There are 174 school days in the academic year. The School is closed in observance of the Lunar New Year and Eid al-Fitr during calendar years when the holidays fall on a weekday; both are celebrated on weekends in 2023. Note that the first three snow days in the 2022-2023 school year are anticipated to be true snow days, with no expectation that students will engage with school work on those days.
