Easter Vacation For Schools

E arly in December, a student asked me why we have Easter vacation for two weeks, but every other holiday has only one week. I explained that there have been many folks promoting this idea of spreading around all the vacation days so each class is given equal time off. However, the idea has never been accepted by the school board in our district, and never will be as far as I can tell. Why? S chool district officials say they feel more than one week off is unreasonable.The real answer, however, is because the school officials say so.Schools must consider if they will have classes or vacation on the Easter Day, in order to prepare appropriately. If it’s a Good Friday, then Easter Sunday is always a holiday. Schools have to close if they hold classes while Good Friday falls on a Friday or Saturday. Four-day weeks at schools are also common when Easter vacates classes in the latter part of March and into April.

We are just a handful of days from Easter, adults and parents can be ecstatic however the child is filled with anxiety and restlessness. His soul will be tired simply out of the long months he has been indoors, studying for his final exams for school.School holidays can be a lot of fun, or they can be incredibly boring if you’re not careful. Even if your school is open, you may ask yourself: “Where do I go?” and “What do I do?” Even worse, in colder countries the question might be: “Where do we stay warm?”
