We are in central IN. I want this. Wish our school would change!

We will get two days off: Thursday, October 10, and Friday, October 11, but we don't get Columbus Day, October 14, off.

So I'm voting for the October 6-12 week, even though we don't get the entire week off -- as these are the only days that school is out between Labor Day and Veterans Day.

That's what I did too. Same as ours.

Ours is the first week of September. We have Labor Day off and then Thursday/Friday of the same week. Weird. We are pulling our DD6 Tues/Wed and going to WDW

We don't have a fall break in our school system. Our school year doesn't start until after Labor Day, so no need for a fall break.

I am intrigued by this fall break idea. At the same time I am thankful we do not have it.

We have no fall break except if you count Thanksgiving. We don't start school until after Labor Day so I think a fall break would be silly for us even though the day after Halloween off would be nice.

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.
our last day before break is Friday, October 4. We are out through Columbus Day, October 14. Central Kentucky.

I'm in Northern Indiana and we are changing to a balanced schedule for the 2014/15 school year. I can't wait! It will make planning our Disney vacations much easier!

ours is connected to the holiday, due to the large number of government workers/military in our area. it is also the end of the first grading period ... we go back to school the first week of August.

In the Denver area, never even heard of a fall break but wish we had one. I would much rather have a shorter summer and 2 extra weeks of fall to go on vacation when it wasn't so crowded.
