* For Winter Break 2021, the employee’s birthday hours may be used if the employee birthday has passed and hours are available to use. Therefore, the required days of leave for the 2021 winter break would be reduced to only one if the birthday hours are applied.

Holidays and employee birthday leave will expire at the end of the year in which they are accrued.

When a holiday falls on a Saturday, the preceding Friday is observed as the paid day off. When a holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday is observed as the paid day off. Separate from the above holiday schedule, the Division is closed between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day, for Winter Break. For each day during Winter Break that is not a designed holiday, employees will be charged one day of annual leave. If you’d like to take time off for a religious holiday that is not part of the Division’s holiday schedule, speak with your supervisor.

 

For 2021

Presidents’ Day/Daisy Gatson Bates Day will be observed on Friday, March 26, 2021. Winter Break 2021 will begin Friday, December 24, 2021 and continue through Friday, December 31, 2021. Christmas Day will be observed on Monday, December 27 and New Year’s Day will be observed on Friday, December 31.
