When needed, schedule appointments with the teachers to meet either before or after school. We encourage you to stay in regular contact with your children’s teacher. The drive back from AMCO to home is a good use of time to discuss school activities with your children.

  • Parents are not allowed in the classroom or hallway. Sometimes children misunderstand or misinterpret the information given in the class. If you hear something from your child that sounds strange or wrong, please verify the information with the teacher directly instead of passing on the wrong information to others.

  • Parents may not contact any AMCO Sunday School students on school property for grievances, complaints or concerns. All complaints must be brought to the attention of the school principal regarding other students.

  • Notify Administration by 10:00 a.m. for absences. Administration will call parents for no show after 10:40 a.m.

  • Students leaving early must sign-out at the office and notify their respective teachers in advance.

  • Parent/guardian is expected to follow Islamic dress code when dropping and picking up their children in the masjid.

  • Students are to remain inside building when being picked up after school. Staff will monitor that students get into cars with correct parents/guardians.

  • Dhur salah is part of AMCO Sunday School curriculum and it is expected for all students and parents to participate. Parent/guardian who chooses to remain outside of the musallah area must remain quiet and wait patiently while their children perform the salah.
