Clarification on summer half-day Fridays and dress code starting May 17

President Schrader announced summer half-day Fridays for staff starting Friday, May 17, at the Service Awards Ceremony earlier this week.

Employees are expected to work four hours. Those working normal business hours would work 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. People starting work at 9 a.m. would work until 1 p.m., etc. People using vacation on Fridays in the summer would therefore submit the time off request for four hours of vacation time.

Also, staff may wear appropriate casual wear throughout the summer months beginning May 17 and ending Aug. 3. Check with your supervisor for dates on which this is not appropriate.
