Please go through this handbook carefully and refer
to it when in doubt regarding the procedures,
policies, rules and expectations at Sanskriti School.

The „Parents‟ Handbook‟ will give you clear


guidelines regarding School policies, procedures,
programmes and rules. Do read them carefully and
read out the relevant parts to your child so that
he/she understands the school‟s expectations and
his/her own responsibilities. Once you receive the
Parents‟ Handbook it is assumed that you have gone
through it thoroughly and will abide by all the rules
and regulations mentioned in it.
The school management reserves the sole right to
make changes, introduce new relevant policies as
and when situations and realities demand.

DIRECTOR‟S NOTE

Dear Sanskriti Family Member,

I extend a very warm welcome to you and thank you for having faith in us and entrusting your
young one in our care. We will endeavour to live up to your expectations and be caring mentors and
fellow travellers in the wondrous journey of learning.
The first and permanent teacher in a child‟s life is the parent. Whatever takes place during
school hours is deeply affected by what goes on before or after.
Hence it‟s important that parents and teachers need to join forces and form a working
partnership. Both need to know the difference between the words that demoralize and those that give
courage; between the words that trigger confrontation and those that invite co-operation; between the
words that make it impossible for a child to think or concentrate and the words that free the natural
desire to learn.
We have an additional responsibility to today‟s generation of children. Never before have, so
many young people, been exposed to so many images of casual cruelty. Never before have they
witnessed so many vivid demonstrations of problems being solved by beatings or bullets or bombs.
Never before has there been such an urgent need to provide our children with the living model of how
differences can be resolved with honest and respectful communication. They must reach out for the
words they have heard from the important people in their lives rather than reaching for violent means to
express their frustration or rage.
Both parents and teachers need to adapt themselves to new teaching techniques and
methodologies. Each parent and teacher must learn to grow along with the child in his/her care.
Parenting and teaching are both challenging roles. Since we have become parents and teachers by
choice, let‟s accept the challenge and enjoy the joyous path of learning along with our young ones.
We must remember at all times that children need our unconditional love, support and
acceptance. We need to weed out unrealistic competition with others and must encourage the habit of
competing and improving one‟s own abilities. We have immense responsibilities not only to children
but also to the nation and humanity at large. May God give us the skills, courage and grace to raise a
generation of torch bearers who will make their mark in different walks of life and do us all proud.
We need to remember that each child is a unique individual, hence we must be patient, loving,
supportive and above all, realistic about our child‟s interests, potential, ability and performance levels.

I look forward to your close co-operation and hope that our association is a long and enriching
one.

With best wishes and warm regards

Mrs. Devyani Mungali


Director & Founder
Sanskriti Group of Schools

UNITY
I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there
The clay they used was a young child‟s mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher – the tools she used
Were books, music and art.
The other, a parent, with a guiding hand
And a gentle, loving heart.

Day after day, the teacher toiled


With a touch that was deft and sure.
While the parent laboured by her side.
And polished and smoothest it o‟er
And when at last their task was done.
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had moulded into the child
Could neither be sold nor bought.

And each agreed they would have failed


If each had worked alone.
For behind the teacher stood the school
And behind the child, the home.

School Almanac:
 Students are expected to use their school almanac daily to write down class assignments, appointments
and special information. When used consistently, almanacs are not only a great organizational tool for
the students, but also an effective communication tool for teachers and parents. It is mandatory that
parents review the almanac with their child daily, to ensure that assignments are being completed, to
understand the activities that are going on in the classroom and to check any remarks written by the
Teacher / Principal. Almanacs are a great place for parents to write notes (in case of longer notes, please
use a separate sheet of paper) or comments for teachers. Each teacher will monitor the almanac;
therefore, students are expected to have their almanac with them every day. PARENTS ARE REQUIRED
TO SIGN THEIR CHILD‟S ALMANAC DAILY. PARENTS ARE ALSO REQUIRED TO FILL UP THE PRE-PTM
FORM ATTACHED IN THE ALMANAC FOR EACH PTM TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK ON SCHOLASTIC AND
COSCHOLASTIC AREAS.

admin office must be informed by mail or a written application. Please ensure that this is acknowledged.
 Each student will be given an Almanac at the beginning of the year. A new almanac will be issued if the
child loses/misplaces the almanac. Rs. 150/- will be charged for the same.

intimate the school office immediately in writing. In the beginning of every academic year, the emergency
medical information and other details must be updated / completed by the parents through a given form, and
returned to the school. In case the parents fail to do so, then the parents will not hold the school responsible in
case a medical complication arises during school hours due to the lack of important medical information about
the child. It is vital that this information is accurate, especially in the event of an emergency.

IN CASE THE PARENTS FAIL TO APPRISE THE SCHOOL OF CHANGED CONTACT NUMBERS
AND ADDRESSES, THE SCHOOL WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY COMPLICATIONS ARISING
IN AN EMERGENCY.

