Kenyon has temporarily adopted new policies regarding telework and paid leave in an effort to minimize exposure to COVID-19 and keep our community and loved ones well. We recognize that the closing of K–12 schools presents a special challenge, as would a quarantine in your family, and we hope these changes will ease the strain. As always, if you have questions regarding your specific situation, please talk with your supervisor or department chair.
