The Cobb County School System typically schedules 7 early release days throughout the year, as well as four additional early release days in October for elementary and middle school conference week.

Conference week for 2020 was canceled.  Conference week, which was originally scheduled for October 19th – 23rd, 2020, will now be regular full length school days.

During the 2020-2021 school year, early release days are:

  • October 19, 2020
  • October 20-23, 2020 (elementary and middle school only)
  • December 17-18, 2020
  • March 8, 2021
  • May 25-26, 2021

High School students are released at 11:30 am.

Elementary School students are released at 12:30 pm. After school programs begin just after dismissal.

Middle School students are released at 1:30 pm.

Bus Schedule on Early Release Days:
Busses typically begin their normal routes just after the early dismissal times for each school level. We recommend using the “Here Comes the Bus” app to track your child’s bus in real-time on a map.  You can download the app in the Apple or Google app store and then enter the Cobb County School District code 87881.

This information is current as of August 18, 2020, but the schedule is subject to change as the district adjusts to the current Covid-19 situation.