6. PAYMENT OF FEES (TUITION, TERM AND TRANSPORT)

7. CURRICULUM, INSTRUCTION AND EVALUATION


The CBSE Board has set learning standards for all the students. Students at the elementary level build
foundational knowledge, skills and understanding of concepts. Students are given a variety of assessments at
different grade levels. These assessments help us determine what students know and are able to do at different
points in time. You will be apprised of your child‟s progress by the teachers during the Parent-Teacher
Meetings scheduled twice in a term. If need be, then the teachers may also contact you for a meeting in the
middle of a term.
Evaluation Process:
Nursery to Class I:
Continuous Assessment and Evaluation is conducted following clear guidelines and parameters laid down by
the School for the Pre- Primary and by CBSE for Class I. This is an effective, tried and tested system which
gives a true picture of the child‟s ability, skill sets and progress, without the unrealistic expectations and
evaluation by traditional tests / exams for this age level. Parents must be realistic about their child‟s potential
and learning curve. Remember each child is unique, hence, comparisons don‟t help. Assessment is carried
through one-on-one observation of oral, practical and basic written exercises and worksheets. A child‟s conduct
is also observed and recorded.

assessments (WA) is given at the beginning of the session in the Annual Planner. The syllabus for every written
assessment is given a week in advance. The assessment is based on the CCE guidelines laid down by the CBSE,
which is very close to our tried and tested evaluation system.
Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation will be conducted throughout the academic session.
Classes II to IV: Each term will have three cycles of weekly Assessments (WA) based on various subject-
wise parameters.
Class V: Each term will have only two cycles of weekly assessments (WA) based on various subject-wise

child’s performance in the class / tests. These classes are conducted in the extra-curricular activities periods,
like Art & Craft, Games etc, only after taking the Parents’ permission to do so.

8. HOMEWORK / PROJECT WORK POLICY


Sanskriti School believes that homework is an important part of the overall instructional programme. As an
extension of learning experiences continued beyond the classroom, homework is a sound practice when used to
accomplish the following purposes:
 To practice, review and reinforce what students have learnt
 To apply skills to new situations and to real life
 To promote good study habits
14
 To encourage responsibility for meeting obligations
 To show students that learning takes place in school, at home and in the community
 To encourage discussion between parent and child regarding educational activities
 To provide parents the opportunity to be involved in their child‟s academic progress and show that they
value education.

GUIDELINES FOR HOMEWORK


 Besides general homework or assignments required to be done outside the regular class time, class work
designated / assigned to be done during school hours but not completed during the school day, will also be
considered as a homework assignment. We will endeavour to help students to complete the class work in
school but can‟t ensure the same.
 Homework is expected to be completed, to the best of a student‟s ability, when it is due. Students may get
an extension for an assignment if a parent provides a note with a reasonable explanation why the homework
was not completed. Parents will be notified if their child is a chronic homework defaulter. Remember:
“Failure is not an option.” Work must be completed. Please refrain from writing letters to the school
asking teachers to excuse your child for not doing his / her work on time.
 The amount of homework to be assigned and the time anticipated to complete assignments will vary for the
various class levels and is determined by individual teachers. Time spent on homework should be
commensurate with student abilities and needs in subject areas. Contact the teacher if your child spends
unusually long periods of time on his / her homework.
 Success in school and self-esteem is dependent upon regular classroom attendance. Your child will benefit
by attending school consistently. In case your child is sick for more than one day, then please contact the
school and make arrangements with fellow students staying in your vicinity for work to be sent home.
 All the children are expected to read and write 15-30 minutes at home. This is in addition to any other
assigned work.
POLICY REGARDING CHILDREN JOINING TUITIONS OR COACHING CLASSES FOR
ENTRANCE TO MEDICAL / ENGINEERING COLLEGE
Our school doesn‟t encourage students enrolling for tuitions after school hours as we have an efficient teaching
staff and the teacher / taught ratio is excellent. If parents feel that there is a need for the same, then they need to
explain the rationale behind doing so to the teacher concerned and the Principal/HM.
It has been observed that some parents are giving coaching classes more importance than the school‟s
educational programme (in a bid to help their children join professional colleges after school).
The following things have been observed in the conduct and attitude of such children:
1. Fatigue and boredom at school; they often disturb other children.
2. Disinterest in the lessons taught at school.
3. False sense of confidence, that they are much superior to their peers.
4. School assignments not being given priority and importance.
WHILE AT SANSKRITI, THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME AT SCHOOL AND THE CBSE
CURRICULUM WILL HAVE TO BE GIVEN FIRST PRIORITY.
Parents must seek permission from the school before enrolling their children in coaching classes for
preparation of entrance to Medical / Engineering Colleges.

9. SANCTION OF LEAVE:
The school does not believe in sanctioning leave, as it would be difficult to compensate for the school activities.
Parents need to use their discretion with regard to the same. In case of unavoidable reasons the school should be
kept informed. Please don’t send an application and then assume that your child can avail leave.

