Summer break will soon come to an end for students attending Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) year-round modified calendar schools. More than 2,700 students at the four BCPS year-round campuses head back to the classroom on Wednesday, August 9, 2017.

More time off during the traditional calendar school year means a shorter summer break for students at Colbert Museum Magnet, Lake Forest Elementary School, Watkins Elementary School and McNicol Middle School.

“The success of our students begins with being in school on the first day and every day, on time and ready to learn,” said BCPS Superintendent Robert W. Runcie. “We are proud to provide our students with high-quality and innovative educational experiences, and look forward to welcoming students and families in our year-round schools to another successful school year.”

The first day of school for most BCPS students on the traditional school year calendar is Monday, August 21, 2017.
