WORLD SABBATH DAY
As we approach the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, we want to be understanding of Muslim students within our district who may need accommodations during this time. For Muslims around the world Ramadan is a time of worship, study, prayer and fasting. During this fast, Muslims who are able, do not eat or drink during daylight hours for the entire month of Ramadan. While younger children are not required to fast, many will fast for all or part of the day.
Ramadan culminates with a holiday called, Eid al-Fitr. This celebration can involve praying, visiting friends and relatives, exchanging gifts, sharing food, remembering deceased loved ones and helping those experiencing poverty. While students will be in attendance during Ramadan, it is likely that most will be absent in observance of Eid-al-Fitr.
Because Ramadan is observed based on the lunar calendar, it is not celebrated at the same time each year and some families may have observances that differ by a day or two.
