No School Due To Poor Air Quality

Assalamu alaikum parents, 

 

As we continue to struggle with poor air quality in the bay area, we want to inform you that the MCC Sunday School has made the difficult decision to close our school on Sunday, November 18, 2018.

The admin team takes this decision out of an abundance of caution for our children and our staff as the air quality forecast is expected to deteriorate. 


JazakAllah Khair.

Emergency Preparedness Planning

Salaam Sunday School Parents,

The Sunday school has now begun work on it's emergency preparedness plan. We will be working with the Pleasanton Police department in the coming weeks and months to create and implement our plan. As such you may have seen a Pleasanton Police officer on campus this past Sunday. Please don't be alarmed, this officer was scheduled to be on campus long before last Sunday, and his timing just happened to occur after a national incident at a place of worship. That being said, the officer will be visiting the campus over the next few weeks and months as we create and implement our emergency response plan. 

Please feel free to contact the Sunday School administrative staff if you have any questions or concerns. 

Jazakallah

Whole MCC School is No Shoe zone

Assalamu alaikum dear parents,

As you may all know by now, MCC is a no shoe zone and we are trying very hard to abide by these rules. This has been placed after serious consideration given to Najasa brought into the facility with unclean shoes. As the bulk of Sunday School side of the facility is used for salah practicing for younger students in weekday classes and Quranic recitation, it makes more sense as per Qari Amar and others to keep the area clean.

To make this transition easy for everyone multiple shoe racks have been positioned around the classroom areas. These shoe racks have been marked with class numbers(eg. Classroom 17, 18 &19. etc)  We know there were many issues last Sunday with children losing their shoes, and shoes piling up on the floor, but in’sha’allah MCC has ordered many additional shoe racks and we are hoping this will keep things more organized.  The racks will be in different sections of the school
Please try to have your children remove their shoes and place them on racks marked with their classroom number, this way it'll be easier for them to find their shoes at recess and dismissal time.  

PreK and KG class will have their own racks placed directly outside their classrooms to make it easier for the younger children to locate their shoes.  

We appreciate your patience and cooperation,
 

Sincerely,

MCC Admin Team
