Students get a no homework day or excused absence on Diwali day.
Students currently don't get a day off to celebrate one the biggest traditional holiday celebrations with their families. We would like children an excused absense as well as no homework for kids and families that celebrate Diwali holiday.
If parents like kids can stay home and not be penalized for celebrating their holiday and not have to worry about homework.
