• Summer Hours 2019

  • ONE-WEEK CLOSURE: JULY 1-5, 2018

    Atlanta Public Schools will be closed the week of July 1-5, 2018. Since the Fourth of July is a holiday, all 12-month employees will be required to use accumulated annual leave for July 1, 2, 3, and 5, 2019. For full-time employees, this would require the use of four days of annual leave.

    An employee who does not have enough annual leave to cover July 1, 2, 3, and 5, must use personal leave to cover any annual leave shortage.
