Can hourly staff attend?

Provost Jane Atkinson stated that all community members are encouraged to attend the event as long as their duties are nonessential to maintaining core services. Employees who wish to attend the event will be compensated for their time as if they had been present for their regular work between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday, August 19, 2016. Hourly employees who leave following the picnic (or take this paid time off in the future because of work commitments on August 19)  should enter the hours on their time sheet using the “Time Worked” code of “College Closure.”
