PARKLAND, FL- Parkland and Broward County residents are enjoying the idea of a Thanksgiving break. A couple of weeks ago, the Broward County School Board sent out a request for input on the 2021-2022 school calendar. An overwhelming margin of responses chose the option to have a full week off at Thanksgiving again next year. 

The 2021-2022 school year will begin on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, and conclude on Thursday, June 9, 2022.

Around 70% of the 54,000 responses chose the week-long Thanksgiving break option. The other two options were to begin the year a few days later or have the last day of school a few days earlier.
