Frequently Asked Questions:
- Why are the timings different between the in person and virtual learners?
We have designed our schedule to ensure consistency throughout all grade levels, keeping in mind our Phase 2 reopening of our MD/HS campus Insha'Allah. We have also taken their Social Emotional Learning into consideration by allowing for one period block (11:05-11:55am) to be concurrently taught (1st-3rd). This will help our virtual learners to not only receive live instruction, but also to feel part of the class and see their peers, allowing for inclusivity. You may refer to the re-entry plan included above for a breakdown of the schedule.
Overall, both in person and virtual learners from 1st to 5th grade will receive approximately same amount and quality of instruction. There is a slight difference remaining in instructional time between the virtual and in person instruction which is compensated by the fact that in most of the classes, the teacher student ratio for virtual learning is less.
- What does Friday FLEX day stand for?
We have set aside Friday as a FLEX day to allow teachers to schedule (on a as needed basis) extra sessions with the class, a small group or one student. FLEX day is for our students to complete assignments or communicate via email with their teachers in the event they have any questions.
Additionally, it will give our teachers an opportunity and time for preparation, planning, collaboration and professional development.
- What does drop off and dismissal look like?
We plan to communicate our plan in detail shortly Insha'Allah.
- Is there an after school program?
We do not have an after school program scheduled at this time. Please pick up your child on time.
