TO: Faculty and Staff, All campuses

Dear Staff Colleagues:

I am sure many of you are already starting to make plans for this summer and the winter holidays, which offer a unique opportunity to spend time with family and friends, and a welcome chance to relax.  I am pleased to announce that the university will give all staff the following bonus days off for calendar years 2017 and 2018:

  • Monday, July 3, 2017
  • Friday, December 29, 2017
  • Monday, December 31, 2018

In conjunction with the previously announced university holiday days off, these bonus days will provide long weekends.  The bonus days will apply to all benefits-eligible Tufts staff.  The provision of necessary services will require some staff to work on these bonus days.  Supervisors will be in touch with those of you who need to come in that day, and will determine whether you can identify another day to take as a bonus day or will receive comparable pay.  I appreciate your flexibility and understanding.

Best wishes,


TuftsAlert system
