Transcript A Good Friday For All President James Pickering cancelled all classes on Good Friday. In response to legislation signed by Gov. Ann Richards, Pickering acted quickly to comply with the governor's orders. According the state Senate resolution: ...the Legislature hereby requests the governor to encourage all state agencies to allow all their employees a paid say off on either April 9 or April 12 provided each state agency has enough employees on duty to conduct the public business of the agency on each of those days. "The news came down at 3:42 this after noon," said Pickering in a telephone interview. "The system got the news at 6 p.m. Isn't that something?" "We checked with A&M, and they are cancelling classes. I feel very bad because we got this information so late," he said. Pickering also said he was certain that even with the short notice, administrators and department heads would be able to make the determinations as to who is essential for a skeleton crew and who isn't. Wendy Adair, director of Media Relations, said the governor wanted to give state employees a holiday for the Easter weekend. As far as classes, professors had to reschedule tests and work around the unexpected and impromptu holiday. "People plan classes and they have schedules," Pickering said about the confusion the sudden holiday caused. "It's so late in the semester, people have schedules they have to adhere to." Pickering also said he regretted that many students who won't have class today wouldn't find out about the closure until they reached empty classrooms. "People who make these decisions-they don't realize that at this level we have students, faculty and classes to think about," Pickering said. Although Pickering was concerned about the effect of the timing of the legislation, he said, however, "We're certainly going to follow the governor's orders. "I assume what we'll do is maintain essential services, like we do during Christmas week," he said. As far as determin- ingwhoiscriticaland what offices are critical, Pickering said the Admissions Office, the forms and the President's Office would be among the few offices that would remain open. "And who'll be in the President's Office? Me," said Pickering with a chuckle. -Javier Gonzalez Suman Majumder, Economics, Finance, Jr. Barbara Mallory, Industrial Supervision, Jr. John A.
