School uniforms will be waived this year due to the low availability; however, students are required to follow the Board of Trustee’s Policy on the student dress code. This policy can be found on the district’s website or on Furman’s Facebook page.

The first day of school for student is Tuesday, August 17. Homeroom assignments will be located on the walls in the hallway and outside of the classrooms. Staff members will be available to assist students with finding their homerooms. Also on the first day of school, all students who plan to ride their assigned bus should ride the bus in the morning so the bus driver will know the students, and the students will become familiar with their bus number and driver.  

 Drop-off/pick-up procedures:  Students who arrive by car should be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. at the student drop-off area located in the fenced area beside the school. (Please see our Facebook page for directions and map). Students may be dropped off at the main office entrance after 8:30 a.m.  Students may be picked up in the afternoon in the fenced area beside the school at 3:30 p.m.  Parents must pick students up no later than 4 p.m.  As a safety measure, all parents, students, and smaller children are asked to remain in their vehicles while waiting to pick up students.
