Below is the official CIS School Calendar for the 2016-2017 Academic Year. Please note that all Islamic and UAE National Holidays (*) are subject to change and will be verified by the Abu Dhabi Education Council closer to these dates. School event dates (in red) are also subject to change. We encourage that parents do not make any holiday arrangements before these dates are confirmed to avoid children missing school. Please see the 2016-2017 Parent-Student Handbook for policies regarding extended absence requests.