15
THE SCHOOL WILL NOT HOLD ANY RETESTS OR EXAMS OR EXTRA CLASSES for children
missing school for pleasure trips, family functions or guests at home.

LEAVE DURING ASSESSMENTS: No leave must be taken during Assessments.


Policy for Leave during WA/Unit Test/Mid-Term Exam/Final Exam:
 If a child is absent for a pen and paper test (WA)/Unit Test because of medical / emergency reasons,
then an average of the marks of other tests / WA assessments taken during that WA (term) period will be
considered till Class V only. Students from Class VI onwards will be marked Ab. in the report card, and
the final percentage will not be calculated.
 For non-written tests like orals, projects, quizzes, role-plays, experiments, practicals etc., a retest or an
alternate test may be administered provided the reason for absence is genuine. (No family functions or
pleasure trip will be considered as a genuine reason for leave).
 Children need to understand and respect the importance of deadlines for submissions. Project work
submissions like research presentations, scrap books and portfolios etc., the due date is sacrosanct.
 In case an unwell child is sent to school, just to write his/her WA, the parents will be called and the child
will be sent home. In such a case, the WA paper of this child will not be evaluated and graded by the
teacher. Hence, parents are requested not to send their unwell child to school just for a Test/Exam.
Unless there is an emergency / medical reason, children may get a zero for not submitting the project on time. In
case of an emergency / medical reason, the date of project submission may be extended at the teacher’s
discretion, but the parents must not encourage the children by sending apology notes citing frivolous reasons for
not meeting deadlines.

FOR MID- TERM / FINAL EXAM:


No leave will be granted during Mid Term/Final Exam: for personal reasons like marriages, family functions
etc. In absolute emergency / medical case, the school may take the decision to administer a retest. THE
SCHOOL’S DECISION IN SUCH CASES WILL BE FINAL.

10. FIELD TRIPS/EDUCATIONAL VISITS:


Our school provides wonderful field trip opportunities. Permission / Consent slips are printed in the school
Almanac for all the trips and should be signed by the parents before the trip.
No charges for transport will be taken from the students for the trips planned within Pune. However, if
outstation trips are planned, then parents will be expected to bear all expenses for the same.
The children need to come for excursions wearing the school uniform (kurta-pyjama / salwar-kurta) and must
have their student ID-Card with them. The parents must fill in and sign the excursion permission slip in the
almanac. In case a child fails to bring the permission slip, then he / she will not be allowed to join the trip /
excursion.
(On the day of the field trip, each child must be attired in neat and clean (ironed) uniform along with ID-Card,
and carry things according to the teacher’s directions.)
Note: The School takes adequate safety measures and precautions during transit. The School, Management or
Bus Contractor, shall not be held liable for any injury, accident or damage.

11. FRIDAY ACTIVITY CLUB [CLASS I TO X]


Students of Classes I to X (I-VII – U & W), will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of after school
extra-curricular activities on all Fridays of the month. Bus transportation will be provided on these days. The
priority to choose an activity is given to the child alone. This must be done with great care by the child, as
no changes in the activity club will be entertained by the school during the ongoing session. Only for
„Paid Clubs‟ will the parents have a say in their child‟s choice of club.

16
If students of Class XI and XII wish to attend any of the Friday Clubs, then they will be allowed to
be a part of a Club for the complete session. In that case, they will leave school on Fridays at 03.30 p.m. with
other children in their regular school buses.

12. COMPETITIONS:
Inter- House Competitions are regularly held in school .We also encourage our children to participate in
Inter- Campus school Competitions.
Intra-School Competitions: Information about Intra-School Competitions is given in the Annual Planner.
Parents need to check the schedule regularly and prepare their child for the same.
Inter-School Competitions: As and when there is an Inter-School Competition, parents will be notified
through circulars that will be sent in the child‟s almanac. Competitions are also conducted by the CBSE which
will be notified as and when informed by the Board.
Parents must sign the consent form given in the school almanac if child is participating in Intra Campus
or Inter School competitions.

Houses:
 All the children from Classes I – XII (VII-U & W) are allotted houses, to inculcate the spirit of co-
operation, collaboration, healthy competition and competence.
 All the students from these classes are categorized into four houses.
 The groups are heterogeneous and consist of children having mixed abilities.
 The house names are Kalam (Yellow), Bose (Blue), Raman (Red) and Bhabha (Green).
 Each house has its own coloured T-shirt. The child must wear the house uniform on all inter-house
events and on the day when his / her class has a games period.
 The child will continue in the same house till he / she graduates out of school.
 The School Head Boy, School Head Girl, House Captains and Vice-Captains are elected by middle,
secondary and senior secondary school teachers. One teacher is in-charge of each individual house. All
teachers are also allotted houses.
 Rolling trophies and awards are given for the year for the House with the maximum points.
 Under no circumstances, the parents should request for a change of the allotted house to the child.

