School calendar: What's the first day? Also, holidays for 2024-25 in Palm Beach County


Summer is flying by for students, parents and school employees in Palm Beach County.

The Fourth of July weekend marks the unofficial halfway point of summer — which means popsicles and days spent on the water will soon be replaced by earlier alarms and shopping for school supplies.

But when does the new 2024-25 school year actually start for students in district-run schools? And when are the major breaks for students this year?

The upcoming school year will begin on Monday, Aug. 12 and end on May 30, 2025.

School start times will be normal this year, although a new law requires middle and high schools to begin later starting in 2026. Palm Beach County school leaders are weighing three different proposals to push back school start times for middle and high schoolers.

Here’s what else to know about the upcoming school year:

When is Palm Beach County’s first day of school 2024?

The first day of school is Monday. Aug. 12.

Teachers will have pre-school work days starting Aug. 5. No students will be on campus during those work days.

When is fall break 2024 for Palm Beach County schools?

Students will get two weekdays off in October.

They’ll be off Thursday, Oct. 3. Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset on Oct. 2 and ends at nightfall on Oct. 4.
