School Hours

School starts at 8:00 a.m. with morning announcements. During this valuable time, we discuss the Value of the Month and how various hadith and verses from the Quran are related to this character trait. This time also gives us the opportunity to discuss exciting upcoming events.

Our school day begins precisely at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 3:15 p.m. Students have a snack break for 10 minutes and 30 minutes break for lunch and recess, with a separate 10 minutes for Salat al-Dhuhr. Pre-K1-1st Grade will have about 40 minutes break for lunch and recess.

We highly recommend that students make appointments for non-school related matters such as dental and medical appointments outside of school hours whenever possible.  However, if appointments cannot be done outside of school hours, parents are requested to advise the office the day before the appointment and the time the students will have to be released.  A parent/guardian will need to provide school with a verification of a doctor’s note or a note of explanation for all medical and/or dental appointments upon returning.
