- Half-Day Holiday Note. Governor Manchin’s decision to grant state employees an additional half-day holiday for Christmas Eve will result in an additional half-day of holiday time to be scheduled for WVU at Parkersburg. The additional holiday time will be decided locally and announced in the near future, and should not be confused with any announcements made by WVU for the Morgantown campus. WVU at Parkersburg’s published holiday schedule already calls for our campus to be closed from Dec. 24, 2009, through Jan.1, 2010. (Submitted by Debbie Richards.)

- Purchasing Note. The Purchasing Department recommends that campus offices use the Parkersburg Office Supply catalog in lieu of the Office Depot catalog when ordering office supplies. We have been noticing that many items through Office Depot show up as discontinued or not in stock. Office Depot also uses a different number system which makes it difficult to cross over to other sources. (Submitted by Wayne Riley)
