School Division to Institute Summer Hours

Again this year, in an effort to save money in utility costs, Fauquier County Public Schools will institute a four-day work week for employees who work during the summer.

From June 3 through August 2, FCPS employees will work on an extended schedule Monday through Thursday – from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. – and all FCPS buildings, including the School Board Office, will be closed on Fridays.

There are two exceptions to the schedule. The first week of July, which includes the Fourth of July holiday, will be a three-day work week; offices will be closed Thursday and Friday, July 4 and 5, and will be open Monday, July 1, Tuesday, July 2, and Wednesday, July 3.

The final four-day work week will be the week beginning July 29; that four-day work week will be Tuesday, July 30, through Friday, Aug. 2, in order to give employees a four-day weekend July 26-29.
