With this quarter quickly wrapping up, I wanted to say how proud I am of the students, staff, and parents for overcoming all of the challenges that this school year has presented. As we enter into the 4th quarter, I want to remind parents that we are currently in the hybrid model for Kindergarten through 12th grade. While I understand hesitating to send students to campus, I want to ensure you that we are following the necessary guidelines to keep our students and staff safe.
With the hybrid schedule, it is imperative that students remain informed regarding our safety policies. In order to ensure the safety of all students and staff, we ask that students review the safety protocols posted on our school website. Students, you must wear your mask properly, practice physical distancing at all times, wash your hands, and take the screening process seriously each and every day. Safety is our top priority! Approximately 86% of the ACA staff has started or completed the vaccination process, Alhamdulillah. While there have been struggles, I feel confident that we are on a path toward a greater sense of normalcy, Insha'Allah.
As we go into the next few weeks, be on the lookout for the Scholastic Virtual Book Fair details as well as the Read-A-Thon information to help support the remodel of the ACA library in anticipation of a full reopening of the library in the 2021-2022 school year. I encourage you to please continue to refer to our school website, www.azacademy.org, and our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) for additional information.
In closing, I want to reiterate our gratitude for your continued support and wish you and your family good health and good spirits, may Allah protect us all.
