OF RECORD Extension of Break
Extension of Special Winter Vacation Period to Include Friday, January 2
To the University Community
We had previously announced that the University would be closed for the special winter vacation between December 25th and January 1st. However, we have heard the request from many of you that Penn extend the special winter vacation period by one additional day. Based upon the comments we received, and upon further examination of the business needs for staying open the day after New Year, we have decided that the University special winter vacation will be extended through January 2nd. The University will reopen for regular business on Monday, January 5th, 1998. We are delighted to be able to provide this extra vacation day for our faculty and staff who have dedicated so much of their time and efforts to Penn throughout the year.
