It is our pleasure to welcome you to Granada Islamic School (GIS). We at GIS are dedicated to providing your children with the best possible education in an Islamic environment. Your support of our policies and adherence to our procedures ensure the smooth and effective operation of the school. The cooperation of school and home is one of our major foundations because it is an integral part of the success of your child.

Absence from School
Failure to attend school will be considered an absence. Parents are responsible to notify the school of absence by 9:00 am by phone or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and to include the reason for the absence.
Homework / Assignments
Homework is comprised of activities in which a student engages away from the school while also having a correlation to schoolwork and learning. Research shows that students can learn more when they actively engage in a variety of homework activities. We do encourage parents to become involved in their child’s education by discussing with him/her homework assignments.
