Student Pick Up from Al-Furqan School

Student safety is one of the primary concerns of the Al-Furqan School. We would like all the parents who are coming to pick up their children to follow the following policy.
School dismissal time is 1:20pm (Spring Schedule) and 12.50pm (Fall Schedule) so please be there by that time.
Kg-2nd Grade Parents: Our students of Grades KG-2nd Grade remain in their classes until their parents come to pick them up.
Please wait in the lobby until the bell rings, and then pick up the children from their classrooms.
3rd and 4th Grade Parents: 3rd and 4th Grade students will proceed to the Musallah upon dismissal. Plan to be in Musallah by that time. Please be in charge of your children after 1:20pm as all students should be in appropriate supervision all the time. Praying Duhar prayer after school is required as a part of the curriculum so please plan to pray with your children. We will appreciate your cooperation.

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!

Food Sharing at Al-Furqan School

Al-Furqan School has a very careful policy about any food sharing with Al-Furqan students. There are students at Al-Furqan School who are either allergic or sensitive to certain foods therefore we don’t allow parents, teachers, or anybody else to share any food with our students without permission from the office.

Al-Furqan School committee will appreciate your cooperation in respecting our policies.

  • Please make sure that children drop off from right hand side.
  • To avoid the risk involved with street traffic, children should only be dropped off inside the school campus in front of the main building. Children should never be dropped off in the street.
  • Please do not move the cones to park or enter into reserved areas. Loading unloading is not permissible in the handicapped and reserved parking areas as it leads to traffic jam by Gate 1.
