Reduced Holiday Schedule

Happy Holidays!

The College will be on a reduced schedule to achieve energy and other related savings, and therefore  starting at 6:00 a.m. Saturday, December 21, 2013 and continue through 6:00 a.m. Thursday, January 2, 2014 all buildings EXCEPT the Haggerty Administration Building, Hopfer House, Coykendall Science Building, the Center for International Programs, three Residence Halls, the Service Building and Heating plant will be closed.  Facilities Operations staff will be reducing set point temperatures and shutting down exhaust fans in closed buildings.  In addition they will reduce site lighting in parking lots and walkway areas during this period. Many parking lots, especially those closest to the closed residence halls, will be closed (no plowing and minimal lighting) until classes resume.

As a state agency, the College must remain open. This is because state agencies are not allowed to close without the governor’s approval. However, during the holiday season some offices will close for a brief period of time because staff have opted to use their accruals.  Students, staff and visitors will expect our offices to be open and we want to make them aware BEFORE they come to campus that an office is closed.

If your office is closing, or alternate assignments for staff is needed please follow these steps:

1. Each department head (or his/her designee) must report to their VP or Dean for approval in the decision to close their office as well as to discuss alternate assignments for staff if necessary.

2. The Vice Presidents and Deans or their secretaries should visit http://www.newpaltz.edu/officeclosings.

i. Click Submit/Update Office Closings and log in.

iii. Add date office will be closed.*
iv. Click Submit.

*Listing will disappear after applicable date.

Please contact Human Resources at x3171 if you have any questions concerning the above.

Thank you.
