What is the holiday schedule for December 2010?

Kent State once again will implement a holiday schedule in December. The holiday schedule will run from the first shift on Friday, Dec. 24, 2010, through Jan. 1, 2011. During that time all nonessential operations will be closed at all Kent State campuses. Regular university operations will resume with the start of the first shift on Sunday, Jan. 2, 2011.

This year the Christmas and New Year's holidays fall on a Saturday. Classified and unclassified employees will receive paid leave for three days, Dec. 28, 29 and 30. The paid leave is in addition to the paid holidays of Dec. 24, 27 and Dec. 31.

The holiday schedule applies to classified and unclassified employees who normally accrue vacation throughout the year. Employees not eligible for the paid leave includes student employees, classified temporary staff, temporary agency staff, unclassified nine- and 10-month term appointments, short-term unclassified assignments and employees in a lay-off status. It does not apply to faculty, whether they are on a nine- or 12-month contract.

More information, including a list of departments and their status during the holiday schedule, will be available in early December.
