    Paris Jackson will be spending the holidays with her family.

    The 15-year-old has been released from her Utah boarding school for the Christmas break and is flying to Hawaii on Saturday, Dec. 21, E! News can exclusively confirm.

    This is the first time Paris has left Utah since her reported suicide attempt on June 5. She was admitted to the boarding school in July.

    Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe's daughter will join her brothers, Prince and Blanket, her guardian TJ, many of her cousins and a fleet of bodyguards for the Hawaiian vacation.

    "The family doesn't want Paris to spend her entire winter break at home because they don't want her getting comfortable," a source reveals to E! News. "The family thinks Paris will try to talk her way into staying home after showing the family she's gotten better."

    Paris has remained in close contact with her family since being admitted to the boarding school. She skypes with her grandmother Katherine Jackson and brother Prince every week.

    After the getaway, Paris will spend some time at her grandma's home in Calabasas before heading back to Utah.

    The 83-year-old Jackson family matriarch told Hello! magazine, per the Daily Mail in August that Paris is "doing much better" and her treatment is "going good, really good."

    Before her hospitalization in Los Angeles for her reported suicide attempt, Paris was an active presence on Twitter. Her mother tweeted on her behalf in July: "My daughter has asked that I extend a huge thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers and support," Rowe wrote. "She is strong like her father."
