Published: May 27, 2009

PROSPECT, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut school district is considering a proposal to close schools on two Muslim holidays.
The Region 16 Board of Education is expected to take up the Student Council’s proposal this week.
The board represents the towns of Prospect and Beacon Falls, Conn.
The resolution asks the board not to hold classes on the day that marks the end of the fasting period of Ramadan and on the day that concludes the annual observance of the pilgrimage to Mecca.
