Poll: Should Mahwah Students Have a Week Off in February?
President’s week was cut down to two days thanks to Sandy, and school officials say the same two-day break schedule will likely be a part of next year’s school calendar
At a recent Board of Education meeting, Assistant Superintendent Janet Donohue said the proposed school calendar for next year nixes the weeklong February break from the get go.
“We found that [teachers, students and parents] weren’t too upset to see it go this year,” she said.
Though the 2013-14 school calendar has not yet been finalized, kids will likely have a repeat of this year’s Sandy-fied schedule, in terms of the February break.
So, Patch wants to know, what would you prefer? Think Mahwah students should get the whole week off, or is it kind of a waste? Should the President’s Day break be shorter, and kids have off other days throughout the year?
