  • In summer, staff may take unpaid vacation dates off as long as those dates of 3 or more consecutive days are submitted at least 45 days in advance of dates.
  • We do have a sub shift policy which allows staff to sub out shifts upon occasion if needed, as long as a sub is found, and approved and documented 72 hours prior to the shift.  We do have a small staff though so sometimes this in not possible.  All staff is required to keep their assigned shifts if a sub cannot be found.
