I know that everyone is tired of covid (including school staff), but we have a responsibility in front of Allah to keep our school environment safe for everyone, especially in the next few weeks. We appreciate your cooperation, patience, and Dua in this matter.
High School back to In Person Learning: Insha Allah, the high school students will be back to in person learning tomorrow Monday November 29. In order to avoid going online again, we will continue to enforce the school covid safety protocol. We expect all high school students to follow these rules completely to avoid sending anyone home. Jazakum Allah Khairan for your cooperation.
