School will be closed on Monday due to religious observations of Eid al-Adha.

Since last year, schools have not been in session for this holiday.

Eid is one of two major Muslim holidays. It is the day that remembers when God appeared to Abraham, asking him to sacrifice his son.

Muslims celebrate this day by a prayer in the morning. Then, they sacrifice animals, donate to the poor, and exchange gifts and spend time with their friends and families.

“I think it was right to make Eid a holiday because it makes Muslims feel more included and accepted in society, especially with Muslims being conformed to a negative image,” sophomore Medina Surajpal said.
