School Reopening News!

Safety is our main concern. To make sure that everyone is following safety protocol, HDIS has made some changes in the school reopening plan. In order to train all students in a cohort, Hamilton Downtown Islamic school has planned a staggered start date (suggested by public Health) for school. We have staggered dismissal now for our students from KG-grade 6. Grade 7/8 will have the digital learning option to start with, which can change later.

A face mask is mandatory for all the students from KG-grade 8th. Parents will do wellness screening every day for their children before sending them to school. All undertakings shave to be signed and brought back to school.

Kindergarten will start at 8:50 am and their dismissal time is 1:45 pm for this year. They will start on Tuesday the 8th of September.

Grade ½ will also start at 8:50 am and they will be dismissed at 2:30 pm this year to enforce staggered dismissal. The first day for grade 1-2 will be Tuesday 8th of September.

Grade ¾ will start on Wednesday the 9th of September at 8:50 am and their dismissal time for this year will be 3:15 pm.

Grade 5/6 will start on Wednesday the 9th of September at 8:50 am and their dismissal time for this year will be 3:15 pm.
