Remember that local schools will observe a four-day week during July— from Monday, July 1, to Friday, July 19, returning to a normal Monday-to-Friday schedule on July 22. Schools will be closed on the following Fridays: July 5, July 12, and July 19. On Thursday, July 4, all schools and locations will be closed for the Independence Day holiday. The four-day week affects all programs at the local school, including enrichment camps and other activities. The energy-saving schedule saves money as thermostats are set warmer for the three-day weekends, and lights are switched off.
