Attendance Policies

Students are not allowed to leave the school compound for any reason unless they have prior permission from the principal or concerned authority. For special permission to leave school early due to medical appointments, written requests should reach the principal or concerned authority before the commencement of classes on a particular day.

Any student who is absent for more than 5 percent of the total number of working days in a term may not be eligible to take the tests or exams for that term .These include excused as well as unexcused absences but special provisions can be made for the students with a prolonged illness.

A medical certificate must be produced before the child returns to the school. Students must submit letters of absence to their principal or the concerned authority before they resume their classes. The letters should clearly state the reason for absence.

If a student continues to be absent for more than a week without giving information to the principal or concerned authority, his/her name will be struck off the rolls and the students has to be readmitted. The school will not arrange special tests or exams missed due to absence.
