Atlanta School Start Dates for 2017

Can't believe it is already time for the kids to head back to school!  It just seems like yesterday that the Summer solstice began. Now we are hearing rumblings of school supply shopping, student orientations, and oh yes, let’s not forget the dreaded Atlanta traffic once all schools are in session! Summer break will be in the rear view mirror for most of us come the end of July. As we enjoy the last few weeks of Summer break, below we have provided a handy guide to Metro Atlanta school start dates by school district, as well as the Fall break schedules for the 2017-2018 school year.
