With all the El Paso-area school districts now following a year-round school calendar, students get more breaks throughout the year leaving parents to find ways to keep their kids busy and out of trouble for anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks.

To help you plan for their time off, I checked district calendars to find out when the first extended intersession of the school year happens and found most students get time off from studies at the beginning of October.

The first extended intersessions of the school year will happen at the beginning of October, leaving parents to find ways to keep their kids busy and out of trouble for anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks. The majority of students begin their first extended intersession of the school year on Oct. 4 returning to school on Oct. 18. "Only two weeks? I wish the break was longer," said no parent ever.

Below are the upcoming fall intersession dates – and in some cases added staff development days – for each of the El Paso-area school districts. Click on the school district header to view the district calendar to reference holidays, parent-teacher conferences, and grading periods coming up.
