    We live about an hour north of Atlanta. The school system where dh teaches special ed and dd is a middle school student is on a modified "extended school year". Dd had off for 9 weeks and returned to school August 3. Fall break is the third week in September and falls about half way between the beginning of the school year and the week off for Thanksgiving break.

    I am attaching a copy of an article which explains the theory behind it. Parents love it or hate it. Dh as a teacher loves having more frequent breaks from the kids. The stretch from beginning of January until spring break with no days off was always a real nail biter. All in all it is being done because of "No Child Left Behind".

Please send me a PM to let me know where you will be staying. We will be staying at Casa del Mar. Hope you are having a great summer.

    Karen
    Sorry Karen, I began the thread for all those who I knew were going to be there in November, but we will have to wait until Christmas. I would have loved to have met up with you and everyone else.

    LOL, dh only gets 3 personal days and our Christmas present to one another is flying non stop to Aruba rather than connecting through IAD AND staying an extra two nights in Aruba after the family leaves after Christmas.
