2. MFS students get a three-day weekend in October when the school takes off for fall break on Oct. 8. 

3. MTPS students get off Tuesday, Nov. 6, for a teacher in-service (it's also Election Day), and then enjoy a four-day weekend from Nov. 8-11 for the New Jersey Education Association Convention.

Hey patch, if you're going to tell us about the private schools calendar mfs, why not include the two catholic schools too like olgc and st Charles ?

Green stash, That's a good point. OLGC has a calendar on its website, but it's not in a form that's easily transferable (for our format). I'll see if I can get calendars for both schools. Once I do, I'll post them on the site. Thanks for the suggestion.