13. CODE OF CONDUCT


Attendance:
Attendance is a critical factor for each student‟s school success, especially in a school like Sanskriti, where it is
difficult to replicate a day‟s teaching accompanied by its planned and graded multi-sensory activities.
Successful completion of each subject area requires regular class participation and out-of-class preparation.
Failure to meet the requirement will affect a student‟s progress. Recognizing that, parents are responsible for
assuring satisfactory attendance patterns for their children.
 Attendance is compulsory on the first day after and last day before the Summer / Winter / Diwali /
Session Break.
 All the students need to maintain at least 80% attendance throughout the academic session.
 Attendance for Sports Day, Annual Day, National Festivals (26th January, 15th August), Educational
Exhibitions, Excursions and any special event is compulsory.

Late Arrivals:
In case a child misses his / her bus for some reason, then he / she must be dropped at the Admin office within 15
minutes of the first bell. Thereafter, the child will be marked absent and the parents will be requested to take
the child home. The parent / escort will be required to sign in the Late Arrival Register.

17
Absence:
Regular attendance in school is necessary to succeed; hence students should be in school daily unless they have
the following reasons for absence:
 Sickness
 Medical emergency or death in the family
 Impassable roads, or weather making travel unsafe
 Religious observance
 Quarantine
 Remedial health treatment

Parents need to fill the Leave Form Application given in the almanac in case their ward(s) remains absent.
(Some parents have been sending leave applications on pages torn from their children‟s note book,
enclosed in used envelopes. We believe that children learn what they see. It is imperative that parents set
the right example for their young ones to emulate.) When absent, students and parents should make
arrangements to make up for all missed work. Missing a day in school cannot be only compensated by taking a
fellow student‟s notebook and copying the work done in school. The teacher will not be able to give another
child‟s book for work completion.
Parents should plan their holiday schedules and family outings after seeing the school calendar and schedule.
Extending leave after long holidays and being absent from school on functions, celebrations and working
Saturdays (Middle, Secondary and Senior Secondary School) is NOT AN OPTION. The school expects the
parents to take the activities, assessments and functions in the annual planner very seriously.
Please note that there is no option for early departure from the school. In case of trips or functions, please
plan your schedule in such a manner that the child attends the school for the full duration. In case of
unavoidable situations, the parents have to decide between absence and full day attendance of their child
from school. This decision is to be made for WA / Unit Tests / any other Assessment day too. If a child is
sent to school only for an Assessment and is taken home after it, for whatever reason, then the
Assessment paper of that child will not be corrected and marked.

Turnout and Student Uniform:


1. Our uniform has been chosen with great deliberation and care and we take great pride in our uniform.
We feel that most schools are still suffering from the nostalgia of the British Raj when young Indians
were sent to school in shirts, pants, skirts, ties and belts; a uniform completely unsuitable for the Indian
climate. We have tried to break free from that mould. We have chosen salwar-kurta for girls and kurta-
pyjama for boys, which are most suitable for the Indian climate, and the track suit which will be suitable
for yoga, games and P.T.
Pre-Primary Classes:
Blue round neck T-Shirt with School Logo, Grey Track Pant, Black Floaters, White Hair Band for girls.

bag to avoid forgetting it at home.
16. Children are prone to forget or misplace their belongings like water bottles, tiffin boxes and jackets.
Please ensure that all belongings of your child are labelled and marked (please use a permanent marker
for this purpose). For Pre-Primary children and children of Classes I to IV, shoes and floaters must have
the child‟s name clearly written with a marker.
NOTE: The school is not responsible for finding misplaced footwear and other articles.
17. Please don‟t give the school an opportunity to send remarks about untidy, faded uniforms or ones the
children have outgrown.
18. Parents are requested to buy the requisite number of uniforms (kurta-pyjama /salwar- kurta, sports
uniform, socks, floaters, shoes and hair band) at the beginning of the session itself, to avoid any
inconvenience to their child during the session. Parents must fill the Uniform Requisition slip wisely, as
they have to plan in advance for bigger sizes.
19. The uniform outlet is provided only for the convenience of the parents. No complaints regarding the
fabric, stitching or quality of the uniforms will be entertained by the school. The uniform vendor can
also be contacted on 7410045232. Please email your feedback to the uniform vendor Mr. Tripathi at
the email – id
uniformmatters@gmail.com „cc‟ a copy to the school on admin@sanskritischoolpune.in

Please note that that the uniform requisition can be placed only twice in a session, the information
of which will be given to the parents much in advance.
19
NOTE: 1. Uniforms once purchased will not be exchanged or returned.
2. The turnout and student uniform rules should be followed even during the assessments.

