About Durham Year Round School Calendars

Below we summarize and link to current calendar. Durham Public Schools (DPS) has five public year round schools which enroll about 3,300 students. The year round schools are:

  • Holt Elementary
  • Pearsontown Elementary
  • Easley Elementary
  • Rogers-Herr Middle School
  • School for Creative Studies Middle School

Track out lasts three weeks after the end of each session except for the final session which features a five week track out (aka “summer vacation”). The official calendars refer to these breaks as “intersession” breaks. Most parents and camp operators call them track out breaks.

Note About Wake

Note that Wake County Public School System has four different year round calendars. Each student is assigned to a “Track” 1-4. The intersession breaks are staggered so that one (and only one) track will be out at any given time. I’ll post about that separately.
