RAMADAN 2022 IS COMING!!
What School Faculty need to know:
Ramadan is the Muslim month of fasting. Practicing Muslim students will be fasting from dawn until dusk (approx. 6:00am – 8:00pm). Fasting means NO FOOD and NO WATER. Ramadan celebration often involves prayers late into the night. It is not unusual to be up past midnight for prayers and then get up around 6:00am to eat before dawn and pray. Ramadan 2022 will last approximately from April 2 – May 2. Ramadan is scheduled on the lunar calendar so it moves dates each year.
Muslim students may be tired, hungry, and dehydrated in your
classes – especially if they are with you late in the afternoon.
