There are 3 paid holidays in November for Thanksgiving and 6 paid holidays in December for Christmas/New Year's, so be sure to figure that into your time off--plus the leave you will be accruing in the next few paychecks before the end of 2021.

Part-time staff can make up holiday hours

Part-time staff may work more hours before and/or after holidays with supervisor approval as long as the Payroll time policies are followed (not more than 39 hours per week AND less than 120 hours in November and 112 hours in December).
