Principal’s Newsletter 8/26/21

As salaamu ‘alaikum ICN Noor Academy Families,

It is almost the end of the first full week of school!  At home and at school, we are all adjusting to new schedules and new routines, and although there is often some discomfort during this early hustle-and-bustle, we are grateful for the cooperation and feedback from our school families. InshaAllah, things will become increasingly smooth as the weeks go by.


The following are some important reminders, to keep things going smoothly.

CARPOOL:

Backpacks, masks, etc. must be ready to go at drop off time. Please keep the goodbye’s short and sweet> If the line is being delayed for the above reasons, teachers will ask you to park and bring your child in after the carpool ends.** A word of caution:  we have observed that often separation anxiety is more intense when a parent walks a child to the building, as opposed to driving through the carpool line.

HEALTH

If your child is sent home with a fever of 100 degrees or higher, please take them to the pediatrician to be checked, and tested for COVID, or cleared to come back to school with a note.  Relatively little is still known about the nature of this virus in younger children, so we must be conservative.> Excessively runny noses, especially in younger children, make it difficult to keep their masks on.  Often the masks get soaked even after being changed.  If you notice your child has a very runny nose or a lot of sneezing please keep them home and let them rest.


ONLINE: Logging in from home is an option only for those who must quarantine.  A couple of missed school days due to minor illness do not require remote attendance.> Once the WebEx platform is ready, virtual links for each classroom will be published.  InshaAllah we hope to have these ready by the end of next week.

IN SEPTEMBER>
