The dates for Florida school holidays vary considerably between the different counties and it is beyond the scope of this website to try and present a schedule of dates for every county throughout the state.

However, when planning travel to Florida, a good rule of thumb is that most schools will break for the start of the summer recess around the first week of June and will resume studies again around the end of August.

The Florida Dept Of Education publish a detailed schedule of school district calendars on their website which lists specific dates for all the counties.
