      Leave for parents of children whose school is closed

      If you have to be at home to take care of children because their schools are closed, then opportunities for working from home will be sought in consultation with your supervisor. If that fails, the first two days fall under emergency leave. If this leave is not sufficient, then either regular leave (vacation days or ADV) or unpaid leave is used.
