Guidelines for Parents
Guidelines for Parents
Weekend school registration generally starts in late July / early August.
Currently, weekend school is for Grade Kindergarten through Grade 8.
Please email your details (name and phone number) to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the WhatsApp group for school-related general communication.
A seerah class is offered on weekend for High School students (Grade 9 through Grade 12)
Email & WhatsApp are the primary sources of communication, and phone alerts for quick reminders
An outline of topics being taught on a weekly basis for each level will be shared by the teachers. Please refer to your child’s binder or their teacher for details.
Students need to come to school with wudu and proper clothing to pray salah.
Clothes should be modest and not revealing in any way.
Shirts should not have any images of animals or people as we will be praying Salah on the premises.
Girls- Please make sure they bring a scarf, praying clothes or abaya that will cover them properly as required for Salah.
Boys - Shorts should cover the knees so that they can pray. Otherwise, bring a thob.
Personal hygiene is very important. Make sure the student is clean and the use of deodorant/ antiperspirant is advised. Parents, please ensure your child wears clean socks to maintain a clean Mussallah area.
Cell Phone Use
Cell phones need to be turned off or silenced during class.
Cell phone use is strictly discouraged during class time.
Cell phones will be taken away by the teacher till the end of class and will be returned only to a parent or a guardian.
Students may be fined for inappropriate phone use.
If a child is sick, send a note, email, or message. Pick up missed work from the teacher and ensure they are caught up by the next class.
Unexcused/unreported absence will impact the student's grade.
Being Prepared for Class
Great work ethic!
A separate bag is recommended for use in Weekend School.
Have your binder and basic stationery with you at all times.
Students will have a monthly planner with them to help them organize their regular school work in addition to Sunday School.
Come prepared with your homework done.
Leaving at the end of the day
Dhuhr Salah (proper clothing as prescribed for salah is mandatory)
Cleaning up – Teachers will specify when they need students to clean up before they leave.
