Montgomery County’s shortened school year makes it tough to add days off to the calendar. But the county’s increasingly diverse population means more religious, ethnic and cultural groups are asking that the schools make their holidays into days off.
In response, the school system sent out a survey to parents, students and staff, asking on which holidays — from Diwali to Yom Kippur to Orthodox Christmas — they would stay home from school. The school board will use the results, released this summer, to decide the 2019-2020 school calendar.
