Alafaq > School's Rules and Policies


As stated in the school’s Vision Statement, Alafaq international schools envisions cooperation among staff and parents. To enable the school to create critical thinkers in a global community, a shared commitment between school and home is essential. Therefore, the school’s administration would like to share the following information with the Alafaq community:


Weekly plans, schedules, and testing dates can be accessed through the school’s website, using the grade level icons.

Homework is sent on a daily basis, and can be found in the students’ homework diary.

Attendance and Early Dismissal

•Parents must ensure their children arrive to school on time daily, and prevent absences and/or early dismissal. For unavoidable circumstances, parents are asked to submit a request in writing explaining the reason their child will be absent or leaving early from school.

•Parents, siblings, and/or nannies are asked to remain in the waiting area and wait for the receptionist to call the child. This is to avoid unnecessary congestion in the halls and stairways.

•To ensure the safety of all our students, prior notification must be made to the school if the student is to leave with a friend, relative, or nanny who is unknown to the school’s administration.

•If your child is being picked up by someone other than the mother, please fill out the ID card information, attach a passport size photo, and laminate it for daily use. Students will not be released to any person without proper ID.

•Testing days are vital for the success of our students. Therefore, we take these days seriously. Students who are absent on testing days MUST provide a sick-leave report from their doctor, or a make-up test will not be made.
