As Salaamu ‘Alaikum ICN Noor Academy Families,
Due to addressing last week’s political turmoil I missed the chance to welcome everyone back to school after winter break. To all our families, I hope you enjoyed the time spent away from school activities, and to those who may have experienced illness, whether COVID-related or not, may Allah grant complete shifa and protect everyone in the family.
For the remainder of January our school will continue to be online. Although the districts 203 and 204 are returning to hybrid instruction in some capacity, it still appears to result in a fragmented school experience. At this time we feel that our students and teachers have reached a level of comfort with the online routines and homework expectations. Overall, students are demonstrating progress. Despite the disadvantages of online schooling, we feel that the benefits of health and safety at home still outweigh the risks of gathering people for extended periods of time and exposing students and teachers to the virus. The rate of illness and deaths continue to be very high, and the vaccination process is still slow.
Enrollment for Fall 2021 is just around the corner. InshaAllah we hope to open registration in early February. Once the decisions have been approved we will communicate with you regarding in-person instruction, which elementary grades will be offered, and important dates and deadlines.
The ICN School District Engagement Committee would like to invite all community families to an online event called “Erasing The Stigma” (regarding mental illness and suicide prevention) on Friday, January 29th at 6:30pm. Please see the flyer for information on joining.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Thank you and salaam,
ICN Noor Academy
