Have most schools opted out of Spring break during Easter?

I'm sitting on several rentals for Easter week. The lack of interest from my ads on Redweek is surprising as I've been successful with these properties in the past. I thought it was due to the holidays and then February vacations but now it's later and I have to know by tomorrow what to cancel.

Someone told me today that school systems have gone to the last week of March and first week of April for Spring Break because they don't want to be linked to a religious holiday and their week will not fluctuate year to year.

Are you finding this is true? If you respond will you also note what state you've seen this?

Thank you

I haven't paid attention since my girls are no longer in school. But I took a look at the calendar for the Santa Fe Public Schools. For 2019/2020 Spring break is March 16 to 20. For 2020/2021 it is March 15 to 19. But for 2020/2021 there is also an Easter Break from Friday April 2 through Monday April 5.

Spring break for all of Washington State used to be the second week of April and for all of Oregon, the last week of March. Not sure is this is still true, as it's been awhile since I had kids in school. Spring break was never tied to Easter here. But the Pacific Northwest is suppose to be the most "un-churched region" in the country.

Most of my bi-coastal grands (NV and VA) have Spring Break the week before Easter (April 4-12) this year. My WA State grand's Spring Break is the week after Easter (like sun starved Gayle noted in above post).

Not true here in NY. It’s always tied to Easter here and they usually try to bridge it with Passover.

I've lived basically my entire adult life in two different college towns and in both cases our K-12 schools have followed the university's spring break, typically sometime during the first two weeks of March.

I'm from Arizona, but lived in Hawaii, Utah, and Colorado and spring break has never had anything to do with Easter in any of those states.

Here in Colorado there are 3 different weeks in March that Spring break is held.

I've got in laws in California and their spring break is always associated with Easter.

In Alabama, spring break is always in mid-March, so it has never been associated with Easter holiday. And believe me, if Alabama politicians, including school boards, can link anything to religion, they will.

A few in S and VA, a single resort in NC, MD, PA, and UT, plus Jamaica and the Bahamas
In our county in Maryland, Spring break is the week before Easter (when Easter is later) or the week after Easter (when Easter is in March). They try to keep it around the first full week in April but if Easter is very early or very late it misses that mark.

In all the time that my son was in middle school and high school in California, his spring break was always in March, never around Easter.

Arlington and Fairfax County public schools both close the week before Easter (April 6-10).

At least some of the parochial schools are off the week after Easter.

In Ohio some school districts still have the week of Easter but a number of them have the last full week of March as their Spring Break.

Here in Florida the schools in Broward County also have the last full week of March as their Spring Break.

On Long Island, our spring break coincides with Passover. Usually Easter is the same week, but occasionally it is not. On those years, we get Passover week and Good Friday off with Easter. If we don't use all our snow days, we get Easter Monday also.

spring break in rural Eastern North Carolina always corresponds to Easter. I hope that helps.

My girls were in California all through their school years. Their break was always the week before, or after, Easter.

We’re in California and our spring break is at the end of March or early April. If Easter occurs during that time it’s usually scheduled the week before Easter and our neighboring school district takes the week after Easter.

I checked for SoCal and at least 75% were in April. The remaining were late March. A good portion were either week of or week before Easter.

Most of Maine and some of Massachusetts have the week of President's Day off, and then the week of Patriots Day....3rd Monday in April. Feb break is usually to break up the flu cycle. April break we really get to enjoy! :)

Based on the various responses, it's seems the answer is "it depends on region you live in for when spring break occurs..."

We are usually the last week of March for grade school and high school (Indiana). Although some are the third week of March.

Yes, public schools usually stick to a fixed spring break week in their academic calendars. They don’t move it annually- it makes planning around it too hard.

Spring Break varies regionally however. Nationwide it goes from early March to mid April. Regions without a “winter break” will usually have spring break in mid March. East coast and west coast schools with a winter break of a week around Presidents Day(sometimes referred to as Ski week) will have their Spring Break later, like first 2 weeks of April.
