Message on Hate Crime

#OurLondonFamily

Dear Community,

We are heartbroken at Hamilton Downtown Islamic School at the tragic loss of four members of a Muslim family in London as a result of hate crime. Hamilton Downtown Islamic School staff stand in solidarity with community at this difficult time while praying for the family.

This is the time we strengthen ourselves and unite against Islamophobia since our children may feel scared and unsafe after this horrific incident.

I have been receiving condolence emails from other Faith and learning communities for the Muslim family in grief. These messages show their respect for our Faith and school community.

May Allah protect every one and give the surviving child and relatives strength to cope with irreparable loss.

Ameen

Nailah Faisal, M.Sc., B.Ed., OCT.

Principal Hamilton Downtown Islamic School.

HDIS Updates

Assalam-o-Alaikom HDIS Families,

This is to remind all HDIS families that Monday, February 15th is a Family day Holiday. There will be no school or online classes for students on Monday. The school will resume from Tuesday. We welcome in-person grade ½ students to join us from Tuesday, February 16th, 2021.

Another news for all Ontario school Boards is that March break is postponed until April according to the MED and a part of the letter sent to the families is copied below:

Today, the province announced that it is postponing March Break until April 12-16 as part of the efforts to keep schools open and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Minister shared that this decision was made with the best advice of Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health and public health officials. At HWDSB, we know this may be challenging news for students, families, and staff. It is another change in this unprecedented school year. We recognize that many of us were looking forward to being able to rest and recharge. We know how important this break is, particularly during this year, and look forward to this five-day break in April.

April Break will be from Monday 12th-16th of April, which is the first week of Ramadan!

You are advised to continue visiting the HWDSB website for ongoing changes in this unprecedented situation. There may be a change in important dates mentioned in the Calendar section.

Report cards will be sent home on March 11th. March 12th is a regular school day and students will attend that day as usual. Parents with concerns can call the school to book a telephone appointment with the homeroom or subject teacher. 

Please continue to do the morning COVID-19 screening for your children before sending them to school and remind them of proper hygiene with handwashing etiquettes. Please keep your child home if he/she is sick and go for the COVID-19 test in case of any symptoms.

Your cooperation is much needed and appreciated at this time.
