Why doesn't Madison County cancel spring break?

I went to Rockcastle, and when they had a large number of snow days we didn't get federal holidays or spring break off from school, so that the kids didn't have to go halfway through summer break if at all possible. The current day for the last day of school is June 7th, and since they are closed tomorrow too, it will change to the 8th, and they have a full five day spring break scheduled. I am beyond confused and slightly ticked off about this. Anyone else?

Yep, me too.
I've heard before the reason they won't let spring break go is because of the parents and teachers that have reservations made for their vacations. I have no idea if that's true or not.

It would make sense to me to give up spring break to get out of school earlier for the summer.

I have reservations and refuse to loose my $300. deposit. School can continue on that week but my child won't be there. They have gone to school later than that in past years.

It's because of spring break plans. Parents and teachers make plans months in advance and they know attendance would be lower than usual during that week

Berea HS students usually go out of State or out of the Country during Spring Break. The travel expenses can be pricey so theres no way I'd pay a couple thousand and than miss it. Crazy! The kids can go a bit longer in the summer.

even though i hate having to go untill june. i want my spring break. it's something to look forward to exspecially those of us who have plans. i believe they should add 15 minutes extra a day not only student but all employees to. what i want to know is how all the surrounding counties get out earlier than we do and they miss a whole lot more than we do.
OK here it is

According to the revised schedule (2-16-10), last day for students is June 4th and teachers/staff is June 7th. This may or may not change due to no school on 2-17-10. There is still a Spring Break.

Surrounding counties usually start school around August 1st and allow for extra snow days by starting 2-3 weeks early.

Yeah, because everyone knows that telling your kids that a $300 deposit trumps her education is one of the reason's our public schools suck, because parent's attitudes suck.

Apparnetly it hasn't affected my older children who have college degrees and wonderful jobs. My money or vacation doesn't have anything to do w/the reason the schools suck. You can blame your lawmakers for the curriculum. My children work/worked hard on their education and deserve a week at the beach as a reward. Whether you like it or not....

I think they should take spring break but they won't because parent and teacher have made plan to take a vacation I think should have a understanding if we miss more than 5 days of school we will lose some or part of spring break. When I was in school we lost our spring break a lot because missing days Every should Write Mr. Lacky I think he the only one on the Madison County School that might listen

Why do we even have spring break in high school? We didn't have it back in the 70's and 80's. All it does is cause this problem. I say no need for spring break. You don't get one in the real world, unless you work for our highly efficient educational system. By the way, what's Kentucky's national ranking in education?

I say keep them in and teach them something. A good start would be how to figure exact change for a purchase, or how to write an understandable sentence (without a bunch of texting abbreviations).
