Reminder: Summer operating hours begin June 20th

In just a few short weeks, Shoreline Community College will adjust to summer public operating hours, which are in effect Monday, June 20th through Friday, September 2nd.

Starting on Monday, June 20th, the official college hours of business will be 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Thursday. On Fridays, the hours will be 8 a.m. to noon. The campus will close at noon on Fridays for public and student services. On September 5th following the Labor Day holiday, the campus will return to the regular schedule, which is 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. on Friday.

“This adjustment will allow the college to continue to serve our students and communities while also allowing our terrific employees an opportunity to balance their work and their lives outside of the College,” President Cheryl Roberts said.

To maintain a 40-hour work week, the schedule for most employees will be “four nine-hour days Monday through Thursday and one four-hour day on Fridays,” said Stephen Smith, Vice President for Human Resources and Legal Affairs. “The summer schedule will allow most employees to be off for the weekend by noon on Friday,” Smith added. Smith also noted that for the week of July 4th, a Monday holiday this year, full-time Classified employees will need to work 32 hours Tuesday through Friday by Noon of that week.

Smith noted that some departments, such as the Parent-Child Center, Safety and Security, and Facilities will continue with their regular academic year schedules based on business needs. For all other areas of the college, the deadline for employees to confirm an appropriate schedule for their position with their supervisor was May 20, 2016. Any employees who have not already confirmed a summer schedule with their supervisor should do so as soon as possible. Appropriate schedules will ensure departmental needs are fully met with adequate staff coverage during the official business hours of the College and that alternative schedules don’t create additional costs.

“We want employees to enjoy the opportunity for our schedule flexibility when practical,” Smith said. “We also share responsibilities to fulfill our shared mission by ensuring college services are available, accessible, and meeting the needs of our current and future students.”
