Clayton County Students Head Back to School
Seems like summer just started a few short weeks ago and now it’s already time for Georgia students to head back to class.
The first day of school for Clayton County students is Monday August 7, 2017. Parents are loading up on school supplies, and students are putting together their “first day back” outfits. Clayton County Public Schools is the 5th largest school district in Georgia, serving over 50000 diverse students just south of metro Atlanta.
