Students in Canyon ISD can take a few days off thanks to the fall break scheduled for Oct. 5 through Oct. 9. 

Students will have a five-day break while teachers will have a four-day break starting Oct. 6. Teachers will have campus in-service day Thursday, Oct. 5. Students will still be held accountable for absences if they do not come to school the three days before the break.

“We think it comes at a great time,” principal Tim Gilliland said. “The stretch from Labor Day to Thanksgiving was always really hard, so the fall break was added to break things up and keep students and teachers fresh.”
