Upcoming School Holidays in Pleasanton

Only about 80 full school days left this year. Find out when you'll need to plan for days off and spring break.

If you're like me, you grab those school calendar magnets at back-to-school registration like they're gold and refer to them constantly to sync your schedule with the many school holidays that seem to pop up when you least expect them.

Lord knows the kids won't mention it until the last minute. And pray you're not the parent who shows up to an empty school parking lot.

Just this morning I discovered an extra school holiday. Feb. 11 is just "x'd" out as "holiday" along with the 18th, which is the actual President's Day. So why are we off the 11th? My kid has no idea.

If you can't find your magnet or you want an extra copy of the sked to print out and tuck in your planner, here's the 2013 Pleasanton Unified School District calendar.

And here are the rest of the key dates you'll need to know:

March 14 and March 15 — Minimum day conferences

March 29-April 5 — Spring Break

May 27 — Memorial Day

June 14 — Last day/Minimum day

Kari -how long have you been part of PUSD? We always have both Mondays off in February. One is Presidents Day the other is classified as something, but was actually the 2nd president's birthday observation before we combined Washington and Lincoln's birthdays into one Presidents Day. These kids get too many days off. We are one of the only districts I know that has Good Friday off, though we can't call it that anymore.

I've been here seven years, but I can never keep track of days off as there always seem to be new ones. Here's an interesting article about the shrinking of the school calendar in 2010 due to budget cuts. http://californiawatch.org/k-12/majority-states-largest-districts-shrink-school-calendar-amid-budget-crisis

Another article and another grammar/spelling error. Is this really the best Pleasanton can do? Pull out a dictionary or go to one online. It's really bad that those of us that emphasize proper writing skills among our children and teens have to warn them that the "writers" on Pleasanton Patch can't write. SMH.
