We homeschool and we're taking 6 weeks off between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I'm hoping to take the kids down during the first or second week of December, before things get too busy.

Our SE PA schools never have good breaks. We do not EVER get a week off from school except for Christmas. And the kids only have off from Chrismas Eve until New Year's Day. There are no spring breaks, presidents' weeks, etc. We get long weekends here and there - that's it. The only longer break we get is Wed before Thanksgiving thru the Monday after.

Wow you guys get long breaks! For the upcoming school year we have no more early dismissals at all. So traditionally the 23rd was a half day. For the 2011-2012 school we have a full day on the 23rd. So our first day off is Christmas Eve.

The first 2 weeks of December are the only weeks that are not seriously packed, and week one is the better of the 2.

I voted for December 16, 2011.

Our children always get two FULL weeks of winter vacation. I'm surprised to read that some schools stay in session until December 23rd. When do you go back to school??????? Is that a year-round school program?

Wow 2 full weeks off! We get out early on Dec. 23 and next year will go back Jan. 3, which is odd. Normally we go back on Jan. 2 as long as that's a weekday. Just looking forward to our last day of school this year, which is June 21. This is not year round. We start school after Labor Day.

Our school calendar is posted here. Our last day is Dec 16 and kids go back Jan 4. That's on top of a full week off at Thanksgiving. They're killing me with all the time off in November and December. Forces parents to scramble for a few camps that run during the school year or take time off.

Edit to add: we start school really early - August 8!

We go to Dec. 23rd, start again on Jan 2nd, unless the 2nd falls on the weekend. Not a year round school program. Of course we also get a full week off in Feb. around President's Day and a full week off in April near Easter (usually the week including Good Friday). Start the week before labor day. Last day this year is June 23rd. This is normal everywhere I know of in New England.

The 23rd is our first day of Christmas break but we don't go back until the 9th. So we get two weeks as well. No, not a year round school program. We are done for the year at the very end of June and go back the day after Labour Day here. We'll get two weeks at Christmas, a week for March break, and then a handful of long weekends, like Easter, Thanksgiving etc.
