To help with planning, I am writing to confirm this year's winter holiday closure schedule. ANR units – including Research and Extension Centers, BOC Kearney, UCCE county offices and the Second Street Building in Davis – will be closed from Monday, Dec. 24, 2018, through Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019, except for essential services. ANR offices will reopen on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2019. The closure schedule will be the same for ANR employees at UCOP.
UC holidays will be observed on:
Monday, Dec. 24 and Tuesday, Dec. 25;
Monday, Dec. 31, 2018; and Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019.
December 26, 27 and 28, 2018, will be curtailment (closure) days. Employees will be given the option of using accrued vacation, compensatory time off (CTO), or leave without pay for the curtailment days. In the event an employee has not accumulated a sufficient amount of vacation time before December to cover the three days, arrangements can be made to allow those individuals to borrow against future vacation time.
We understand some UCCE county offices and research and extension centers may need to adjust the closure schedule to accommodate local needs. We ask that all UCCE county offices and RECs confirm their local schedules by completing this short survey no later than Tuesday, Nov. 6. Please complete this survey even if your office is following the ANR closure schedule.
Vice Provost Mark Lagrimini has the authority to approve alternative schedules for offices or individual employees at UCCE offices or the RECs. Mark will review your survey submissions and contact you with any questions or concerns. For administrative units, requests to work during the closure days will be reviewed by AVP Tu Tran.
Thank you for your cooperation. I hope you enjoy the winter break.
Executive Director, Human Resources
