Dear Parents,

The school will soon re-open! Here are some really important things you need to note before the school starts.

In Kindergarten, children cry till they adjust to the school environment. Do understand that this is common, a routine thing. We all probably cried when we went through that phase too. Please do not ask to accompany the child to the classroom or keep peeping in. If the children see you, they cry even more. It takes around a month for most kids to get adjusted. The school staff is all busy trying to make the children feel comfortable. So do not keep calling to ask how the child is. If there is a problem, we will call you.

Routine

  • Snacks are the first or second period every day.
  • Do not use hair pins. Children put them in the mouth. Use BLACK COTTON hair bands instead.
  • Absolutely NO safety pins on the uniform (for the child’s safety). Please understand and co-operate.
  • KG kids LOVE playing with their handkerchief and also tend to forget them and lose them. You may check in the pool of ‘lost and found’ but please do not create an issue if you don’t find yours. Many people are agitated because ‘expensive’ handkerchiefs are exchanged. Please understand that the school really cannot do much in such a case.

Students must carry their worksheet folder to school every day with sharpened pencils, an eraser and a ruler, in the stationery pouch provided in the folder. No sharpeners are allowed to be carried. Please do not send any fancy stationery items. Craft and drawing materials will be given in the school itself.
