Christmas break?

Do your kids get the week between Christmas and New Years off school? Does your local high school have finals the week before Christmas?

Our local high school has finals (I believe) that Monday-Thursday before Christmas and their Christmas break starts on Friday the 23rd. They return to school either the 2nd or 3rd. Back when my boys were in high school they'd get off for Christmas break, come back for a week of finals prep and then have finals 2 weeks after Christmas break - even back then they were talking about changing it and I believe it finally got changed about 2 years ago. Jason has his last final up at med school on Dec. 16 but is staying over as he's volunteering in a Chicago clinic the morning of hte 17th before coming home. Classes resume for him on Jan. 2. Justin is still working at the same call center but started a new account last week so he's in training Mon-Fri 8:30-5 until the end of the year. Not sure if they'll get an extra day or two off near Christmas since Christmas and New Years are both on a Sunday this year. Hope you all had a great weekend!
