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.
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.
School Identity Cards
All parents, guardians, drivers and maids need to bring the child’s school identity card (ID) when they come to pick up their child. In case the parents or the person who has come to pick up the child fails to bring the ID card they will have to wait for a gate pass to be issued. A fine of Rs 100/- will be added to the fee challan for each gate pass that is issued to the child. In case a student’s ID card is lost, the school office must be informed immediately. A duplicate card will be issued for Rs.200.
Leave application must be submitted within two days of the leave, otherwise students 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.
