Lutz Veterans Day Closings

Most government offices and schools will be closed Monday, Nov. 12 in observance of the Veterans Day holiday. Some facilities, however, will open their doors.

Veterans Day is just around the corner and that means Lutz residents should be prepared for a number of closings around town and throughout Hillsborough County.

While the holiday falls on Sunday, Nov. 11, it’s officially observed on Monday, Nov. 12. Veterans Day is a federal holiday, which means mail service won’t run and most government offices will be closed.

Here’s a rundown of what's open and what's closed on Veterans Day in Hillsborough County:


The Hillsborough County school district does observe Veterans Day on Nov. 12. That means the kids here don’t have to hit the books. Take note though; Pasco schools are open on Monday. Kids who attend classes at Lutz, Pasco schools should expect to report for that first bell Monday morning.

Hillsborough County Closings

The county does observe Monday as a holiday. That means all administrative offices, neighborhood service centers, libraries, Head Start facilities, recreation centers, nutrition sites and senior centers won’t open their doors on Monday.

Residents worried the holiday will interrupt their trash pickup services can relax. The county’s solid waste collection services will run as normal on Nov. 12. This includes garbage, yard waste and recyclable pickups for unincorporated Hillsborough, including Tampa Palms, New Tampa and Hunter’s Green.

The county’s landfills, community collection centers, transfer facilities and the Resource Recovery Facility are also open.

What’s Open on Monday?

While a lot of Hillsborough County workers will get the day off on Monday, that’s not the case across the board. A few agencies will stay open, including emergency services, such as police, fire and ambulance.

Hillsborough County Animals Services is planning a special promotion on Monday, Nov. 12. Dubbed Pets For Vets, the promotion runs from 11 a.m. 5 p.m. During this time, all active or retired military personnel will get half-off pricing for pet adoptions at the county’s 440 N. Falkenburg Road location.

The county’s regional parks are also open on Monday. They include Lettuce Lake, Lake Park, Aldermans Ford, Edward Medard, Flatwoods, Lithia Springs, Morris Bridge and Lake Rogers, among others.
