is early and instead of having the kids off a week then back for four days and off for four days again, they switched it.

I know that the Peel have it still as the week of the 13th which is really annoying the those teachers that work in TO but live in Peel!

In Nova Scotia, it is the week of March 14-18. Since there are only 4 work days the following week, we have decided to extend our Disney trip to 2 weeks! Can't wait! :cool1:

That is annoying. Luckily (?) our board is so big that you almost couldn't live in it and work outside it. :p . We had a whole thing about that last year as well about when it was going to be b/c of easter. I think they took a vote on it. I heard the other day in the staff room that there is a board who went a day or two extra at Christmas since it was the whole week before, and they're taking the day at March Break. That would be good too.

Ottawa area (Upper Canada District School Board) it's the week of the 14th. I see we're not the only ones taking advantage of the week off to head to WDW.

Hey Chris, where abouts are you located? I teach in the UCDSB! I was hoping they would change the break. It is so hard to get the kids back into routine after a break.

We have two kids in the UCDSB system. We're in SF.

Ontario residents might find the attached link to be of assistance for future planning. (Of course, it won't help you if school boards opt out of the province mandated breaks like the TDSB did this year.)

March Break on PEI starts March 20.
It seems that many families with teachers are taking advantage of the extra day and heading to Disney for the break. We are hoping to beat the crowds and are heading out Feb 3. Can't wait!

We're from the Windsor/Tecumseh area and everyone around here gets the 14th-18th. I think that WDW will be full of Canadians.

Our district SB decided our break is from the 11th-18 inclusive.
Lost a day at Christmas but gained one day here.
That's okay-we're gone 11-19th WDW and Cruisin'

Any advice from Cdn cruisers appreciated! (Scratch?)
