Now several schools have changed the curriculum to incorporate a two week break from school at the best time in the calendar year to allow catching up and studying prior to testing. In our area that was early March. Maybe it’s a good idea to diversify the calendar with family time separate from the traditional “Spring Break” college crowd.
