I am noticing on Facebook that many friends took mini-breaks this weekend. I know Gwinnett had a long weekend and apparently other counties took similar breaks as well.
Our schools are on a week-long fall break this week. But we don’t get a full week at Thanksgiving like many Georgia counties do. We only get Thursday and Friday so I guess that’s the trade-off.
A couple of years ago Gwinnett had such a nice schedule with a four-day weekend each quarter. (I think we didn’t get the spring four-day weekend due to make up days for the floods.) It was really something to look forward to and very refreshing I thought. It also gave you a chance to hit Disney World without all the crowds. Plus, you can go to the beach one last time and get the lower after-Labor Day rate!
So I am wondering, what kind of breaks do you like? Would you rather have a bunch of four-day weekends? Do you like the week at Thanksgiving so you could actually travel home? (You can’t travel just for four days unless your family lives just one-state over.) Or would you rather have this random week in the fall off?
Is your county having a fall break or just a long weekend? Did you go anywhere?
