Winter Break Closure 2013 - Update

rev. 12/16/2013

The CSU, Chico campus will be observing the holidays as follows:

Date Campus Status Paid Staff Holidays
Monday, December 23, 2013 Campus closed Holiday - rescheduled Columbus Day
Tuesday, December 24, 2013 Campus open* Informal and Administrative Time Off - all day
Wednesday, December 25, 2013 Campus closed Holiday
Thursday, December 26, 2013 Campus closed Holiday - rescheduled Lincoln's Birthday
Friday, December 27, 2013 Campus closed Holiday - rescheduled President's Day
Monday, December 30, 2013 Campus open* (Staff may use leave credits)
Tuesday, December 31, 2013 Campus open* (Staff may use leave credits)
Wednesday, January 1, 2014 Campus closed Holiday

*Campus open with limited access.

Rescheduled holidays that actually occurred during other times of the year cover most of the closure days.

The campus will be open with limited access on December 30 (Monday), and 31 (Tuesday), 2013.

  • The intent of the closure is to encourage non-essential employees to take time off during this time.
  • Departments may plan partial or complete closures for December 30 and 31.
  • Employees may request leave (CTO, Vacation, or their Personal Holiday) for these days, and
  • Employees without sufficient leave may elect not to work, but will receive a pay dock for these days.

On December 30 and 31, the campus will be open but only certain buildings will be accessible.  Employees who wish to work on those days will be accommodated.  Managers who have employees who want to work on those days are asked to contact Dylan Saake no later than December 6, 2013, to allow ample time for coordinating work locations, supervision, and assignments for employees who wish to work on that day.

The Governor has authorized a half day of informal time off for the day before the Christmas holiday.  President Zingg has granted administrative leave so the campus will close for the entire day (with the exception of essential personnel). Employees whose duties prevent them from taking the time off on December 24, 2013, may make arrangements with the appropriate administrator to take informal time off on any working day before June 30, 2014.  The president’s half-day administrative leave is not eligible to be used on any day other than the day it is granted – December 24, 2013. Please review information about absence reporting for December for instructions.

We anticipate many employees will continue to want to take additional time off the week prior to the winter break (December 16-20, 2013).  We encourage you to speak with your supervisor to discuss vacation leave and coverage during the days the University will be open.

General questions can be forwarded to the Human Resources Service Center, (530) 898-6771.
