There is a total of 180 school days. In the event that school is closed due to inclement weather, Al Aqsa utilizes the weather opening/closing procedure of the Philadelphia School District. If they are closed due to bad weather, Al Aqsa is too. If they are open, Al Aqsa is open. Otherwise watch the TV or listen to KYW. Our school code is 210.