Identity Card:
THE IDENTITY CARD IS AN INTRINSIC PART OF THE SCHOOL UNIFORM
 Each child will be issued an identity card in the beginning of the year.
 Each child must wear the identity card (with a recent photograph in school uniform) to school daily.
 The parent identity card, should be produced by the parents / relatives / individuals escorting the
children from the bus stop and also during a visit to the school.
 In case an identity card is lost or damaged, then a requisition should be given for a new one, along
with the necessary payment of Rs.100/-. If parents lose/misplace their ID card, they will be required
to pay Rs.50/- for a parent ID Card.
 In case the identity card‟s cord is frayed, then please get it replaced with a new one which costs
Rs. 30/-.
 In case parents change their residence, contact numbers or child‟s bus, then they must get a new
identity card made for their child.
 In case a child is a frequent defaulter and does not wear his identity card despite repeated
reminders then the school will take a token amount as a fine for the same.
 The identity card is for your child‟s safety, so please ensure that it carries the correct information and
that your child wears it to school daily.
 The identity card can be kept in the child‟s school bag to avoid forgetting it at home.
 In case a child forgets to wear his/her ID card to school, then he/she will be given a temporary ID
card and will be charged Rs. 20/- each time. The parents should send the amount the very next day in
a sealed envelope with the child‟s name, class and division written on it.

Label:
Please ensure that all your child‟s belongings like uniform, jacket, shoes, floaters, bag, water-bottle, lunch box
etc. are labelled. It is very difficult for us to help your child locate lost articles in case they are not labelled.
Please do not expect the school staff to label your child‟s shoes / floaters or other belongings.

Behaviour and Ethics:


1. Show consideration and respect to fellow students and all adults in the school premises and on the school bus.
2. Respect school property and the property of others.
3. Conduct themselves in a responsible, orderly and safe manner.
4. Attend school each day.
5. Be on time for all the classes and be prepared for work with all the required materials, homework
assignments and a strong desire to learn.

Our staff is aware of the fact and accepts that the child is the centre of all our considerations. Inappropriate
behaviour is generally handled by discussing and having the child determine the consequences, and developing
a plan of how to behave in the future. Parents are usually called to communicate about what has occurred or to
guide students as to what they need to do in the future.

We don‟t believe in children being sent out of the class, but in the event that a student continues to make poor
choices or causes a severe disruption to the learning environment, there may be a need for extended time out of

20
the classroom. It is essential that parents and school staff, work together to help students overcome obstacles
that may be hindering their success.

Things not to be carried to School:


1. IPods, Mobiles, Walkman, MP3, Video games / Game boy, and the likes
2. Trade cards, CDs, CD players, Pen Drives
3. Expensive and fancy watches
4. Expensive jewellery (gold or diamond jewellery)
5. Magazines, comics and books not relevant to the work done in the school
6. Cash
7. Chewing gum, candies and similar items that are high in calories and sugar
8. Fancy stationery or pencil boxes
9. Toys
If children are found carrying any of the above mentioned items, then it will be confiscated by the
school. Parents will be called to collect the confiscated item. School will not be held responsible if any
of the above items brought by the child to the school is lost or damaged.

Please be aware of the following:


 The school will not be held responsible for any belonging of the child that is damaged, stolen or missing.
 Under no circumstances should students buy, sell or trade cards, toys or video cartridges etc. in school or in
the school transport.
 Any toys, cards etc. that are brought to school will be confiscated. They will be returned either at the end of
the school day or given to the parent.
We appreciate parents‟ support as we work to create a positive learning environment free of distractions.

14. DISCIPLINE POLICY

All the students are held responsible for their own behaviour. When a student needs to be disciplined, then
along with counseling the following options may be used:
1. Notes in the Almanac.
2. Parents of students who indulge in misbehaviour will be called to school to discuss the problem.
3. In spite of the above, if there is still no improvement in the behaviour of the student, there will be a loss
of school privileges, like field trips, bus transport, art, games and music periods; these periods will be used
for completion of work or community service.
4. Issue of yellow cards (3) – to be exhausted first.
5. Issue of a red card (suspension for 1 week), after all 3 yellow cards have been exhausted.

We have introduced a system of issuing yellow cards for students found to indulge in any of the following
behaviour:
 Use of abusive language
 Damaging school property, scribbling on desks, walls, library books etc.
 Any act causing injury to fellow students
 Failure to submit homework , assignments , projects etc. frequently
 Indiscipline
 Showing disrespect / deliberate insubordination to elders including the helping staff
 Threatening others
 Aggressive behaviour
21
The above list provides examples of offences. The offences are not limited to the ones in the list; therefore,
teachers are not constrained because an item did not find a mention on the list.
A student who shows an unwillingness to follow the rules and regulations of the school may be suspended
from the school upon repeated offences.
Although the disciplinary action will graduate from notes to parents, to three yellow cards and then the
red card, the severity of a case might compel the school management to directly issue a yellow or red
card. The school management’s decision will be final.

