School Board Grants Additional Thanksgiving Holiday Leave to All 12-Month Employees

Happy Thanksgiving banner with holiday elements

Following a declaration by the Commonwealth of Virginia, and with appreciation and gratitude for everything you do each day for our students, their families, your colleagues, and our school community, the Albemarle County School Board has approved the superintendent’s request to grant a half-day holiday for all employees scheduled to work on Wednesday, November 22. All ACPS offices and facilities will now close four hours early on November 22. (This day was already scheduled as a non-student day.)

If you were scheduled to work an eight-hour day on November 22, four hours of holiday leave will be applied automatically to your timecard. If you work less than an eight-hour day, half of the hours for your typical work day will be applied automatically to your timecard. Employees who were not scheduled to work on November 22 are not affected by this decision.

Best wishes for a very happy Thanksgiving holiday!
