TYPES OF ABSENTEEISM
Late to school
The school takes the absence of students from school on regular working days, very seriously. We appreciate parental help in ensuring all students reach school regularly and on time. Latecomers will not be allowed to enter school. Parents will be notified and the student will be marked as absent from school.
Permission for absence
A written application for absenting themselves from school has to be sought in case students have an important family occasion. Preferably, family functions should be limited to weekends or school holidays. The holiday list is given to the students at the beginning of the session.
In case of an illness, death or other unexpected circumstances, an application for absence should accompany the student on the day they re-join school. A medical leave certificate from the doctor needs to be presented to substantiate a medical leave.
A fair number of students are found to be regularly absent before or during exams, during school excursions, School Sports day, picnics etc. The school does not condone any absence in such cases. Students who are regular with their work are able to cope up with the demands of their courses. As far as activities are concerned, these are a regular part of the school curriculum and all students are expected to take part in them.
Many self-driven students prefer to go for special classes during school hours. Parents are requested to ensure that such classes do not clash with school. Students found playing truant, either for pleasure or for attending other courses are liable to be suspended or expelled from school.
