ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Summer vacation has come to an end for some elementary school students in metro Atlanta. Monday is the first day of the new school year for some year-round schools.

Atlanta Public Schools has three schools that are on the year-round schedule:  Boyd, Hutchinson and Centennial Place Elementary schools. One charter school in Clayton County, Elite Schools Academy, also starts class today.

The schools had a six-week summer vacation, instead of the 10-12 week vacation that  traditional schools typically get. The year-round schools usually have longer breaks throughout the school year that make up the difference.
