It is mandatory for students to maintain an eighty-five percent (85%) attendance in an academic year; however, we aim for 100% attendance of our students.

Late arrivals

The School gate closes at the stipulated time given by the different branches of LACAS. All students are expected to reach school at least 10 minutes before this time. Students coming late will be issued warning slips for every 3 late comings and charged Rs.100 per day for each late arrival. In case the child comes late for the 4th time he/she will not be allowed to enter the school gate and will have to go back home.

Absences

Leave application must be submitted within two days of the leave, otherwise the student will be marked absent. A medical certificate is also necessary in case of a sick leave.

As a school rule students are not allowed to avail short leave at all. If a child has an appointment with the doctor, an application from the Parents must be received first thing in the morning.

Fee policy

  • Fee at LACAS is charged on a bi-monthly basis. Save for the summer months where they are charged monthly.
  • Fee bills are usually issued around the 20th – 25th of the billing month and are sent to parents through the students. It is the responsibility of the parents to inquire if they have not received the fee bills.
  • Late fee fines will be charged if dues are not cleared by the stipulated date.
  • If the dues remain unpaid for 20 days from the due date LACAS will issue letters stopping children from attending school. If the dues remain unpaid for 30 days from the due date of the fee bill LACAS reserves the right to remove the name of the student from the school rolls.
  • If a student leaves LACAS, at least one month’s advance notice should be given in writing or one month’s fee should be deposited with the school.
  • If a student leaves LACAS without one month’s advance written notice or one month’s fee deposited, no school leaving certificate and / or transcript will be released. All outstanding dues will be adjusted against the security deposit of students.
