05/16/18 to 06/14/18

Every year, Muslims engage in a 30-day, sunup-to-sundown fast called Ramadan (May 16-June 14). Ramadan begins at sundown on May 15.  May 16 is first full day of Ramadan observances. When Ramadan occurs during the school year, schools and offices can best support fasting students and employees by helping others understand the nature and purpose of fasting, by voicing their own support for commitment to a goal, and by discouraging those who tease and challenge fasting students’ and employees’ commitment to the discipline.
