ST. GEORGE — For the sixth consecutive summer, Dixie State College has transitioned to a four-day work schedule for the summer.

Through Aug. 5, most college employees will work from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.

The schedule cuts down on energy and air conditioning costs. The college's executive director of business services, Scott Talbot, estimates that the four-day workweek has saved the college nearly $40,000 in utility expenses each year in past years.

Some buildings and offices remain open on Fridays, and Friday classes continue to be held.
