More Days Off Next Year

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 17 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

This comes as welcome news for everyone at Mines, I’m sure. Starting next school year, we will receive an extra three days of break spread throughout the year; all without pushing back the end of school.

How? As I understand it, we’re only required to be in class xxx amounts of days a year. As it currently stands, we’re above that number, so we can take the extra days off without any ill effects.

So, what days do we get off?

  • A Tuesday has been added to extend Fall Break. Fall Break will now encompass Saturday through Tuesday, Oct. 13-16, with classes resuming on Wednesday.
  • The Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Nov. 21, has been designated a non-class day. Thanksgiving Break is Nov. 22-25.
  • The Monday in February that aligns with Presidents’ Day, Feb. 18, is also now a non-class day.
