General School Rules
- Out of respect to the other students and teachers, please do not be late. Students and parents need to arrive on time every Sunday for drop-off AND pick-up.
- While at school (and everywhere else too), students are expected to exhibit good moral character. This includes:
- Being respectful to all Teachers, Staff members and fellow students
- Being courteous and helpful, especially towards younger students
- Refraining from the use of bad or inappropriate language and name-calling
- No aggressive playing or fighting—Students WILL be suspended for fighting
- Toys and Electronic Games (such as Gameboys) are not allowed at School. If such games/toys are accidentally brought to school, they should either be left in the student’s backpack or they will be held by the teacher(s) to be returned to the parents later.
Please remember to dress accordingly considering you are in a Masjid. All girls must have head scarves for prayer. It is not necessary for girls to wear the head scarf during the whole school day. Do not wear clothes with inappropriate slogans or pictures. Wear gender-appropriate clothes.
Salatul Dhuhr (the noon prayer) is a part of the Islamic School day. Every student MUST participate in the prayer. It helps to bind what they learn in the classroom with this essential feature of our faith. Parents are absolutely not allowed to take their child home after Dhuhr prayer unless it is necessary.
Children must bring their own lunch each Sunday. Snacks may be donated to the masjid for students who forget their lunches.
If you would like to bring a treat for special occasions, please contact the administration and let us know ahead of time.
- Bringing healthy Halal (if you have questions about what is considered to be Halal, please contact the administration to make sure) snacks and any needed supplies (e.g. napkins) –we’re encouraging healthy foods such as: bagels, fruits, sandwiches, granola bars, yogurt, etc. (Try avoiding sugary, processed snacks—such as cookies, soft drinks, or artificially-flavored drinks).
- Set up and distribute snacks to the each student.
- Stay and volunteer for the day when it is your turn to bring the snacks.
Parents’ responsibilities include the following:
- Make sure that their child gets to school on time, schol begins at 10:30 am.
- Pick up their children promptly @ 1:30pm unless other arrangements have been made.
- Advise and encourage their child to respect and obey the rules.
- Be sure that their child attends school regularly and on time.

- Check school notice board and look out for handouts brought by their children every Sunday.
- Any Parent who disrupts the operation of school and creates conflicts will have their registration canceled.
- Sometimes children misunderstand or misinterpret the information given in the class.
- If you hear something from your child that sounds strange or wrong, please verify the information with the teacher directly instead of spreading the misinformation.
- Disrespectful behavior towards teachers or staff (either by students or their parents), or complete lack of any academic progress in the class may result in strict and immediate disciplinary action. This includes suspension from the school.
Teachers will follow the steps below in escalating disciplinary issues:
- Talk with the student directly.
- Call parents at home or setup a meeting with them at the school.
- If the first two steps fail to produce any results, the parent will be required to sit in the classroom as long as the school feels it is necessary.
