It actually depends on your break duration. |
If you're in one of those school districts that still puts one or two school days in the week of Thanksgiving, then your kids don't regain their eligibility.
According to the side by side, if you get a full calendar week off (Monday through Friday, plus at least two weekend days) then yes, 100% of your kids are eligible for that week. This would count as the described "fall break" in the document.
Letting your ineligibles go to a playoff game is entirely up to you. I can see both sides of the argument - but you get to decide that, or check your local policy.
This year we have a football team that is pretty good and slatted to go pretty far in playoffs. I've never been past the first round so I haven't had to deal with football this far. Are all student eligible for thanksgiving break? Am I reading that correct in the side by side? Do you guys let your failing kids go the playoff games during thanksgiving break?
