Is my school open on Presidents Day? It depends on where you live

Monday is George Washington's birthday, a federal holiday also known as Presidents Day. But Tampa Bay area school districts have varying schedules for the day, according to their websites and published calendars.

Monday will be a regular school day in the Hillsborough and Pasco county school districts. Hillsborough students will be released one hour early, as is typical on Mondays.

The Hernando County school district will be closed Monday for students and staff.

In Pinellas County, students have the day off but administrators will report to work, as will most teachers. Teachers can use the day for planning or they can take a "trade day," typically used to make up for time spent in training sessions. Pinellas school bus drivers, dispatchers and food service workers have the day off.
