In June, Dr. Blake informed the campus about alterations being made to our Fall 2020 Academic Calendar to allow instruction to end at Thanksgiving in order to mitigate the risk of the COVID-19 virus being spread as students leave campus for various locations and then return. While the greatest impact will be upon students in that they will not have three days of Thanksgiving Break that they would usually have, the normal Thanksgiving Wednesday schedule for staff will also be impacted. Rather than the work day ending at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, it will conclude at 5:30 p.m. Staff will need to be available to support faculty and students and to ensure that all operations continue for that three hour period.
The work schedule changes are indicated below in bold.
Monday 11/23/2020 9 hours work
Tuesday 11/24/2020 9 hours work
Wednesday 11/25/2020 9 hours work
Thursday 11/26/2020 8 hours holiday
Friday 11/27/2020 5 hours holiday
The trade-off to working additional hours on the day before Thanksgiving, is that we will be able to reduce the number of comp time hours/vacation time required to be used during the holiday break from 5 hours to 2 hours. Please see the revised holiday break work schedule below with the changes indicated in bold.
