A tardy slip is issued to the students who arrive after 10 AM. A warning is given to the students who are tardy for more than three times without any excuse.
Al-Furqan School dress code is designed to encourage islamic modesty. Please make sure your child is dressed up in Al-Furqan School unifrm shirt provided by the school.

. Please be sure to include name, grade, date of absence and reason. The reason for absence is required for consideration as excused absence.
The school sends alert emails to the parents after three or more unexcused absences. Then committee may decide to cancel registeration to give chance to the students who are waitlisted.
Early Student Pickup:
If you are planning to pick up your child before the school dismissal time at 1:20 pm, please go to the office to sign out your child. If you are planning to pick up your child during lunch break between 12.00 pm and 12.30 pm you need to inform school by sending a written note . We will keep your child ready in the office at old or new building wherever children are located.
Please do not pick up your child directly from gym or play ground during lunch break without signing them out from the office. This would help prevent unsafe practice of taking one's child without informing the concerned personnel. We will appreciate your cooperation!
