Both my DS are off, probably best to check with school as they all differ... as I found this week
I planned on doing loads with kids only to realise one DS was only off Monday & Tuesday.

As far as I can make out secondary schools only had one discretionary day this year and most opted for either December 8 or March 16. I think primarys were the same.
Not saying that's the case for everybody but any school I know of that worked December 8 is off in March and vice versa!
Answers:

Not in our case, DS's primary school was off on December 8th and is also off on March 16th.
DD1's secondary school was off on December 8th, but is not off on March 16th. Yet another time when we cannot go anywhere as a family because one is off and the other isn't. Whatever happened to coordinated school closures?
Answers:
We're in that day too
Answers:
My three are off
Answers:
Ds1 off ( secondary ) Ds2 in school ( primary )
Answers:
For this mid term primary schools either closed for the entire week or else just for 2 days. If the school only closed for 2 days they then have 3 floating days left which they can take whenever they want.
My school is open March 16th
Answers:

Answers:

Ah, but DD was off all last week too (but in on 8th December). Looks likes I'll have to review the birthday party . Thanks everyone
Answers:
I had this discussion with my sister earlier. I was telling her my kids are in school, but she convinced me they were off because the 16th was a bank holiday, but it's definitely not on our school calander.
The 16th is DH's birthday, the 17th is DD2's birthday and her DD's is the 14th, so we're going to have a 3 in 1 party
Answers:

It's not, unfortunately
Answers:
DD's school is closed the 16th.

I knew that Holly
Ours are finishing up on the 24th of June for the summer and they were off on the 8th of December, so I don't mind too much. It'll means DH is working on his birthday though
