Sun shines Saturday on Robins School Administration Building, the main administration building for Havre Public Schools. The Havre District Board of Trustees will hear proposals for four school calendars next year including two options using four-day school weeks.

The Havre Public Schools Board of Trustees will look at options to implement a four-day school week for the coming school year at their board meeting Tuesday, a subject of much discussion among teachers and the public.

The proposals, created by HPS' Calendar Committee after months of research and discussion, would extend school-day length while eliminating most or all Fridays for students, though most teachers would use the days for things like lesson planning and professional development.

Two options being presented include four-day school weeks and two are for five-day school weeks.
