When is your 2013 Fall Break?

This is inspired by a spring break 2014 thread/poll. I looked around, searched, etc. but could not find a similar one for 2013 fall breaks. There has been a lot of speculation about October 2013 discounts and how they could possibly relate to fall break and/or Columbus Day. If you don't have a fall break, please choose that option, or if it's outside the date ranges given, please choose that one. Thanks.

Sorry, it took me forever to generate the poll. There is a "no fall break" option.

Also, I failed to mention in the poll that Columbus Day is Monday, October 14 this year. Not sure if schools fix their fall breaks to that holiday or if that is just a coincidence with the end of a lot of terms.

The poll only allows for one option, but we have two weeks off for Fall Break so I could not vote. Our school system is off from October 14-25.

Oh man, that would be nice. I would edit the poll to allow for multiple choice, and to insert Columbus Day text in there, but I don't think I can.

To quote Pink Floyd, "I thought I thought of everything." Guess not.

In our area of Central Indiana many schools are going to the "balanced calendar." We get two weeks at Christmas, Spring Break and Fall Break, but our summer is shorter. We get out the end of May and return to school about August 1.

We (at the university where I work) get just two days - Oct 14-15. This is Columbus day, but last year it was the week after Columbus day.

My son's school district (K-12) doesn't get a fall break.

To be honest, I wasn't even aware colleges were getting any time off, except possibly just Columbus Day. We didn't even get Columbus Day off when I was in college. I thought fall break was just a k-12 thing. But I didn't have a fall break growing up in k-12 either. I wish we did. They started it locally about 2 years before my oldest DD entered school. We love it.

That's almost identical to our school schedule in Northeast Georgia. Plus a full week at Thanksgiving.

We're in central Indiana as well, and this will be our first year with a two week fall break (also 10/14-25). I love this new schedule! We're going to WDW from the 17th-23rd
