A four-day week is an arrangement where a workplace or school has its employees or students work or attend school over the course of four days rather than the more customary five.
Public schools in Hawaii closed on 17 Fridays in 2010. Over 100 school districts in rural areas in the United States changed the school week to a four-day week; most also extended each school day by an hour or more. The changes were often made in order to save money on transportation, heating, and substitute teachers.
