Ask Elsie

EDITOR'S NOTE: Ask Elsie is a column where Chief Financial Officer Elsie Schiro tackles employee queries, or in areas outside her purview, asks other District leaders to answer them.

Dear Elsie,

I’m just wondering if the year-round employees will be working a four-day work week this summer like we did last year, and when it will start and end.

I loved it last year and would like a chance to make plans!

Thank you,


Dear Debbie,

Thank you for your question.

Many people have asked about our “summer schedule” involving the four-day work week. We are currently preparing a memo to share with all employees that will include all the details for this coming summer.

I can tell you that our first Friday off will be June 8. As soon as all the details are finalized, we will make sure everyone is provided with a copy of the memo. We will also be publishing those details right here in an upcoming edition of Inside FWISD.

Thanks again,