Damage/lose to the school property:


Payment will be done by the children responsible for any damage or breakage of school property. An amount
(as decided by the school) will be collected as fine. Parents will get a note in the school Almanac in this regard.

Admission cancellation:
The following reasons can lead to cancellation of admission:
 Absenteeism without prior permission or intimation to school authorities beyond one month.
 Less than 80% attendance in the year.
 Non-payment of fees beyond one month after the due date.
 Incomplete payment of fees at the time of admission or failure to pay the full fees.
 Non submission of necessary documents within the specified time or submission of fake documents.
 Violation of school rules and policies clearly elaborated in the Parents‟ Handbook.

15. STUDENTS‟ RESOURCES AND SERVICES


Textbooks and other School Materials:
Sanskriti School students have access to many textbooks, library books and other resource materials. Children
are responsible for the care of these books. If books are lost or excessively damaged, then a fee will be charged
based on the age, price of the book and its availability. Books, library materials and other teaching / learning
resources are expensive to replace; hence parents are requested to help their child learn to take responsibility for
care of all items. The school‟s decision regarding the compensatory cost for the same is final.

Technology and Internet Access:


Computers are a wonderful resource and tool in the classroom. Students have an access to computers in our
computer lab. The use of this learning tool is a privilege that brings with it both rules and responsibilities. The
rules to be followed by the staff and students in the computer lab are as follows:
1) Remove your shoes before entering the computer lab.
2) Keep your hands clean and dry before touching the machine.
3) Keep your posture erect and straight while working on the machine.
4) Each time you shut down the machine, follow shutdown procedure carefully.
5) Handle keyboard and mouse with utmost care.
6) Keep the computer lab neat and clean.
7) Report any defect observed immediately to the IT teacher.
8) Before leaving the lab, arrange the stools / chairs in the lab properly.
9) Please do not touch any wires and cables or shift the monitor, CPU, or any other accessories on your
own.
10) No one is allowed to carry water bottles or any eatables to the computer lab.

22
16. HEALTH SERVICES

The school has a Sick Bay / Infirmary with a full time trained nurse to administer basic first aid. For minor
ailments like stomach ache, fever etc, our nurse calls and confirms with the parents first and then
administers only those medicines to the children, which have been suggested by our parents who are
Pediatricians, and are considered safe for consumption.

The school has a tie up with Ruby Hall Clinic, Wanoworie, Pune to administer first aid and assist in the case of
an emergency or sudden illness. Students should not hesitate to talk with their teachers if they are ill or need
other medical attention. The school will determine if a child is too ill to remain in school and will contact the
parent / guardian accordingly.
In case of an emergency, the child will be rushed to Ruby Hall Clinic, Wanoworie, duly accompanied by our
staff. Parents will be informed about the emergency immediately. The parents must then hasten to the hospital,
to take charge of their child. All Hospital charges, registration charge and any other charge, will have to be
borne by the parents whenever child is taken to the hospital by school nurse.

We understand the constraints of working parents who find it difficult to tend to sick children. Parents
are requested not to do not send a sick child to school; this leads to logistic problems for us as well as the
parents. There is also a possibility that the infection may spread to other children too.

MEDICATION POLICY:

All medications, including non-prescription drugs to be given to the child in school, must be prescribed by a
doctor. A written order for prescription and non-prescription medications should include:
 Student‟s name
 Diagnosis
 Dosage of administration
 Time of administration
 For medications not given regularly, conditions under which medication should be given
 Doctor‟s name, stamp and signature
 Intended effect of medicine
 Side effects
 Other medications being taken

Medication orders must be renewed annually or when there is a change in medication or dosage. The following
regulations must be met:
1. Parent must deliver medicine directly to the school office. If this is not possible, then please hand it over to
a staff member travelling in your child‟s transport along with clear written instructions. Please do not send
medicine to school with your child.
2. A written request from parents to administer medicine. The doctor‟s prescription must also be attached.
3. Medication must be in an original prescription bottle with the druggist label and directions affixed to the
bottle.
4. Parent must report any change of time or dosage of medicine.
5. The school nurse will keep the medicine in a locked drawer. Unused medication will be destroyed at the
conclusion of the treatment if the parent does not come to the school to collect the medicine.
6. Self-medication, like inhalers, by the children is not permitted, unless we have written documentation from
a doctor.

23
7. School personnel will not dispense prescribed medications to pupils, unless the written direction of the
attending physician of the pupil is handed over to them.
These regulations also apply to over-the-counter medications, such as Paracetamol, cough drops and various
medicines for cold.

IT IS THE PARENTS‟ DUTY TO INFORM THE SCHOOL ADMIN OFFICE, SCHOOL NURSE,
CLASS COORDINATOR AND CLASS TEACHER ABOUT ANY ALLERGY THAT THEIR YOUR
CHILD MAY HAVE TO ANY MEDICINE. THE PRECAUTIONS AND MEDICATION FOR THE
SAME SHOULD BE HANDED OVER TO THE SCHOOL WITH CLEAR GUIDELINES /
INSTRUCTIONS.

