ATTENDENCE RULES

Regular attendance at school is in the interest of the students. It builds up a sense of devotion to duty and a habit of regularity and discipline. The students should arrive on time to the school. There is a procedure for checking late-comers. Parents' co-operation will be much appreciated to ensure punctuality.

Students who have been absent from class must have the reason entered in the regularity record in the school diary, stating briefly the cause of the absence under "ABSENT". Reasons of a private nature may be submitted in a letter. These notes need to be duly signed by the parents / guardians and countersigned by the Headmaster / Prefect. A student who is absent for more than three days on account of illness should produce doctor's certificate of fitness.

Punctuality of school timings is very important. Late arrival to school is a breach of discipline. A student who arrives late to school must enter the date and time of arrival in the regularity record under "LATE". This must be duly signed by parents / guardians and countersigned by Headmaster / Prefect.

Students who come late to school habitually may be sent back home.

Irregular attendance, habitual idleness, disobedience or conduct harmful to the moral ethos of the school are sufficient reasons for adopting strict disciplinary measures which may even lead to the dismissal of a student from the school. Those whose attendance falls short of 85% may be debarred from appearing for examinations.

Absence from class for birthdays, marriages, feasts excursions, etc; in view of anticipating or extending school vacations or in order to study are not encouraged. If a student is absent for more than 3 days, on account of serious illness or sudden emergency, a written application should be made to the Headmaster, and prior permission sought and information given. If a student is absent without leave for fifteen consecutive days, his name may be struck off the rolls. However, due notice will be given to the parent or guardian concerned before such action may be taken.

A child may leave the school during class hours with special permission of the Headmaster / Prefect and only if a written request from parents is submitted. 8. All school children should have Identity Cards obtainable from the school office. The school Identity Card must be brought / produced on demand for any school purpose.
