WHEN PUPILS/ STUDENTS GO BACK TO SCHOOL:
In the USA, there is not a single day to start the new school year for all schools. Each state and each school may have different start dates for the new school year. However, schools usually start the school year right after Labor Day. Besides, more schools choose to start the new school year at the end of July or August. For example, in San Diego Unified School District, San Diego, California, the first day of school for the 2017-18 school year was set to August 28.
