spring break is the end of march. universities in the area on the quarter system and most high schools/middle schools/elementary schools will have their spring break the last week, so the 23rd through the 31st. universities in the area on the semester system are the third week, which would be the 16th through the 24th. vary rarely, though it does happen, schools will have spring break the first week of april.
Also some schools (as far as I know it's only elementary, middle, and high school but it could be universities too) have mid-winter break in usually the middle to end of February. I know a school that has this and spring break in April.
President's Day Weekend is really not all that bad. My school went down there that weekend and we were able to get on absolutely everything we wanted to in two days, even with our recording session and watching the other bands play. Sure, there wasn't walk ons all day, but the lines were much less than I thought they would be.
Fear of the unknown.
They are afraid of new ideas.
They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based onÖ if something is new, I reject it immediately because itís frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar. You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.
Would the following weekend be better, feb 28 - march 3?
You would then get a weekend which is normally busy, but Thursday and Friday morning would be great. If you do it then you could pack rides in right away, then use the weekend to view the shows and depend on FP.
