Isn't It Time For Equality?


As you can see from the chart on the right, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) close on Christmas, Good Friday, Easter Monday, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and frequently for Passover.

However MCPS does not close for the two annual Muslim holidays of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. So thousands of Muslim staff and students in MCPS are denied equal treatment to their counterparts of other faiths. They have to choose between their religious observance and their education.

We at the Equality 4 Eid Coalition believe that all MCPS staff and students deserve equal treatment. It's time to grant school closings for Muslim holidays. We need you to join our coalition to help make this happen!
