Florida Public School Calendars

As a parent, the question we ask toward the end of summer is, "when do you go back to school?" So here is a simple listing of the biggest dates for each school district to help you out. This Florida School Calendar shows the major days off of school and does not include teacher workdays or minor holidays.

We actively work to update this list. Please remember that due to un-expected circumstances such as hurricanes and possible changes in the pandemic closures, dates are subject to change.  2021-2022 school calendar dates are added below based on the calendar from the individual Florida school districts. This date is subject to change so please be in direct contact with your school or school district for the latest updates and to verify dates. 

COVID update

Feb 2022 update: While the schools were required (after the long drawn out dispute between the schools and Gov. DeSantis) to lift mask requirement and allow students to opt-out of mask wearing, many schools are still strongly recommending them. As tensions about COVID eases and schools try to get back to normal, DeSantis is not moving forward to normality. Instead, he is agressively trying to remove funding from schools who were trying to protect the health and safety of their students. Most parents in the state of Florida just want to get back to normal, not continue the fight. And schools are moving forward in the best interest of the children and the families. Let's encourage our Governor do the same. Taking away funding is NOT in the best interest of anyone, particularly the children. 

Many schools are also removing the exemption for excused absences for COVID. Meaning extended absences are no longer excused. This measure is to prevent too many absences as students and teachers try to maintain attendance and regularity. See COVID updates timeline below the list for the last update. 

The schools that have COVID information on their websites is shared below. Contact your school district for more details.
