2021 Holiday Season
As we approach the Holiday season, and many of you are beginning to make plans to
spend time with your family and friends, we wanted to outline this year's holiday
For the Thanksgiving holiday many departments on the West Campus, the Southampton
Campus, and in the Health Sciences Schools will choose to remain closed on Friday,
November 26. Departments are encouraged to make appropriate arrangements for employees
who do not wish to use their vacation or personal time on days other than official
holidays, when offices may choose to close. Supervisors may contact
HRS Recruiting & Employment Services
The year-end holiday season is traditionally a time when employees spend some time
away from the University. The official
New York State holiday closings
are December 25 and January 1, but departments may choose to close Friday, December
24, and Friday, December 31. In addition, departments may operate with reduced staffing
from Monday, December 27 through Thursday, December 30. Employees must charge appropriate
accruals for absences beyond the two official holidays.
Stony Brook University Hospital, Schools of Medicine and Dental Medicine outpatient
facilities, as well as the Long Island State Veterans Home, will maintain normal operations
during the holiday period.
From your colleagues in HRS - we wish you and your families a wonderful holiday season.
