Assalamu Alaikum Dear Parents,
Alhamdulillah, the pool tests (PCR) have been negative for two consecutive weeks. We have started to scale back on the COVID restrictions. As of now, we have removed the desk shields and the students are so excited to finally have a clear view of the board and of their classmates sitting beside them. We will stop taking the temperature as of Monday, March 14th next week. We are waiting to have 3 negative
consecutive pools in order to lift the mask mandate (so far two pool tests are negative). If everything goes well, this will happen next Friday, March 18th inshaAllah.
I sincerely thank all the parents, students, teachers and staff for their support and cooperation through
this crisis. You, parents understood the challenge and helped us by keeping your children home when
not feeling well, by informing us about family members who tested positive and by informing us about
your travel plans. You understood the risks and you stepped up to the plate to keep everyone safe at
Even though we are scaling back on the restrictions, I would like everyone to stay vigilant, to keep us
updated on COVID infections at home and to keep your symptomatic child at home.
Dr. Nadjette Lazzouni

Message from Student Council
Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al-'as (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: A man asked the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ): "Which act in Islam is the best?" He (ﷺ) replied, "To give food, and to greet everyone, whether you know or you do not." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
In the spirit of interfaith and community service, student Council members prepared the dinner that they will be serving tonight to the homeless at a local church in Lowell. G7 and G8 students buttered the bread in their classrooms today. ISA, a few of them will be serving the homeless in Lowell MA.
