Each year I update this post to make it relevant for the upcoming Thanksgiving and Winter Break parenting time. Holiday parenting time is often a source of confusion, and this year (like last) is complicated because there are two sets of guidelines that may apply. For information about which set of guidelines apply, please see my general Parenting Time Guidelines page.

These times are consistent with the Carmel Clay School Corporation academic calendar. For links to your school system calendar see my "Indiana Schools" page which offers information about all Indiana school corporations. Please note that the holiday parenting time is controlled by when a child gets out of school, therefore, your situation may not follow this interpretation. To discuss this further please contact me.
