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 – most of the time. Otherwise watch the TV or listen to KYW. Our school code is 210.