17. FOOD
We have discovered that certain kinds of processed food with artificial colouring / flavour make the children
hyperactive; that there is a very close link between what children eat and how they behave. As a policy, we
don‟t believe in children having fast food and processed food. Please ensure that your child‟s lunch-box menu is
planned keeping the following things in mind:
 Plan an interesting, nutritious and healthy menu for your child‟s lunch-box.
 We would like you to pack a traditional Indian meal on all days, except on Wednesdays, when children may
can bring food of their choice.
 Please give them daily a plastic fork or spoon, as required, along with a neatly washed tablemat and napkin.
 Each child needs to bring a fruit along with him / her daily.
 All students should have a nutritious breakfast every day.
 Please send only vegetarian food in your child‟s tiffin. Non-vegetarian food, chocolates, candies, wafers or
soft-drinks must not be packed for consumption in school.
 Students are not allowed to eat or drink in the moving bus.

In case your child is fussy about eating or tends to eat very slowly, then do bring it to the notice of the teacher.
We can only coax the child and not force him / her to eat.

IT IS THE PARENTS‟ DUTY TO INFORM THE SCHOOL ADMIN OFFICE, SCHOOL NURSE,
CLASS COORDINATOR AND CLASS TEACHER ABOUT ANY FOOD ALLERGY THAT THEIR
YOUR CHILD MAY HAVE. THE PRECAUTIONS AND MEDICATION FOR THE SAME SHOULD
BE HANDED OVER TO THE SCHOOL WITH CLEAR GUIDELINES / INSTRUCTIONS.

An Apron is issued to children from Classes Nursery to II. It is to be worn by the students during the
lunch break.

18. BIRTHDAYS

We realize that birthdays are important occasions for families, especially children. Please do keep the school‟s
policy in mind regarding birthdays:
 The birthday boy / girl can come to school in a dress of his/her choice.
A note of caution for parents of teenagers – we know that they love to experiment or make fashion
statements; maybe you can help them out on such occasions to choose a smart and decent attire.
A note of caution to young enthusiastic parents, to not send children in attire which is unsuitable for their
age, weather and school decorum.
 Parents should ensure that children wear no jewellery or make-up to school. The school is not responsible
for loss of any valuable articles.

24
 Parents should refrain from sending expensive gifts, chocolates, candies, juices or any other gifts for
teachers or other children in the class / bus on their child‟s birthday.
 In case, you want to make your child‟s birthday truly memorable, then you‟re welcome to gift a book,
educational toy or CD to the school that all the children can share together.
 No return gifts are allowed in school.
 The children will not be permitted to distribute birthday invitations to a select few children in the class. The
teacher will help the child to give invitations, only if all the children in the class are invited.

19. GIFTS FOR TEACHERS

As a policy, teachers will not be accepting any gifts in cash or kind from students or parents within the school
premises or outside the school. The best / most treasured token of appreciation that teachers expect, is the
child‟s joy, well-being and progress.
Encourage your child to make a handmade card or write a few lines or draw a picture for the teachers. That will
surely make the teacher‟s day. Students / Parents of students passing out from school are welcome to contribute
to the large collection of dolls, books, toys, artifacts or educational resource material.

20. EMERGENCIES

Safety Plans
Our school has developed safety plans with specific action steps to be taken in response to a variety of
emergency situations. The safety of our students being our prime concern, the school has been equipped with
lightning conductors, a double water filtration plant and fire safety equipment.
Summarized below is our response to such emergencies. They include, but are not limited to:

 Emergency closing of school: The closing procedure is typically used for inclement weather and other
related emergencies. In most situations the nature of the closing would be explained. In case of civil unrest
and any such emergency, parents will be notified by the school authorities through email / SMS / telephone
call, to fetch their children from the school.

 During the event of any holiday due to unforeseen circumstances parents will be informed through email
/ SMS / telephone call. Information about the same may also be put up on the school website. In case
an SMS / email remains undelivered to a parent, then the cause of it will be technical, and not
negligence on school‟s part.

 Early Departure from school: Since we understand that many parents are working, we would make every
attempt to contact you by phone if this happens. PARENTS ARE REQUESTED TO PLEASE MAKE
SURE THAT WE HAVE THEIR YOUR UPDATED PHONE NUMBERS AND EMERGENCY
CONTACT INFORMATION IN OUR RECORDS. We usually collect this information at the beginning
of the session. If it changes during the year, then please let us know about the change immediately.

21. LOST AND FOUND

There is will be a lost and found box in school for unclaimed articles. Students should enquire in the classroom
first to seek lost articles or to add any lost items that they may have found. We encourage parents to mark

25
student‟s personal belongings for easy identification. School is not to be held responsible for any item lost by
your child in the school / bus, in spite of it being labeled.

