Human Resources announces holiday schedule for the rest of 2013

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State's Office of Human Resources announced the remaining 2013 holiday schedule:

Independence Day
The Independence Day holiday will be on Thursday, July 4.
Labor Day
The Labor Day holiday will be on Monday, Sept. 2.
Thanksgiving Day
The Thanksgiving holiday will be on Thursday, Nov. 28.
December/January Holidays
This year, Dec. 25 will fall on a Wednesday, as will Jan. 1, 2014. The official University holiday period begins Monday, Dec. 23 and ends Wednesday, Jan. 1. Weekdays during that period are official University holidays – with the notable exception, however, of Tuesday, Dec. 31, which is not a University holiday. However, in order to provide a generally more desirable and efficient application of time off, University offices and facilities, except for essential services, will be closed Dec. 31 as well. Staff will need to account for the time appropriately, e.g., with vacation or no pay. Therefore, the University will be closed from the end of normal operations on Friday, Dec. 20, and will reopen on Thursday, Jan. 2.

This schedule is not applicable for the College of Medicine at Hershey Medical Center.

Questions regarding this holiday schedule should be directed to the appropriate college or department human resources representative, or the business office at a facility away from University Park.
