Memorial Day — EC Miami is Closed

The fourth Monday of May is traditionally observed in the United States as Memorial Day.  It is a day of remembrance of the men and women that died in service of the country.  On Memorial Day, the flag of the United States is raised briskly to the top of the flagpole, then slowly lowered to the half-staff position, where it remains until noon.  This is done in observance of the holiday, and remembers over one million people that lost their lives.  It is then raised to full-staff for the rest of the day.

Memorial Day is a federal holiday, and EC Miami is closed in observance, so staff and students all have the day off.  We will resume our full classes including our academic English courses on Tuesday.
