D​ear Colleagues,

I am pleased to confirm that, effective Tuesday, May 31, 2022, administrative offices and academic departments will transition from our normal working hours to summer hours. Under the summer schedule, the workday will begin at 8:15 a.m. and conclude at 4:30 p.m.  

We are also pleased to announce the continuation of the Summer Early Fridays program. Beginning June 10, 2022, College offices will close at 2​:00​ p.m. on Fridays during the summer. ​We hope that the shortened Friday workday will allow you to get an early start on your weekends, and provide extra time to relax and recharge. 

Employees who are able to take advantage of the Early Fridays program will not be required to make up the hours at other times during the week, and will continue to earn regular salary and wages for the period between 2​:00​ p.m. and the end of their normal Friday workday. ​​

We recognize that some employees, due to their schedules, may not be able to participate in these programs exactly as described. As we have done ​in previous​ years, we are asking supervisors to identify other ways to provide similar scheduling flexibility during the summer timeframe. If you have questions about these programs or how they may impact your staff, please contact Human Resources at ext. 5060.

Both programs will conclude on August 12, 2022, and the College will resume normal working hours on Monday, August 15, 2022. Through both programs, we hope to demonstrate our deep appreciation for everything you do to make Lafayette such a wonderful community. 

Happy Summer!

Leslie Muhlfelder, Vice President of Human Resources and General Counsel
