Do staff get Good Friday off? If not, can I take Good Friday (April 22 this year) off as a religious holiday?
Good Friday is not designated a holiday in BOCES staff contracts, but you can choose to take the day off as a religious holiday.
All contracts include similar language about taking off religious holidays, allowing staff to use short-term leave for such a purpose. To find out the details for your particular bargaining unit, check your contract:
