Latest Superintendent's Update

Eid al-Fitr

Brentwood Community:

The purpose of this letter is to inform Parents, Students, Staff and Families that because Eid al-Fitr falls on Friday April 21, 2023, all schools will be closed. 
 
In 2018, the Board of Education designated Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, as an official day off from school.  Eid al-Fitr would only be a day off if it fell on a Monday through Friday. In creating the school calendar last year I mistakenly thought Eid fell on Saturday April 22nd and I apologize for the confusion. Thankfully we have some room in our school calendar because we did not use a snow day, which is why the remainder of the school calendar remains unchanged.

Once again, all schools will be closed on April 21, 2023, in observance of Eid al-Fitr.  If there are any games, practices, events or activities scheduled for the afternoon or evening of April 21st, please speak with your coach or advisor to see if it will still take place.

Today marks the beginning of Passover, we are about halfway through Ramadan and this weekend we will be celebrating Easter.   What's wonderful about the town of Brentwood and by extension this great country is that even though we have different ethnicities, cultures, and religions we respect, honor, welcome our differences and most importantly learn from each other.  So, on behalf of the entire staff and Board of Education we hope everyone has a peaceful, joyful and relaxing vacation beginning this Friday April 7th!

Thank you.

Mr. Loeschner
Superintendent
