Policies And Procedures

Arrival

Parents/Guardian can drop off their child in the morning between 7:30am -8:00am. Parents should ensure that their child is handed over to any of our caregivers before leaving the premises.  We advise parents to say their goodbyes as soon as their child is handed over to a member of staff and allow their child to walk independently to their classroom as this will serve as an important step towards the child’s independence.

If your child is not going to attend school due to illness or any other reason, kindly let us know as soon as possible to enable us plan for the day’s activities.

**Parents are required to inform staff of any serious illness or communicable/ contagious disease with their child or within their family.

 

Late Arrivals

Parents are advised to escort their child to the front desk and sign them in if they arrive after 8:00 am. A member of the admin staff will walk your child into their classroom.  Parents are advised to ensure that their child resumes at the specified resumption time so they can have a good start in the morning.

Pick –Up

The official closing time for preschool classes is 2:30pm. Please note that for safety and security reasons, only parents or authorized guardian on the mandate/consent form will be allowed to pick up a child.

Kindly notify the school in advance if someone else other than those on the mandate form will be picking your child as no child will be released to an unauthorized individual.

Late Pick- Up

Parents/Legal Guardian should pick up their child promptly at the end of the school day.  Pupils who are not picked up within the specified closing time will be taken to the after-school care room and their parents will be charge for late pick- ups.

A minimum of 2 weeks written notice is required prior to withdrawal of service for children in the crèche.

 

Sick Pupils

Parents are advised not to bring a sick child or children to school. Children with infectious diseases such as chicken pox, measles, diarrhea, conjunctivitis, mumps etc. should be kept away from school until the child is advised to return to school by qualified medical personnel. A child who becomes ill during the course of the day to the point where they cannot participate in normal day- day activities would be administered first aid, after which parent will be contacted and advised to pick up the child.

Medication

Parents of children who are undergoing medication from infections that do not pose a threat to other children will need to hand over the medication to the school nurse.  Parents will also need to complete a form authorizing the school to administer the medication. Refusal to fill the form will results in medication NOT being administered to the child.

At Deenal School we are committed to being open and honest in all situations. Parents with any complaints, grievances or suggestions should not hesitate to contact the head of school or speak to the school administrative officer so that the issue can be resolved on time. In the event of any concerns raised by staff, parents/guardians a meeting can be scheduled to address the issues.
