Parents and students should follow the attached standard operating procedures also uploaded on the school’s website. Students must remain vigilant about maintaining social distance throughout the school day. Last page of the SOP is the COVID-19 Prevention Health Declaration Checklist, kindly fill the checklist and email it to the class teacher by Sunday August 29, 2021.

Please note that all our staff members have been duly vaccinated. Furthering the safety measures, we request both parents to respond and submit their vaccination records by to an ‘assignment’ created by their child’s class teacher through Google Classroom by Sunday August 29, 2021. Kindly note that unvaccinated parents will not be allowed access to the school premises.

On the days when any group is not attending physical school, the given timetable must be followed. A recorded lesson on the Google Classroom will guide students to work independently for each subject. It is essential that parents supervise the days spent at home and ensure that assigned work is duly completed and uploaded as per teacher’s instruction, to confirm child’s attendance. This will help academic progression and prepare the students for their on campus classes.

Kindly be reminded of the following salient points:

  • Students must be attired in complete School uniform, carry the ID card in person and wear a mask (keep an extra mask in their bag).
  • Temperature will be checked while students remain seated on the left side of the car – parents are requested not to disembark and follow the guidance of security staff on the road to ensure smooth traffic flow.
  • Students’ hands will be sanitized upon entrance to school gates, but they must carry a personal sanitizer for frequent use.
  • Students who are part of a household where a member has Covid-19 or is diagnosed with it themselves must inform the school immediately and isolate themselves for the prescribed period. Subsequently on producing a negative PCR students will be accommodated back on campus. During the isolation period, it is the responsibility of the child to complete all assignments posted on Google Classrooms.
  • Students must bring light snacks and water to be consumed during the 15-minute break.

Time staggers have been established to avoid overcrowding at the gates. Parents are requested to cooperate with the school, adhere to the allotted timings and not drop their child early.

Looking forward to your cooperation and support.

Stay Safe!
