Aromas of turkey roasting and pies baking will permeate the air for Thanksgiving — and that means no school for students across the Fort Worth area.

Most districts have the entire week of Thanksgiving off, but a couple start the break days earlier.

Here are the dates to remember:

  • Nov. 16: Student holiday in Aledo ISD
  • Nov. 17: Student holiday in Aledo ISD, early dismissal in Castleberry ISD
  • Nov. 20-24: Thanksgiving break in the Aledo, Burleson, Castleberry, Crowley, Everman, Eagle Mountain-Saginaw, Fort Worth, Hurst-Euless-Bedford, Keller, Lake Worth, Northwest and White Settlement school districts 
  • Nov. 27: Class resumes
