The observance of both Jewish and Muslim holidays begins at sundown of the preceding day. Please see policies below related to celebrating holidays.

By law, public bodies cannot endorse or unduly favor one religion over another. Due to the number of holidays celebrated by families in our community, District 103 will not cancel school for religious or cultural reasons. A partial list of major religious & cultural holidays is listed above for reference and awareness only.

While school is in session on religious holidays, we support every family’s and students’ freedom to practice their religion. For consistency, the following guidelines have been established.

Excused Absences – District 103 will allow excused absences for students to celebrate religious holidays.

Notification of Absences – Parents are expected to follow procedures for reporting absences as stipulated in the parent-student handbook. Early notification of planned absences by parents is appreciated but not required.

Religious Holiday Observance – A student may not be penalized for their observance of a religious holiday. The student will be given one week to complete work impacted by the religious observance as well as makeup any missed tests or quizzes. Staff and teachers shall provide students with class notes or syllabus, and any assignments prior to the absence if requested and if available. Otherwise, these items shall be provided upon return from a religious holiday.

Sports and Extracurricular Activities – The District makes every effort to avoid conflicts on religious holidays. In the instance when a conflict may occur, students will not be penalized because they are unable to participate in a sporting event, practice, try-out or another extra-curricular activity due to their observance of a religious holiday.SCHOOL HOURS
