Supervisors are encouraged to adopt a liberal leave policy during holiday periods to accommodate employee requests, as long as essential services continue to be provided. We recognize that due to business necessity some departments may be required to be open and will not be able to observe scheduled holidays. In those instances, essential college employees who must work on a holiday should be given adequate advance notice for personal planning purposes. Questions regarding the provision of essential customer services should be directed to your respective vice chancellor.

Should the Governor grant further additional holiday time during the year, Human Resources will disseminate this information. If you have questions regarding this schedule, please call Stephanie Perry at ext. 0240,  Francene Meade at ext. 0142 or Debbie Vanover at ext. 1067.
