Extension of COVID-19 Leave Bank

With the expiration of the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act (FFCRA) Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) and Expanded FMLA (EFMLA) on September 30, 2021, Albemarle County Public Schools created a program called COVID Leave Bank, equivalent to 10 days of leave for all regular employees, effective October 1, 2021, and set to expire January 31, 2022. This program has been extended through April 30, 2022, for continued usage by employees who have not exhausted the 10 days of leave.

Kronos should be utilized for this leave program. When applicable, employees will use the COVID19-Sick Self Cascade 10.2021 or COVID19-Sick Family Casc 10.2021 codes. To use any of the COVID-19 leave programs through April 30, 2022, employees should submit the new ACPS COVID-Related Leave Certification form and documentation of testing or an isolation/quarantine directive by a medical professional to their supervisor and/or timekeeper to apply to the timecard.

Note: In the event an employee exhausts all form of paid leave and remains incapacitated due to COVID-19, the employee should reach out to Human Resources to learn about potential options.
