Arlington Public School (APS)officials are currently considering a calendar for the 2021-2022 academic year incorporating additional holidays that reflect the diversity of the APS community. The proposed calendar includes days off for Rosh Hashanah (first day), Yom Kippur, Diwali (the festival of lights celebrated by Hindus and Sikhs), and Eid al-Fitr (the Muslim holiday celebrating the end of the month-long Ramadan fast).
APS is asking parents and community members to weigh in on this proposal via an online survey. We strongly encourage potentially impacted families and individuals to express their support for this new proposed calendar. The survey deadline is October 31st.
Please share this information with others in your network who might be impacted by this Board of Education decision.
