Students are enjoying their last days of summer break before returning to the classroom as school districts are quickly approaching the start of the 2022-23 year.

Students at some schools begin the third week of August, while others start the third and fourth weeks of the month, and only one district starts in September.

Many districts have separate start dates for preschool and kindergarten students versus grades 1 through 12. In those cases, preschool and kindergarten kids often start a few days later than the rest of the school. Check your individual school district’s calendar for details.
