ISG Core Values
22 May, 2016
The month of Ramadan is expected to start on June 7 this year and we would like to take this opportunity to wish you Ramadan Mubarak and best wishes in all your preparations. We know this will be a very special time for many of you and your families.
As you are aware, fasting can be a challenge for some children depending on their age. We know that you will have thought carefully about whether your child will be fasting during this month, and the school intends to be respectful of your decisions. We would like to make appropriate arrangements for children who are fasting, so they are supported in their efforts at our school. If you would like to discuss ways that the school can support you, please come and speak to the class teacher or a member of the leadership team.
School will be operating regular hours during Ramadan. We will do our best to accommodate and support your child’s fasting needs. It would be helpful if you could tell us whether your child will be fasting so that we can ensure that proper supervision and support is in place. We understand that this can change from day to day and would ask that you simply keep in touch and let us know when you can. Finally, if your child needs a shortened day due to fasting and/or family activities related to Ramadan, please contact the main office at school. We will do all we can to support you and your family during this special time.
Once again, We wish you all a happy and productive month and all the best in all your devotions.
Dr. Paul Richards, Superintendent
Dr. Ralph Pruitt, Director of Student Services
