Depending on the school district, summer break might extend anywhere from six to fourteen weeks, or 42 to 98 days. The National Center for Education Statistics estimates that there are 180.4 days in a typical school year.
The length of summer break depends on the region of the United States where the school is located. While southern states often dismiss students in late May and subsequently resume in late August, most schools in northern areas celebrate summer vacation beginning in early June and lasting until early September.
The majority of schools offer their children a day or two off in November to celebrate Thanksgiving and another day or two in December to celebrate Christmas. Breaks throughout the spring and fall are typically observed as well.
