#ModifiedMonday is every Monday


In the 2018-19 school year, the district’s weekly schedule will continue to support the ongoing professional development for Peoria Unified’s 4,000 employees. On Mondays, students will be released two hours early from their originally scheduled dismissal. This schedule begins on Monday, Sept. 10, 2018 and will occur every Monday for the remainder of the school year. 


In response to feedback from parents and employees, the Governing Board approved a schedule to reflect consistency in lieu of sporadic releases or full-day observances. Peoria Unified will still observe the same traditional holiday/break schedule our community has come to expect.


To accommodate child care needs during the Modified Mondays, the district offers a KidZone program for students attending a school located in Glendale. The district also has a partnership with the city of Peoria to offer the AM/PM program to students attending Peoria schools. Learn more about both programs here.


Throughout the year parents can receive reminders, as well as share in the collaborative efforts of our staff professional development, through our social media channels using #ModifiedMonday. The complete 2018-19 calendar can be viewed here.
