Early Release for Upcoming Holidays

For everyone across the university, 2020 has been a very demanding year. The extraordinary challenges presented by COVID-19 have required you to work longer hours and expend extraordinary amounts of effort in order to continue our important mission of education and research.

As we look forward to the holiday season, I want you to know that we are always eternally grateful for your contributions, your resilience and your service.

With authorization from The Texas A&M University System, I am approving the early release of all non-essential personnel on

  • Wednesday, November 25, at noon, and
  • Tuesday, December 22, at noon.

If you are unsure of your status, please consult with your supervisor. Leave time previously authorized will be reinstated for leave-eligible employees. For additional information regarding early release time, visit the Special Holidays and Early Release webpage.

Thank you again for all you do to help advance our essential land-grant mission. Please accept my best wishes for a restful and relaxing holiday season, and for the health and happiness of your families and loved ones.
