Spring scenes on KU campus



Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

The pesky wildfire smoke from the past two days should hopefully be less of an issue today, but it could still make for a haze to the otherwise sunny skies. It’ll turn very warm and summery, as well, but dewpoints otherwise stay in check, so it should still be reasonably comfortable.


Annual Spouse Attestation for PEBTF Benefits

The annual PEBTF spouse attestation for AFSCME and SCUPA employees hired on or after Aug. 1, 2003, will be held from June 1 through July 31. Employees who do not complete the attestation by July 31, 2023, will have their spouse terminated effective Aug. 1, 2023. The initial letter was mailed May 24. The online attestation on the PEBTF website is available to employees.
