The Hillsborough County Schools tentative student calendar (shown here) will go before the School Board for final approval in the spring. The Pinellas County School Board will discuss proposed student calendars at an impromptu workshop before Tuesday's 5 p.m. board meeting.

It's never too early to plan for summer vacation.

The Pinellas County school district has added a workshop before Tuesday's 5 p.m. board meeting to discuss proposed calendar options for the 2017-18 school year. That workshop will take place at 3:30 p.m. at the district's headquarters in Largo.

District spokeswoman Lisa Wolf said the workshop wasn't advertised before because no more workshops were scheduled for the rest of the 2016 year. The draft calendar itself isn't posted yet, and Wolf didn't give an estimate on when it would be posted.

The Gradebook will update this post when the calendar is posted.

Students and school staff had an unusually short summer this year, as the district decided to wrap up the end of this school year by Memorial Day. That meant schools had to start earlier (Aug. 10) to finish by May 25, 2017.

The photo above is Hillsborough's tenatative student calendar for 2017-18. Let's see if Pinellas and Pasco will also start Aug. 10 and finish May 25.
