D-E School Recognition of Holidays & Events 

The confirmed 2022-2023 Key Dates and School Closures Calendar (see above in "Learn More" or click here) reflects the School's decision to recognize additional cultural/religious holidays and events beginning with the 2022-2023 school year including Diwali, Lunar New Year and Eid Al-Fitr and to close (i.e., hold no classes) when these holidays/events occur on Mondays-Fridays (only) just as the school accommodates current cultural/religious holidays occurring Monday - Friday. Please contact the D-E Office of Engagement by Email at batisg@d-e.org for any questions regarding D-E cultural/religious holiday observances.
