• Summer Hours 2020

  • ONE-WEEK CLOSURE: JUNE 29 - JULY 3, 2020

    Atlanta Public Schools will be closed the week of June 29 - July 3, 2020. Since the Fourth of July is a holiday, all 12-month employees will be required to use accumulated annual leave for June 29, 30, July 1, and 2, 2020. 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 June 29, 30, July 1, and 2, must use personal leave to cover any annual leave shortage.

  • Plan ahead and conserve your leave, as employees who do not have enough annual or personal leave will see a deduction in their paychecks* for these days on July 15, 2020, and July 31, 2020.

    *Employees hired after March 1, 2020, will have days loaned to them.

    APS will operate on a four-day workweek for three weeks during summer 2020. Employees will be scheduled to work 9.5 hours per day, for three days, and 9 hours on the fourth day.

    June 22-25 (closed Friday, June 26)

    July 7-10 (closed Monday, July 6)

    July 13-16 (closed Friday, July 17)

    After this period of summer hours, leave will be restricted for essential employees between July 27 and August 10 as we all prepare for Day One 2020.


    NOTE: Departments will have the flexibility to assess their summer work and determine if annual employees need to work during the district closures.


    During the four-day workweeks, all District offices will be open for business from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. As long as all work hours are covered each day, Supervisors may work with employees to establish individual work schedules within the following options:
