School Year Calendar

Days of Particular Significance - Rosh Hashanah

A reminder that Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, will be observed from Monday, September 6 (sunset) to Wednesday, September 8, 2021 (sunset). Recognizing how important the first day of school is for both staff, students and their families, we ask you to consider how you will ensure an inclusive, welcoming environment for all. These considerations should also be reflected upon on September 16 (Yom Kippur).
