|Re:||Holiday Schedule 2017–18 and 2018–19|
In planning the University’s holiday schedule, we make every effort to provide a two-week closure in December, knowing how all of us appreciate the opportunity to have two full weeks. We also make every effort to match the closure schedule set out by the school boards of the Greater Toronto Area.
Unfortunately, due to academic programming issues, including exam timetables, we were unable to schedule a two-week break for 2017–18. We do want to remind everyone that this does not preclude employees (in particular, colleagues with children who will be on school holiday) from requesting to use existing vacation entitlement.
Following consultation with the registrars’ offices, we are delighted to report that there will be a two-week closure over the December break for 2018–19.
