Code of Conduct

Parents are expected to bring their children to school on time.  DROP OFF BEGINS AT 10:50AM AND FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS, WE WILL LOCK THE DOORS AT 11:05AM (CLASSES BEGIN AT 11:00AM SHARP).  PICK UP IS PROMPTLY AFTER Dhuhr prayer AT 2:10PM.  Students who arrive after the doors have been locked will need to call the administration to be admitted inside and will be marked tardy. Parents are expected to review and discuss the code of conduct and discipline with their children.

Baby-sitting or child supervision is not available after school hours. It is the responsibility of the parents to make proper transportation arrangements to transport their children to and from the school.

Students and teachers are in the school for one basic purpose: To promote the Islamic and educational development of students. To accomplish the goal, each student is expected to adhere to the following rules and meet the following disciplinary objectives:

Classroom Code of Conduct:

  • Students are expected to come to the class on time. The school expects the cooperation of the parents. In case of an absence, the parent/student is expected to contact the teacher to find out all the missed assignments and for arranging possible make-ups. Weekly homework assignments will also be available on http://classes.maceohio.com/.
  • Students should come to the class prepared each week with school supplies, books, and completed assignments.
  • Students should behave in a respectful manner towards teacher/staff and other students. They should ask and wait for permission before speaking. Students should pay attention to the teacher and not sleep in the class.
