In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful The goal of the Islamic Academy for peace is to re-open safely for the 2020-2021 academic year. Recognizing the essential importance of in-person schooling, our intention is to return to in-person learning on campus for the fall unless otherwise specified by the Center for Disease control (CDC) and/or by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

The safety of our teachers and staff, students, our parents, and anyone who enters TIA’s building is a number one priority. We take the covid-19 pandemic very seriously and we are closely following the guidelines set by the CDC and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

The purpose for these policies and procedures is to mitigate the risk of contracting COVID-19 for everyone at the Islamic Academy Community.

Parents’ Role and Responsibility The Islamic Academy for Peace relies on parents’ full disclosure about any Covid-19 related matter in an effort to keep all stakeholders safe, therefore, it is the responsibility of the parents to:

  1. Keep their child(ren) home when they exhibit any symptom of any sickness

  2. To immediately inform the academy if the student(s) or any other family member who lives in the same residence has tested positive for Covid-19

  3. To immediately inform the academy if the student(s) or any other family member who lives in the same residence came in close contact with someone who ended up testing positive for Covid-19

  4. To inform TIA about any out of state travel plans by the student and giving the departure and return dates, in which case, the student(s) must either take the PCR test or self-isolate upon return

  5. To inform TIA that they have visitors from oversees stay at the residence, and disclose the protective measures taken by the guests and by the family

  6. Call the school if the parents have any doubt whether they should send their child(ren)

  7. Keep the siblings home if one child is exhibiting Covid-19 like symptoms

Before Coming to School

In our effort to mitigate the risks of spreading the virus each day before coming to school, we ask all parents to be vigilant and remain proactive by taking the following steps:

  1. Take your child’s temperature using a thermometer

  2. Assess your child for the following symptoms and respond accordingly. If your child has any of the following symptoms, your child must stay home and must have written documentation of a negative COVID-19 test and resolution of symptoms before returning to school.

  • Fever (a temperature of 100.0 F or greater), chills, or shaking chills • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Muscle aches or body aches

  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea

If your child’s ONLY symptom is a cough. And is due to a known cause, such as chronic cough or asthma, and is his/her only symptom (with the exception of runny nose/nasal congestion caused by allergies), your child may come to school. If your child has cough that is NOT due to a known condition, he/she may not come to school and must test result for COVID-19.

If your child has only one of the following symptoms, he/she may come to school:

  • Fatigue

  • Headache

  • Nasal congestion or runny nose

  • Nasal congestion or runny nose due to a known cause

If your child has any of the symptoms listed above, please do not give medications such as Tylenol or Motrin before sending your child to school. These medications can hide other symptoms such as a fever and body aches. If your child is not able to wear a mask and have any of the symptoms listed above, your child may not come to school until the symptom/s is/are vanished. Please do not send your child to school if he/she is not feeling well.
