All The Omaha School Area Calendars 2024-2025

Omaha is home to more than 100 schools and several school districts. Most Nebraska school calendars are traditional, and run from Fall, through Winter, to Spring, with Summer vacation starting in either May or June. But each school district sets slightly different dates for the first day of school, for school breaks and vacations, and for the last day of school before summer break.

We’ve gathered a list of all the public school districts in Omaha and provided a link to their calendars. Plus we’ve added the dates from the biggest area school districts here for your convenience.

Public School Calendars in Omaha

If your children go to public school in the Omaha metro, we’ve got a link to their 2024-2025 school calendar in this list! As more districts announce their 24-25 calendars, more will be added to this list.

NOTE: We’ve made every effort to be sure the information we list is correct, but please double-check with each school to be sure. And as always, check with your child’s school regarding the bell schedule, when classes start, minimum days, early dismissal days, and other site-specific information.

Not every day off of school is listed for each school district, just major ones! For example, parent-teacher conferences are not listed. Please, refer to your district’s calendar for those additional days off of school.
