Snow days…a mess in more ways than one. But it has been yet another opportunity for me to expand my understanding of everything that goes into this profession of ours. I have had several folks ask about various aspects of the impact of missing so many days. Several of these were things unique to a level or position and were things I didn’t even know to think about. I so appreciate the questions that all of you ask. You expand my thinking and learning every day.
Much is still up in the air concerning snow days. However, do know if you had a prearranged absence scheduled for a day we missed due to inclement weather, you will not be charged for that day. (Our contract states: Employees will not be charged leave for pre-arranged leaves of absence which occur during emergency closures.) Payroll is on the look out for days put through as sick leave or personal leave on snow days and will fix any put through in error. The one exception is if you are on a long term leave such as a parental leave. FMLA requires that all days on leave be counted as leave days.
