  • A student who arrives late is required to bring a legitimate explanatory note from the parent/guardian. The school may for serious reasons, including repeated absence, disregard the note,and disallow absence.
  • All explanatory notes for absence/late arrival should be handed over to the class teacher. No one who is late or has been absent on the previous day will be admitted to the class, without the permission of the Principal.

  • Attendance on the last day prior to vacations and the first day of the school after vacations is absolutely essential. Pupils who do not join school on this day are liable to forfeit their admission. Readmission may be considered. The names of pupils who remain absent without leave for one school week may be struck off the rolls. A punitive fine may be imposed on those who come late as a measure of exemplary punishment.
  • Any unscheduled holidays may be made good by the school without prior intimation to parents/guardians.
  • Confirmation regarding any unscheduled holidays can be done by checking the school website or the notice board at the gate but not with the janitor.
  • Students will not be allowed to leave school early unless parents/ guardians present a written note to the office. Express permission by the Principal is necessary.
  • Parents are not allowed to pick-up students using school buses, from the buses or from the gates, without informing the office and the bus teacher / attendant in-charge, as this could cause serious problems both for the child and the school. In case parents take their children without informing the school and the bus teacher/ attendant in-charge, or when a student, at the end of the school, chooses to take a means of transport, other than his/her designated transport, will be asked to leave the school, as this behavior can lead to very serious consequences.
