TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Summer vacation for students may have just started but Toledo Public Schools is tweaking the back to school schedule already.

TPS said on Thursday that district schools will now be closed on Friday August 17. The reason behind this is so that all staff members can have a Professional Development Day that Friday.

This means the first day of school for students will be Monday August 20th.

Below is a list of all dates TPS wants you to take note of:

  • Thursday, August 16: Teacher Workday (no students); Elementary Open House Night
  • Friday, August 17: Teacher Professional Development Day (no students); staff members report
  • Monday, August 20: All high school freshmen report for a full day and all elementary students report for a half day; all staff members report
  • Tuesday, August 21: Full day for all students (including the rest of the high school students); TPS Career Tech busing and Option IV programming begins
