The four day week will apply in all school offices, including maintenance operations and the central office at the Board of Education. Exact starting and ending hours will vary slightly by location, but all school offices will be open Monday through Thursday and closed all day on Fridays.
Parents are encouraged to call the school office or check the school’s hours as posted on the school website if they plan to visit a school between June 17th and August 9th.
