PGCPS: 4-Day Work Week

Dear Parents/Guardians:

This memo is to inform you that Prince George's County Public Schools will operate a summer schedule based on a four-day work week. This schedule will apply to all schools and administrative offices within the system. The summer work schedule will begin on Monday, June 22, 2009, and end at the close of business on Friday, August 14, 2009. Schools and offices will be open Monday through Thursday, with extended work hours. Core business hours will be 7:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Parents/guardians should check the hours of operation for their child’s specific summer school program. All facilities will be closed on Fridays during this time. As recommended to the Board of Education and approved in the FY 2010 Operating Budget, the four-day summer work week is being implemented as a cost-saving strategy to reduce operating expenses and transportation costs. The four-day work week will also give parents, students and employees more flexibility and options for summer planning by extending the weekend to three days in lieu of the normal two day weekend. Any questions that you may have regarding the summer schedule should first be directed toyour child’s principal or the manager of the program in which your child will be enrolled. All other questions and concerns should be addressed to Dr. Betty Despenza-Green, Chief ofStudent Services, at 301-952-6384, or Dr. Diane Powell, Director of Student Services, at 301-567-5702.
William Hite
Interim Superintendent of Schools
