As you know, in Mexico, the school calendar consists of a total of 10 working months for the school year, which begins in August and ends in July of the following year, and two months of rest divided between winter and spring breaks, holidays and vacations between July and August.
These cycles are divided into three quarters: September-November, December-March and April-June, where students are scored with a macro assessment in each quarterly cycle, where the demands increase in level as the cycles progress and where newsletters are delivered to parents to check the progress of your children.
This calendar is applied for the cycles of primary, preschool, secondary and some secondary education institutions and is established by the Ministry of Public Education (SEP).
After the end of the vacations of the previous year, which come from June 24 to August 26, which will be the first day of classes.
Then you have the first break, which is the winter break during the last two weeks of December until the first week of January, where classes restart, in the same way as in most of Latin America, after the day of the Kings. Then there is the second break, which is the spring break during the first weeks of April.
However, also the dates of national and religious celebrations are respected, as is the case of carnival and Easter, which will take place in 2020 on February 24 and 25 (Monday and Tuesday) and Easter from April 6 to 12.
