Notes for Parents
1. Check the school diary & sign daily. The diary forms a link between the school authorities and the parents.
2. Give sufficient time and attention towards the progress and daily work of your child. If you wish to discuss a matter of concern, contact the school office. You will be intimated the time to meet the concerned teacher during her/his free periods.
3. Be available if it is necessary, to discuss aspects of your child's behaviour at the school. Be open to listening and considering the teacher's opinion regarding your child, even when the comments may be less than complimentary. We care for your ward and are concerned for his/her welfare.
4. Append your signature to messages written in the diary, report cards or other documents when requested to do so.
5. Your child must attend the first and the last day of the school term. Written permission must be sought from the Principal in case a child is not able to attend the school.
6. A student's name will be struck off the rolls if:
i) arrears of fees accumulate beyond one installment.
ii) he/she continues to be absent without a leave note for more than one month in succession.
7. In all official correspondence with the school, the full name of the child as well as the class and roll number should be mentioned.
8. Parents are expected to exert firm parental discipline in cases where their child's behaviour is a distracting influence to the learning opportunities for others in the school. In any event, if the services of a school teacher are sought for the private tutoring of a student after school hours, written permission must be sought from the Principal.
9. Children must be encouraged to do their homework by themselves. It is important that children develop a habit of working on their own. However, Parental supervision is important.
10. It is imperative for parents to attend all Parent Teacher Meetings. The management will take a serious view of parents regularly absenting themselves from such meetings, or those who show disinterest or unconcern towards their child's education.
11. a) Keep your child at home if he/she is suffering from contagious diseases like mumps, measles, chicken pox, conjunctivitis, etc.
Your child is to attend school only with a doctor's fitness certificate.
The following period of isolation is recommended:
Measles: 5 days after the rash disappears
Mumps: 1 week after the swelling subsides
Chicken Pox: Till the blisters dry & fall off.
Conjunctivitis: Till no white discharge comes out of the eyes.
b) In case of illness or some other commitment, children should not be sent to school at all, even if there is any test. It is extremely unreasonable to send the child who is ill to the school for the test. His/her health is more important. Children will not be allowed to leave school in between if they come only for the test. If a parent is insistent and wishes the child to go home, then his/her test will stand cancelled.
c) No Test or Examination date will be brought forward or postponed. If a child is absent on medical grounds, his final result will be decided on his year's work. Results once declared are final and will not be reconsidered. The Principal's decision will be final.
12. Points to be noted while celebrating child's birthday in school:

14. A teacher should not be criticized in front of the child, as it undermines his/her respect for the teacher and the school. You can meet the Principal regarding any complaint.
15. Parents are requested not to meet the class teacher/subject teacher or their children during school hours in their class rooms, however, they can meet them in the reception area after obtaining prior permission from the Principal.

Parents are called upon to use their own discretion while sending their children to school on such days. Parents should understand that as vehicular traffic is often affected, they may be inconvenienced by the school transport facility on such days for obvious reasons. Parents should bear in mind that if a holiday is declared by the State Administration through the newspapers, they should comply with the same and not send their children to school even if the school transport arrives at their door to pick up the children, as transporters/drivers on their daily routes cannot be intimated by the school authorities in the morning, on the declaration of the holiday, Parents are informed that holidays declared in the newspapers will be adhered to by the school.
