MLK DAY -- No School on Monday in observance
Legislation signed in 1983 marked the birthday of the Rev. Dr. Martin  Luther King, Jr. as a federal holiday. In 1994, Congress designated the  Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service and  charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading  this effort. Each year, on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of  Service is observed as a MLK  Day of Service is intended to empower individuals, strengthen  communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social problems, and  move us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community."
