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.
