Does UCSD have a Thanksgiving Break?

I was looking at the academic calendar for UCSD and noticed that the "breaks" listed are only two days, mainly the actual holiday and the day after. I found that the winter breaks are a couple weeks through some googling but could not find how long the Thanksgiving breaks are, if there is one. Can anyone help with this?

    For the UC’s, the official Thanksgiving Break is Thursday, Friday and the weekend. It will depend upon your class schedule and your professors which might not have class Tuesday/Wednesday before the Holiday making it anywhere from a 4 day weekend up to a 6 day weekend/break. Both my son’s planned to leave school on Wednesday before Thanksgiving if possible to come home for the Holiday.

    It's a little tough not always knowing ahead of time if you can leave on the Wednesday before. My sons at UCs have often flown home on Thanksgiving Day because of this. If you will need to fly, you are smart to make your reservation now because flights close to Thanksgiving fill up fast.
