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.
