Requests for planned absences should be used for all absences known in advance ex:  any appointments, family commitments, events, travelling. 

The request for a planned absence must be sent at least 1 week in advance. 

The reason for the absence must be identified and coverage must be found for your time away. 

 As per the Staff Manual guidelines, all planned absences must be approved in advance, an approval will be sent to you.  If you do not receive a response to your request,  please make sure to follow-up with Suzana.

 If you are making a request that is outside of the guidelines (less than 7 days in advance, before or after a break, more than 1 day in a month, more than 2 days in a row, if you have exceeded your bank of hours), please ensure to ask permission from Rabbi Grossman prior to submitting the form.
