Attendance Rules for students

It is important for children to be prompt to school and in attendance every day . If your child is unable to attend school, please call the office by 9:00am and state the child’s name, grade , who is making the call and a specific reason for the absence; such as sore throat, flu/cold, asthma, fever, doctor or dentist appointment, etc. The office is required to report the daily attendance to the Principal by 930 a.m. Please help us to keep your child(ren) safe by reporting your child’s absence promptly.

We want to work with you to help your child be successful in school. Because school attendance is a major factor of school success, we appreciate your support in maintaining regular school attendance. We also want to thank you for your cooperation in bringing in a note from the doctor/dentist and helping the children see how important good attendance is.

The following rules will govern our attendance policies for this year

1.When ever a child is absent please make it a point to send a leave letter / note in the diary through the student explaining the reason for his/her absence .
2. Chronic medical conditions must be certified by a doctor to be excused.
3. Late coming will be excused only after producing a doctor's certificate. No other reason for late coming will be accepted.
4. Please schedule vacations, personal business and other family activities for the weekend, evenings, or during regular school holidays.

Regular attendance and on time arrival at school are crucial to developing responsibility, healthy attitudes, and positive behaviors toward school and what it has to offer.

Please note that in all classes a minimum of 90% attendance is mandatory to be eligible for promotion to the next grade .

If it is necessary to pick your child up during school hours, please email or send a note to the school before hand so that the teachers know about it. When you arrive at school to pick your child up, please collect the permission slip from the school office and show the same at the gate. The child will not be sent out from the school with drivers / or other relatives unless a written request is given by the parent to the school. A telephone call from the parents in this regard will not be accepted.

School attendance is vital, but not when it may jeopardize the health of others. Please keep your child at home if he/she shows any signs of illness. This will prevent the spread of disease and allow your child to recuperate more quickly.

Some signs of illness are

1. Restlessness at night
2. Rash
3. Fever(must be fever-free for 24 hours to come to school)
4 . Nausea or vomiting
5. Runny nose
6. Red, watery eyes
