ABSENCE -LATE ARRIVAL IN THE SCHOOL

At DPIS, we take immense pride in our state-of-the-art infrastructure and world-class facilities designed to enrich the learning experience of our students.

1.

No student who has been absent on the previous day will be admitted to the class until the parent fills up and signs the “Record for Non Attendance” for each day the student is absent from the school stating the reasons for absence.

2.

A student returning to school after suffering from an infectious or contagious disease should produce a doctor’s fitness certificate permitting him to do so. Moreover he/she must be accompanied either by father or mother or both. Students suffering from the following diseases must observe the prescribed period of quarantine before returning to school.

• Chicken Pox – Till the scabs fall off completely.

• Cholera – Till the child has completely recovered.

• Measles – Two weeks after the rash disappears.

• Mumps – Until the swelling has gone, about one month.

• Whooping cough – Six weeks.

• Jaundice – Six weeks.

3.

Students, who require medical attention during school hours, will be sent immediately to the school infirmary with the concerned teacher’s signature. In the meantime, parents will be informed over the telephone and asked to take their ward home if required.

4.

All students are expected to attend school on the last working day of the beginning of a vacation and the opening day after the vacations. Absence for more than three days immediately after a vacation would attract strict disciplinary action. After 15 days of absence, the name of the student will be struck off the rolls.

5.

It is compulsory for a student to complete 80% of attendance in each semester to make them eligible to take the semester examinations. The percentage can be relaxed on genuine medical grounds.

6.

For sanction of leave about which the parents know from beforehand, the application for the leave must be sent to the Principal through the class teacher before the leave is availed of and not after the leave. Application reaching the Principal after the leave has been availed of will not be entertained either by the Front Office or by the Class Teacher.
