Personal Leave Guidelines

Personal Leave Taken Before or After a Holiday


When to Request
An employee who wishes to take a personal leave day before or after a holiday and does not wish to either pay the cost of the long-term substitute (Licensed) or lose 40 percent of a day’s pay (ESP), must make the request through the Human Resource Department during the Holiday Request window. Prior notification must be given to the principal or supervisor at least one day in advance of the request for leave.

How to Request
During the window, email your request to the secretary listed below. Please include your name, school, position, and date(s) you are requesting the leave.

Licensed employees email Gina Bench at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

ESP employees email Alyce Llewelyn at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


The employee will receive an email confirmation that the request has been received. If the employee does not receive an email confirmation then Human Resources has NOT received the request. Please submit again.
