This is a news release from Montgomery Public Schools.
In an effort to save money over the hot summer months, Montgomery Public Schools will change our operating hours for June and July to a four-day work week with each day being 9.5 hours long. This will apply to the central office and schools. In addition to saving money, parents and community members who work 8-5, will have an opportunity to take care of school business without having to take off from work.
The central office and satellites (who serve the public), and schools will be open from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. May 31 – July 30, Monday – Thursday.
Monday May 31 and Monday July 5 will be holidays during that period and offices and schools will be open Tuesday-Thursday of those weeks.
During the summer months, schools have minimal personnel on campus. While schools are scheduled to be open 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. May 31 – July 30, Monday – Thursday, those who wish to visit a school during that time, principals will be out of their buildings from time to time for vacation or professional development. It is always prudent to call a school before visiting to ensure it is open.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
