Dear Parents and Friends of Clarion,
As we progress through the month of June, we are reminded that as of Monday, June 12 we have 11 school days remaining in this academic year. It is important that our students continue to attend school and families support us by ensuring their children are attending school until the last day of school.
1. Clarion Canteen and Multi-purpose Hall –
Just a friendly reminder that to maintain the cleanliness and condition of the Multipurpose Hall, we kindly request that all students wear white sole runners or non- marking colored sole shoes. Shoes with colored soles that may cause scuff marks on the floor will not be allowed.
2. Fire Drill –
Our school successfully carried out the final fire drill of this academic year on Wednesday, June 7. We commend our exceptional students and staff for their outstanding efforts in swiftly and safely evacuating the school premises. With remarkable efficiency, we were able to evacuate the building in an impressive time of 2 minutes and 46 seconds!
3. Student Re-registration for 2023-24 School Year –
We would like to thank all families for completing the re-enrollment process and paying the seat deposit to secure their child’s place for the upcoming academic year. Please note that this deposit will be fully deducted from your child’s tuition fees in September 2023.
Parents who have not paid the deposit at this time have been moved to our wait list for the coming school year. Once payment is secured the student will be removed from the wait list and will have a secured spot for the coming school year.
To secure your child’s seat or for any accounts related queries, please contact Mr. Jafar at email@example.com
We appreciate your understanding and look forward to another successful year at Clarion School.
