Remote Online Learning during Ramadan:

  • Academic lessons during Ramadan will be shortened.
  • Quran and Arabic classes will continue to meet live on ZOOM twice a week during Ramadan.  Schedule will be posted soon.
  • “Brain Break” days have been scheduled to give students and families a “break” as teachers catch up with students' online submission of work.  Those dates will be posted in the schedule as well.   

Communication is very important during these times and we encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher through REMIND for assistance, or email Sr. Zenab, the elementary principal using the link below or through the school’s website if your concern was not resolved.

Dear Respected Families,


Assalamu Alaikum. We pray that you and your families are well.  We truly miss the children! We miss the smiles, the laughter, the endless conversations and the wonderful time we have spent together.  We ask Allah SWT to lift this trial from us and make us all steadfast on His Deen. Ameen.


Many thanks to all the families that have picked up the Learn-At-Home materials and have shown their support during these difficult times.  Beginning March 30th all Al Madinah School students will be transitioning to remote online instruction. 


The elementary school will be using Pearson Realize and I-Ready as platforms for learning, which many families and students are already familiar with.  The Arabic, Quran and Islamic Studies Department will be using Google Classroom. (More information about this will be posted in the coming days.)


Our teachers have worked very hard to develop online lessons for students to continue learning, despite school closure.  Parents play a fundamental role in creating an environment that will be conducive to learning at home. Our teachers have posted recommended schedules for families on their webpages.


To begin remote online instruction, we ask that families please watch the tutorials we have created below.  It will answer many of the questions you may have.

Pearson Realize and I-Ready student login information was distributed to parents last week.  If you did not receive your child(ren)’s login information and have cleared your school account you may text your child’s teacher on REMIND.  Passwords for Quran, Arabic and Islamic Studies will be emailed to you from your child(ren)’s teacher using the email that you provided the school.  


Please understand that this transition is new to all of us and we will continue to do our best to help assist you with any concerns you may have.  We have full trust and yaqeen in Allah SWT that all this will pass and when it does we pray that our Iman and our relationship as partners in your child(ren)’s education will be stronger.
