In public schools in New York State, we begin right after Labor day, in the
first week of Sept. We get a week off in Dec.(sometimes longer-this year
almost two weeks!), one in Feb., sometimes one in March (if Passover and
Easter do not fall in the same week) and one in April. We go until usually
the third week in June, although NY City schools don't get out until June
27th. On Long Island the last day is Fri, June 22nd. Susan on Long
