We stress the importance of regular attendance at school. Ensure that your child is regular & punctual.
In the event of the student being late to school or absent from school, the absence record must be filled in and sent, upon his/her return to school. We urge parents to have all absences documented in the School Handbook. If a student needs to be away from school for an extended period (for more than 2-3 days), a request letter from the parent/guardian prior to the absence is required.
The school does not encourage the children to be taken early or brought late to the school. In case it is unavoidable, the parent must make a note to the class teacher. While taking a child early from the school, a gate pass should be collected from the class teacher.
Students must either have a wholesome breakfast or carry sufficient snack with them. Kindly ensure that you send a heavy snack (sandwiches, chapattis, fruits etc.) that would serve a substantial meal till the child reaches home for lunch. Please refrain from sending snacks like biscuits, chips etc only. An empty stomach is harmful to their physical as well as intellectual growth. The same would apply when students stay back after school for classes or activities.
Parents are requested to inform the school, if the child is unwell. In the event of contagious diseases, parents are advised to keep the child at home. Do ensure that your child carries an umbrella/raincoat to school during the monsoon.
First aid is given at the school to deal with bumps and bruises, aches and pain, coughs and sniffles. The student may avail of the sick room in such cases. However, we would contact the parent/guardian, if the child needs more medical attention and needs to go home early. If the student needs to carry medication to school please ensure that a note with regard to the same is included in the handbook without fail.
In case your child needs to have any medicine during school, you must specify the dosage and time for administration in the Handbook. The medicine that is sent must be wrapped in a cover and stapled on to the handbook and if it is a bottle, it has to be handed over to the supporting staff on the morning bus and NOT KEPT IN THE CHILD’S BAG.
It is advisable to keep the teacher informed about problems such as an illness or any other complication your child may have. If your child is ill, we urge you to keep him/her at home where rest will bring a quick and complete recovery.
In case of any emergency that may occur at school, we will get in touch with the parent after giving First Aid and seek their advice on further course of action. If illness/injury merit immediate attention, the child will be taken to a medical practitioner and given appropriate medical help before the information is passed on.
Children are naturally proud of their growth and development. Hence their birthdays are acknowledged during the assembly. In order to help the child to understand the importance of sharing, they are allowed to gift books or donate books to the library.
Students travelling by the school transport are under the supervision of the bus driver and the attendant. The driver and the attendant have the authority to enforce the regulations laid down for conduct. Disorderly conduct or refusal to follow the directions will be sufficient reason for the withdrawal of the student’s use of school transport by the school authorities. Children should be escorted to and from the school by authorized persons only.
Student coming to school by their own transport must reach in time for the assembly. Students are not allowed to come to school driving vehicles, even if they have a driving license. Bicycles are permitted. Students who require a change in the bus route for a day or more must inform the class teacher and get the bus pass issued.
Drivers of students commuting to school by their own transport (autos, cars, vans, etc.) and authorized persons escorting the students to school will be issued an entry pass to enter the school premises which must be available on demand. In the event of a change of driver/vehicle, please see that the entry pass is available on demand. This is in the safety and interest of your child.
School timings should be strictly adhered to. The morning assembly begins at 09:00 am.
All the students should wear the prescribed uniform. Parents must ensure that their children come to school neatly dressed and maintains the dress code prescribed for him/her.
