What is the holiday schedule for December?
Kent State will once again operate on a holiday schedule for the last week in December. The holiday schedule will run from Sunday, Dec. 24, 2012, through Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013. During that time, all nonessential operations will be closed at all Kent State campuses. Regular university operations will resume on Wednesday, Jan. 2.
This year, the Christmas and New Year's holidays fall on a Tuesday. Classified and unclassified employees will receive paid leave for four days, Dec. 26, 27, 28 and 31. The paid leave is in addition to the paid holidays of Dec. 24, 25 and Jan. 1.
The holiday schedule applies to classified and unclassified employees who normally accrue vacation throughout the year. Employees that are not eligible for the paid leave include student employees, classified temporary staff, temporary agency staff, unclassified nine and 10-month term appointments, short-term unclassified appointments and employees in a lay-off status.
In December, you can view a list of departments and their status (open, partially open or closed) during the holiday schedule. The schedule will be available at www.kent.edu/hr/records/holiday-schedule.cfm.
