Reduced pool hours in effect for Prairie Village, Fairway starting Monday

The countdown to the official end of summer is on.

Starting today, local public pools are adopting shortened schedules as kids — and lifeguards — head back to school.

The Prairie Village municipal pool will be open 4:30-8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

In Fairway, the pool will be closed Monday through Thursday. It will be open 4-8 p.m. Friday, and 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Both the Fairway and Prairie Village pools will be open for the final time of the season on Labor Day, Sept. 3.
