Marietta Schools, Facilities & Central Office
Four-day week starting June 7, closed Fridays
MARIETTA, GA -– Marietta City Schools (MCS) moves to its summer schedule four-day work week beginning June 7, 2013, with most facilities closing one day per week Fridays: June 7, 14, 21, 28, and July 12, and 19. All MCS facilities and schools will close Thursday, July 4 in observance of the Independence Day holiday. All MCS facilities return to a regular five-day workweek Monday, July 22, 2013.
“The school district observes a four-day work week energy conservation schedule during the summer,” said Dr. Emily Lembeck, MCS Superintendent. “MCS has used this schedule for a number of years and we have found that it is beneficial to the organization overall, without limiting the services provided.”
MCS 12-month employees continue to work 40-hours per week by extending each workday to 10 hours (Monday – Thursday) during the summer four-day workweek. The schedule change affects all locations except Marietta High School and Marietta Middle School, due to summer school operations. All other MCS school locations are open Monday through Thursday by appointment only and for deliveries.
The MCS central administrative offices, including the Department of Special Services, Transportation and Food Service office also follow the four-day week schedule. Regular operation hours at these locations are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
