The Laboratory, except for a few areas, will be closed
from the end of the day Friday, December 20, at midnight through the end
of the day Sunday, December 29, at midnight (see Calendar, page 3).
Tuesday, December 24 and Wednesday, December 25 are
University holidays. December 23, 26, and 27 are non-paid days when staff
will have to use personal time or vacation time to receive full pay (there
may be a few staff with unusual schedules for whom the exact dates will be
somewhat different). SSRL staff will have a slightly different schedule
due to operational requirements; SSRL management will inform staff of the
SLAC will be open for work on December 30 and 31. Staff
are encouraged to take vacation on those days, giving themselves almost
two weeks off at this special time of year. Even though the Lab will be
open, there will be minimal services available from administrative units.
New Year’s Day (Wednesday, January 1, 2003) is a
University holiday. We will return to a normal work schedule and full
staffing on Thursday, January 2, 2003.
