Tell Us: February Break Vacation Plans

Sandy cancelled vacation plans for many. How did it effect you?

Presidents' Week tends to be a high season for travel. Unlike surrounding vacations, there are no major religious holidays in February where people tend to stay home.

Like most other districts on Long Island and the tristate area, Syosset School District and St. Edward the Confessor School edited their calendars after Hurricane Sandy caused class cancellations.

Instead of a full week of vacation, classes resumed Tuesday for Syosset students and will resume Wednesday for St. Edward the Confessor students. Our Lady of Mercy Academy students still have the week off.

Did you plan a vacation for February break that you had to cancel or postpone? Did you book it before or after the hurricane? Did you cancel altogether or go on vacation anyway?

Thanks to the Syosset and Roslyn Schools, we were forced to cancel our vacation plans. We were cruising with a large group; which only 10 were able to go (thanks to Jericho and the NYC Dept of Ed.). We were flying down to Florida on American Airlines. American was more than fair. They gave us an additional year from the date of cancellation to use the funds, without any penalty. We were flying Delta on the return and sad to say, they were not accommodating at all. They are only giving us a year from the date of purchase (May15) to use the funds or we will lose the full purchase price of the ticket. I just don't know why the school districts didn't utilize many of the vacation days available over the winter break. I do believe many more people vacation during Feb. than during the holiday season. But, what is done, is done! I hope for a better year next year :)
