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.  2020-2021 school calendar dates are added below based on the calendar from the individual 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-19 update

Florida Schools were ordered to reopen in the fall by an executive order issued in early July. In order to reopen, schools must submit their plan detailing precautions amid the pandemic. 

Most districts are offering options giving parents the choice to continue virtual learning or to attend school following safety guidelines. Parents have options so visit your school district or school website and be sure to make a selection.

Many districts have delayed the start date till the end of August. A few, particularly in South Florida, are starting on time completely virtual for the first few weeks. 

Note: the schools are doing their best to navigate coronavirus. Please understand this is something no one has ever had to work with so it is new for everyone and it can change from day to day. Let's stay united and show patience and understanding toward each other.
