After all, the LPSS 2023 Christmas Break schedule didn't come without confusion as it began on a Wednesday (December 20th) and ended on a Tuesday (January 2nd) with an in-service day scheduled for Wednesday (January 3rd) instead of being off for two straight weeks. Plus, 2024 is a leap year, which means Christmas will be on a Wednesday this year instead of a Tuesday.

So, how will the Christmas Break schedule fall for 2024?

As you can see, Lafayette Parish public school students will return to being off for two straight weeks. After the 2nd Nine Week Period begins on Friday, December 20, students will be off from Monday, December 23, through Friday, January 3. But, LPSS students will get a bonus day, if you will, as an in-service day is scheduled for the following Monday, January 6, as students will not have to report to school.
