As-salamu ‘alaikum, 

As you know, the NJ Department of Education has advised all schools to make plans for remote (online) education of students in the case that schools need to close to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.  Some educational institutions have begun online education as a preventative measure and Pillars needs to finalize its plans for distance learning.

Therefore, Pillars Preparatory Academy will be having half days on Thursday, March 12th and Friday, March 13th (Dismissal time: 12:30 pm).  In addition, Pi Day will be postponed until further notice. This, in-sha’ Allah, will provide the Pillars staff the time necessary to complete the setup of an online learning environment for the Pillars students.

Additional information will be provided to parents and students should Pillars need to implement distance learning.  We apologize for the inconvenience of the half days and hope that families understand that Pillars is taking this precautionary measure to ensure continued education in the case of closure or emergency. 

We thank you for your understanding and wish you, your loved ones and the community the best of health was-salamu ‘alaikum.
