Some schools in Maine still close for a week or two in the fall, around the end of September or beginning of October, to allow students to work in the potato harvest.

While it's definitely not an 'official' holiday, it's pretty par for the course for teachers to make *SURE* that they don't schedule tests on the first day of firearm deer season.
(way-back-when, we had some instructors who got on the case of some kids about 'sport' being so important, etc.  A few of the more seasoned instructors had to explain that for a lot of these people, it's less about 'sport', more about feeding their families)
