Presidents Day celebrates people who have held the all-important office, especially George Washington, our first president.

U.S. stock exchanges will also be closed.

Here are some additional details about what to expect.

 will operate fully for the most part and its UPS store locations will be open.

Are banks open?

Banks are generally closed, according to, though you can always visit an ATM or use your banking app.

Are government offices open?

Since Presidents Day is indeed a federal holiday, all non-essential federal government offices are closed (and the same generally applies to state government offices).

Are schools open?

Schools are typically closed on Presidents Day, though some districts may use it as a makeup day for weather-related closures. It’s always best to check with your local school district.
