SACRAMENTO, Calif. — President’s Day is a federally recognized holiday that usually impacts a government office more often than it impacts the local grocery store or restaurant. 

Here’s what to expect on President’s Day in Sacramento:

County services:

In Sacramento County, most offices will be closed for President’s Day. However, Sacramento County emergency services and the garbage and recycling services will continue as normal. 

The Sacramento County Office of Education, Sacramento Superior Court, and Sacramento County Public Libraries will be closed.

City Services:

The City of Sacramento recognizes President’s Day as a holiday and many offices will be closed. However, the regular residential garbage, yard waste, and recycling collections will still be going on.


“We follow federal holidays, so Bank of America branches will be closed on Monday,” said Colleen Haggerty, spokesperson for Bank of America in an email to ABC10. “However, customers can still access their funds online, with mobile banking and at ATMs every day at all times.”

Most banks will be closed in observance of the holiday. This includes Wells Fargo and Bank of America branches in the Sacramento area.


UC Davis will have a university holiday recognizing President’s Day.

Los Rio College District will also have no class in observance of the holiday and all offices will be closed. 

Post office

President’s Day is a postal holiday, so the post office will be closed.

Some school districts like Folsom Cordova Unified School District recognize President’s Day on the 18th and 19th and Elverta Joint Elementary School District has no school from Feb. 18 to Feb. 25.
