Attendance Policy

Absenteeism
Student’s attendance is the key to effective learning. Absence from School has a substantial negative effect on the performance. Hence, the student needs to be in class every day, on time.
If a child is going to be absent from school, the parent/guardian is expected to contact the office explaining the reason and the length of time the student is expected to be on leave. This can be done through phone, email or SMS and submit the written note one week prior to going on leave. In case of emergency, where the child has not informed, on returning child has to carry a filled record of absence.
A small number of absences may be justified if your child:
has an unavoidable medical or dental appointment (preferably these should be made after school hours or during weekends)
is too sick to go to school, or has an infectious illness.
has to go to special religious ceremony.
is required to attend a serious and / or urgent family situation.
In case of illness beyond three days, a medical certificate from a registered medical practitioner for the period of absence has to be submitted to the school. Parents are requested to plan their vacation/ program in such a way that it coincides with the holidays of the school.
Leave will not be granted on the days of tests/examinations except for extreme compassionate/ unavoidable circumstances. The parent has to intimate such absence in advance except in case of illness. Students are expected to attend school on the last working day and on reopening day after every vacation.
Attendance and Minimum Attendance Requirement
It is compulsory for students to complete 80% attendance every semester to make them eligible for the semester exams. Continued absence without leave or unexplained absence for more than two weeks at a stretch, without prior permission from the Principal, will tantamount to student having left the school.
