Launch recognizes the following paid holidays for all 11 month school employees who are members of instructional staff

  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Break
  • Winter Break
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
  • Mid-Winter Break
  • Spring Break
  • Memorial Day

If you are not an 11 month employee and member of instructional staff, your holiday schedule will be determined based on your individual job description and communicated at the time of hire or offer renewal. Any questions about individual paid holiday schedules should be directed to the Executive Director, Principal or Director of Finance.

Unless otherwise provided in this policy, all Launch employees will receive time off with pay at their normal base rate for each observed holiday. Employees on a leave of absence are ineligible for holiday benefits that accrue while on leave. Temporary and part time employees are not eligible to receive holiday pay.

To qualify for holiday pay, all employees must work the last scheduled day before and the first scheduled day after the holiday except in the event an absence has been approved by the employee’s supervisor.
