Please email the Marblehead School Committee the following before tonight when they are thought to be voting to eliminate the Jewish holidays from the school calendar. "We are requesting that an open task force be formed to fully examine options available to address the school calendar, and present multiple, available scenarios to manage the unlikely recurrence of extreme weather challenges we faced this year. An open, transparent task force -- chaired by a school board committee member and populated by representatives from the religious leadership, parents from diverse religious backgrounds, a METCO representative, and a teachers union representative - would be a more appropriate approach to identifying a solution that would achieve the desired results without alienating members of the community.'
Marblehead School Committee will address the 2015-2016 School Calendar at TOMORROW'S MEETING at 7:30 pm at Marblehead High School Library. Whether to eliminate certain days off, including Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, is on the agenda at 9 p.m. We urge all interested Marblehead residents to attend.
The Jewish Broadcasting Service will have live election day coverage after 3 p.m. today.
