" We know the secret of your success "

Absence from School

1. No student who has been absent on the previous day will be allowed to attend class unless her/his parent has entered an explanation stating the reasons for the absence, in the “Record of Non-Attendance” section of the almanac, for each day the student has been absent from school. In case a child reports to school without an explanation in almanac, then the parents will be summoned to school and child will be sent back home.

2. There is no provision for half day leave, except in cases of extreme emergency with the permission of the Principal. So students who are not well should not be sent to school even on exam/test days. Further, appointments with Doctors etc. must not be arranged during school hours.

3. Students suffering from the following diseases must observe the prescribed period of quarantine before returning to school:
Chicken Pox Till the scabs fall completely Not > 15 Days
Cholera Till the child has completely recovered Not > 15 Days
Measles Two weeks after the rash disappears Not > 20 Days
Mumps Until the swelling has gone Not > 15 Days
Whooping Cough Till the doctor certifies Not > 20 Days
Hepatitis Till the doctor certifies Not > 20 Days
4. Parents are requested to co-operate with the school and not send children till the quarantine period is over.

5. In case of absence of more than five days on Medical Grounds,Medical certificate and Prescription shall be attached along with the application on return of the student to the school after such leave.

6. Students, who require medical attention during school hours, may be sent to the school Infirmary by the teacher concerned, who will enter the nature of the complaint and sign the “School Infirmary Record” section of the almanac. Students should not, except in emergency situations, visit the school Infirmary,unless an entry has been made in the almanac by a teacher.

7. Parents will be promptly informed in the event of serious illness or emergencies and may be requested to come to school to take their ward home, if necessary.
