Racine Unified School District is switching to a four-day work week for the rest of the summer, "in an effort to conserve energy while reducing district costs as well as decrease commuting expenses for employees."
The district will be "piloting" a summer hours program for summer clerical and administrative staff from Monday, July 7, through Aug. 1. During this time, district departments will be open longer Monday-Thursday and closed on Fridays. The extended Monday through Friday hours will be determined by the individual departments, and families are encouraged to contact departments in advance for available hours.
The longer hours Monday-Thursday will also assist working families as many district departments will be open later so parents may receive services after normal working hours. Families that have a need on Fridays should call the district's main number at (262)635-5600.
