No Spring Break? Feb. 9th, 2010 @ 02:43 PM Reply

I live in Arkansas. Recently, we have been receiving a ton of snow, and we have missed a total of 3 school days within the past 2-3 weeks. Not that I'm complaining or anything. But the school admins are threatening to take away our entire spring break if we miss one more day of school due to snow, INSTEAD of making up the days at the end of the year. wtf? why cant they just add a week to the year and let us have spring break? It's not like we need to make up those days NOW or anything. It just pisses me off.

Gah!

Nah, I don't think they can do that, I live in Arkansas too and I don't think they will take away spring break

I live in Central Virginia and I've been off of school since the 1st due to snow, and it just snowed again overnight, so I'll probably be out this week too. I wouldn't mind if they took away or spring break. That's only a week, and I'll probably have 2+ weeks off of school.

Well you're not the only one without a Spring Break this year. Apparently our university thought it was a good idea to give us a week off in February rather than in May. I might have been okay with that, if it were not for the fact that I've just had an almost SIX weeks long Christmas holiday >= |

But anyway, it seems logical to me that your school wants to make up for those lost days. I don't think it would've been any different at my high school. They'd probably consider scratching the Spring Break as well.

I'd just skip school and have my break, not like they'll sue you or anything.

if they add them to the end of the year, even less people will come; plus, some of those would be final exam days. spring break is sadly the best way to go. here in north carolina, their adding some to the end of the year, and taking away some of spring break. at least your not getting both taken away.

Thats what they tried doing here in Virginia, but then all the parents raged at them because they already had plans for this Spring Break, so they are just adding days to the end of the year.

As of today I have two fewer days f spring break due to snow, honestly though, I am swamped and this snow has been a blessing, I'll worry about those make up days when I get to them. Perhaps I will skip regardless.

actually, they will. they WILL take your parents to court for not making you go to school, and they WILL fail you. ive seen it happen to one of my friends.

How about go to school on Saturdays, that's the way our school dealt with it in a sensible way.

i guess we've all learned something since we were young. snow has some very negative drawbacks. i remember being young and thinking snow was the best thing in the world.

its not the areas its the individual districts. some schools will be closed and some will not. Im not saying that most central Arnkansas schools will be closing and taking away spring break, im just saying that my school and a few others might take away spring break because weve missed too many days.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that because school is not allowed to push it into July, they'll also start taking away from spring break.

I don't think they can rid of your break just because of that. It's not like you guys have anything to do with that.

man it sucks not havin' a spring break. a couple years back i had a major ice storm where i lived..we were out of school for about 2 weeks without electricity. our school had to add time on to the end of the day so we can stay at school longer.

You friggin' Americans and your school cancellations due to 10 cm of snow... Here in the Capitol of Canada our schools don't close. Period. The whole city has to be shut down before our schools close. You guys should toughen up to the weather.

Technically they can. It's just another way of making up some cancelled school days.
