*Staff get one holiday during this week
***Offices will be open on Labor Day because classes are in session.  At the supervisor’s discretion, an employee may use Labor Day as his/her holiday; however, offices must be sufficiently staffed since classes are in session.  If an employee does not use this day as a holiday, it may be taken any time prior to the end of the fiscal year, May 31.
