    Did you know that if you are a regular full time or part time employee of AU that you have Bereavement time available to you immediately after hire?

    Up to five paid days of Bereavement Leave are provided to allow the employee to mourn and otherwise attend to the death of an immediate family member. Immediate family members are defined to include: spouse or spousal equivalent; child, stepchild, or grandchild; grandparent or parent; sibling; or parent-, son-, daughter- or sibling-in-law.

    One work day of Bereavement Leave is provided to allow the employee to mourn the death of a cousin, aunt, uncle, niece or nephew.

    Time awarded for Bereavement Leave will be pro-rated for regular employees who work less than full-time.

    Bereavement should be recorded on the time sheet as excused time with a comment in the comments section. If you normally work 7 hours a day, you put 7 hours under excused time for the days that you missed. If the days that you missed surpass what is allotted, you will code that time as vacation/personal/floating holiday/merit time.

    The New York State Department of Transportation announces that completion of the project to replace Baker's Bridge between state routes 21 and 244 will be delayed until November.

    Originally, replacement of the bridge on State Route 961G was to be completed Aug. 23. However, according to Dan Ermer, area construction supervisor for DOT Region 6, significant delays in utility relocation have pushed the re-opening date back to mid-November.

    During the bridge replacement project, State Route 961G, which runs between routes 21 and 244 in Alfred Station, has been closed to through traffic. The closure has primarily affected traffic to Alfred coming northbound on Route 21, with those motorists turning directly onto Route 244 about four-tenths of a mile north of the bridge. The detour directing traffic from the bridge to the 21/244 intersection will remain in place until the project's completion.

    On Thursday, our new students and their families are arriving on campus, all heading for the Joyce & Walton Health & Wellness Center to check in. Please be prepared for longer lines at the traffic lights and parking congestion as we welcome our new students, particularly between 7:30 am and 11am.

    If you are on campus, wander around and say hello to the families dropping off their sons and daughters at their residence halls. It's wonderful to see the energy as our RAs, orientation guides, and football players all help families unpack their cars and welcome the new students.
