How is spring break already upon us?
We realized today that for most Tucson kids, it's coming up quick. As in, next week. Ahhhh!
If you're like us and haven't come up with a plan yet, don't panic. We've got some ideas.
Sorry we didn't get this out sooner for you families in the Sahuarita and Vail districts!
If you're wondering, TUSD, Sunnyside, Amphi and Marana districts all go on spring break March 18-22. Catalina Foothills is March 25-29 and Flowing Wells is April 15-19.
