End-of-Year Extended College Closure Dates
As noted in a message from Biddy, the College will shut down the week of December 27, 2021. The result is an additional four days of paid time off (Monday, December 27, through Thursday, December 30) for staff, plus the previously scheduled holidays on Friday, December 24, and Friday, December 31. While the previous week, December 20-23, will remain a work week, we are encouraging those who wish to have a longer break, or who must work during the shutdown, to use their accrued time off then. As always, staff should consult with their supervisor/department chair for scheduling approval.
Although we will minimize the need for work during the shutdown, staff members who must work then—for one-time needs like Workday and preparation for “J-term,” plus essential staff in dining, custodial services, and other areas—will receive closure pay, which is equal to (2x) pay for non-exempt hourly employees and equivalent time off for exempt employees. Supervisors will work with those impacted to make alternative arrangements.
