Dear Parents and Friends of Clarion,
I would like to wish everyone Ramadan Kareem as we enter the holy month of Ramadan.
1. Ramadan Schedule –
Just a friendly reminder on our Ramadan schedule that will be in effect until April 21. Please take note of the following schedule -
Ramadan, the holy month of fasting and spiritual reflection, is anticipated to commence on March 23 and conclude on April 21. In light of this, we have made some adjustments to our student schedule during this period, which are outlined below
Monday – Thursday – 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Friday – 8:00 AM – 11:45 AM
Please note, there will be no CCI (teacher led activities) activities taking place during this period. However, CCE (led by external vendors) activities will continue to operate as usual -
Monday – Thursday – 1:15 PM - 2:15 PM
Friday – 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Also, during this period, students who are not fasting will have a short break to take their meals.
2. Spring Break –
We would like to kindly remind you that our Spring break is scheduled from March 26 to April 7, with students expected to return on Monday, April 10. Please be advised that we will continue to follow our Ramadan schedule until after the Eid al Fitr holiday. Our regular school schedule will resume on Monday, April 24.
3. Student Attendance and Lates –
We would like to express our gratitude to all the parents who have supported our efforts to improve student attendance. Thanks to your incredible response, we are very close to achieving our attendance target of 95%, and with your ongoing commitment, we may even surpass it! We have identified a few procedural issues that we will address promptly to further improve our attendance records.
To ensure accurate data, we kindly request the following:
Attendance Facts –
Student absence for the reason of holiday travel is not considered an excused absence as per KHDA guidelines.
Please note that all extended student leaves in excess of 3 days require the submission of a request form. The form is available from our Atrium area or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Sibling Enrollment at Clarion –
If you have a younger sibling in your family who you are planning to enroll in September 2023, please reach out to Emily from our admissions team at email@example.com.
5. Clarion Sports –
Well done to the U8-U11 Swim Squad who took part in their 3rd DASSA Swimming Gala on Tuesday, March 21.

In closing, I wish everyone a wonderful weekend and I look forward to seeing everyone on Monday, April 10, 2023 after the Spring Break!
