New policy for unpaid holidays

The Sunnyside School Board last week approved a policy of allowing two unpaid holidays for reasons of faith or conscience to employees every calendar year.

The time off will be granted to allow activities conducted for a reason of faith or conscience, or an organized activity conducted under the auspices of a religious denomination, church or religious organization.

The requests will not be granted if the requests would cause undue hardship on the district or if the employee is necessary to maintain public safety.
