Holiday Schedule and President's Discretionary Days
Sept. 24, 2015
Dear Members of the Brandeis Community,
As we turn our attention to all the activities of the fall semester, I want to thank you for your many contributions to Brandeis over the past year. Your dedication and unwavering commitment to the quality of this university ensure the excellence of Brandeis.
One of the challenges of this dedication is making sure that we find the right balance between work and our personal lives. Therefore, in order to help you make plans for the holiday season, I want you to know that I have approved the following five President’s Discretionary Days to allow you additional time to spend with family and friends:
- Wednesday, Nov. 25, which extends the existing Thanksgiving holidays of Thursday, Nov. 26, and Friday, Nov. 27.
- Monday, Dec. 28, through Thursday, Dec. 31, which extends the existing Christmas and New Year holidays of a half day on Thursday, Dec. 24, Friday, Dec. 25, and Friday, Jan. 1.
As in the past, departments that must remain open will inform any staff members who are required to work all or some of the holiday schedule. Employees should check with their supervisors regarding scheduling. These staff members are entitled to schedule other days off to make up for the holidays they are required to work.
Looking forward, I wish the entire Brandeis community a healthy, happy holiday season.
Lisa M. Lynch
