Summer is flying by for students, parents and staff in Palm Beach County schools.

July 4th weekend marks the unofficial halfway point of summer — which means ice cream and days spent on the water will soon be replaced by early wake-up calls and back-to-school supply shopping.

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

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

Schools will have the same start times as usual this year, although a new law requires high school and middle school classes to start later starting in 2026. Palm Beach County school officials are considering three different proposals to move up start times for high school and middle school students.

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