The university launched new three initiatives to assist families facing fall child care challenges: (1) support for child care costs; (2) workload flexibility for staff and faculty; and (3) limited campus child care by appointment. More information can be found in the December 22 email. Additionally, with supervisor approval, staff can take an unpaid Convenience Leave up to twelve (12) weeks and retain their position, should the workload flexibility not work with their schedules.
- To request the expanded childcare subsidy, complete the COVID-19 Child Care Subsidy Request form and include supporting documentation.
- To request workload flexibility, please talk with your supervisor and complete the Part Time and Flex Schedule Request Form.
- For more information or to schedule an appointment for child care services with One to One Fitness or Next Level Fitness Studio, see the Child Care Services website.
- To take a Convenience Leave, staff should complete a Leave of Absence Form.
