When is Christmas break in your state?

I'm trying to get a handle on Christmas and New Year crowds. When is your state out of school?

I am in Michigan (Oakland county) and the last day of school is Dec 21. Classes resume Jan 7.

I read on some crowd calendar-making person's website that schools everywhere are tending to let the kids out later (Dec. 21). I guess he watches about a hundred of the biggest districts- can't remember who it is or I'd provide the link.

We're in MT so it doesn't matter but it's also Dec. 21-Jan 2.

December 21st-Jan 2nd. Seems like the shortest break of any year I can remember since my children started school in 1995

We got our holiday schedule for next year at work. Kind of crummy the way the days fall. July 4th is Thursday and Christmas is Wednesday. Those are the only days we get but they are giving us 2 floating holidays (like extra vacation days).
