Employee workday, classes curtailed due to debate
On July 23 there are three events occurring on The Citadel campus that will make a normal work day almost impossible:
- Operational support for the Democratice presidential debate
- Support for the arrival and training of the Class of 2011 fall athletes
- Support for summer school classes
Therefore Monday, July 23 will be a down day for The Citadel. Only essential personnel, as determined by their supervisors, need to report for work. The remaining employees may chose to take leave, use comp time or make up the time within 45 days.
In addition, summer school classes are cancelled as of 1 p.m. on Monday. All classes held prior to 1 p.m. on the north side of campus will be relocated to the south side of campus. To see which classes have been relocated, click here. Students attending classes the morning of July 23 will be directed where to park . Parking will not be permitted on the north side of campus, so students should plan to walk to classes from remote parking areas on the south side of the campus.
The Daniel Library will remain open until 4 p.m.
It is important to note that the all parking on campus on July 23 will be very limited, and there will be portions of the campus that will be completely off limits for security reasons. The news media with their associated trucks and cables will be located throughout the campus and spectators could begin assembling outside the main gates in the early afternoon. This creates an excellent opportunity for a three-day weekend for most employees; however, please understand that this is not a paid day off. Again, for those not working on July 23, leave must be taken, comp time must be used or the time can be made up over the next 45 days. For those that chose to make up the time, I would suggest you set up a plan with your supervisor to make up the time in 30-minute to one-hour increments over several weeks between July 24 and September 7 until the eight hours are completed.
Tuesday, July 24th will be a normal work day but parking may still be limited on the north side of campus as CNN crews pack up McAlister Field House for departure.
Additional information will be posted on the college web site, including the debate web pages and via email and phoebe.
