 Holidays and You Dear Teachers, As holidays approach, we understand that you may desire more time with your families. We fully support your decision and encourage you to enjoy yourself; however, we humbly request that you alert us via email weeks before your departure . This will allow us ample time to manage to schedule and assign standby teachers for a busy holiday cycle! Since many teachers are requesting time off around the same time period, it is imperative that we maintain as accurate a schedule as possible for teachers both requesting time off and working the holidays. Remember, if you are taking a hiatus from work for the  upcoming week or longer , please send an email to  classcoordination@qkids.cn . For the current week , please direct your concerns to your WeChat team & the service desk in your Qkids software.
