July Central Calendar Update
The 2016–17 Central Calendar has been updated to reflect the observance of Eid al-Fitr on July 6. Please note that this is a paid holiday for all 12-month school-based employees (e.g., principals, 12–month assistant principals, employees in the DC-37 community title series, including parent coordinators). All central offices will be open, with potentially limited staff, on July 6.
