Spring break starts on March 16th after parent teacher conferences and goes to the 20th, and most students cannot wait for it. Most students make plans for this break, such as a vacation or going to a few local events. To make students even more excited, Easter Break will go from April 14 to April 18. This is because Ava High School splits spring break into two breaks, which is something most schools do not do. Most schools have one weeklong Spring Break during March, and then a one day Easter Break.

I prefer this type of break because we have more days to enjoy off, and we also have a less severe schedule change as we transition from break to going back to school.”

— Alex Stevens

When Ava High School students were given a survey over the type of break they prefer, more than half of the students wanted the weeklong break. Kenzie Cain, a freshman at Ava High School, was one of those students. She said, “That way, if we have family out of the state, we could visit them.” Another anonymous student who agreed with this break said, “We get more time off and the teachers will be under less stress.”

However, some students felt the two short breaks were a good idea as well. One such student is Alex Stevens, whose response was, “I prefer this type of break because we have more days to enjoy off, and we also have a less severe schedule change as we transition from break to going back to school.”

Both student groups have very valid points on this particular subject, but the one thing they do agree on is this: everyone looks forward to a break, no matter the length or reason.