22. PARKING

Whenever you visit the school building during the day for a meeting or special event, then please park in the
parking area. The front drive of the building must be kept clear for buses, deliveries and emergencies. It is
especially important at the beginning and end of the school day, so that buses are able to get in and out without
being blocked by parked cars.

23. VISITORS

Anyone who is not a student or a parent of a student of Sanskriti School, or any adult not employed by the
Sanskriti School is considered as a visitor. All the visitors will be given a Visitor‟s Identity Card to wear for the
duration that they are in the school premises.
They must report to the school office before going to any other part of the school building. Students must not
invite drop-in visitors (friends on vacation, neighbouring school students, etc). Our students‟ safety comes first;
therefore, the presence of unauthorized persons in the school campus during school hours, before and after
school is prohibited.
In case the parents come to school without a prior appointment, then we can‟t assure them a meeting
with the teachers Head Mistress. We‟re sure that the parents will understand, respect and accept the fact that
the teachers might have other scheduled appointments or commitments on a normal working day. Parents of
our students must ensure that they wear the Parent Identity Cards issued to them, before they enter the
school gate.

24. TELEPHONE USE

Students may use the school phone to contact their parents for absolutely important reasons, like, if they have
forgotten some essentials for performing well in school, need to remind parents of an after-school activity or
have questions about where he / she is supposed to go after school. They can do so, with prior permission from
the school office. Each student who uses the school telephone for such purposes needs to pay a token amount of
Rs.5/-

Children are not allowed to bring mobile phones to school. Parents must ensure this. In case a mobile phone
is found with a child, then it will be kept in the school office and handed back only to the parents.

25. TRANSPORTATION

The behaviour of students on school buses of Sanskriti School is a matter of major concern, since, the health
and welfare of the students is jeopardized when behaviour is not appropriate. Students, parents, administrators
and our transportation staff must work together to ensure that all the students arrive to and leave from school
safely.
Children will not be allowed to eat or drink on a moving bus.
Request for change of transport route due to relocation can only be entertained if there are seats available in
buses plying on that particular route. Please note that the charges for a change in the transport route are Rs.
500/-.
26
The format of Application for change of Bus route is provided at the end of this Handbook. Parents may take a
printout of it and use it for the purpose
All the children must travel in the school bus, unless prior permission has been given for a special case. Review
of permission granted to a student will be done every year.
Students must reach their designated Bus Stop, 5 minutes earlier than their scheduled pick-up time.
All the children must reach school 15 minutes before the first bell – 7:45 am (I-VII)
9.00 am for Pre Primary
In case the language or conduct of any child is not appropriate in the bus, then the school reserves the right of
asking the parent to use the private transport to commute to and from school.
Please note that parents are not allowed to board / enter the school bus. Any complaints related to transport,
bus staff or children’s behaviour in the bus, should be brought to the notice of the school authorities.

Route Change:
The children‟s welfare is our concern.
Routes will not be changed according to the convenience of some children / parents. In case of route change, the
parents can give an application to change their child‟s transport route mid-session, then the school may not be
able to help you, as transport routes are planned prior to commencement of the new session and lack of seats
may lead to your request being turned down.
Students are expected to be picked up and dropped off at their regular stops each day.
It will not be possible for the school to entertain requests of different pick up or drop off stops, or travel by a
different bus on a particular day(s). All our buses are running at full capacity; hence it will not be possible for us
to accommodate any more children on another bus on a particular day. Also, chances of human error increase
when such changes are made.
The School takes adequate safety measures and precautions during transit. The School or its Management shall
not be held liable for any injury, accident or damage.

Safety Procedures:

Children must not eat in the bus.


When boarding or exiting the bus, students should practice the following safety procedures:
 Wait for the bus in an orderly fashion, off the road and away from the bus. Wait at your They should wait at

Bus drivers are encouraged to take steps that will reduce behaviour problems in the bus before they occur.
The driver, lady attendant and teachers have the right to assign seats to the students on the bus.

26. PETS

For humane and sanitary reasons, animals and other pets must not be brought to school. The school horses are
trained horses and have been properly vaccinated. They pose no threat to the students, as long as the students
follow the instructions of the teacher and the Horse-Riding Instructor. It is mandatory for the parents to fill
an Indemnity Bond, before their child starts attending Horse riding classes.

27. SCHOOL CALENDAR / PLANNER

A School Planner (Annual Calendar / Planner) which gives details about all school events and holidays is will
be provided only on the mobile App, PT Connect, from in the beginning of the session.

The school will inform the parents you via circular / phone only when there are changes in the schedule /
calendar. No reminders will be sent for events that are already mentioned in the Planner. Hence, please refer to
it regularly.
The Planner will be posted / available on the school website also.

28. SCHOOL LIBRARY

We have a well equipped school library, with books appropriate for all age groups in different categories.
Students have a weekly Library period to explore the books.
Books from the library are being issued to children to take home. Kindly keep the following rules in mind:
 The issued book is to be returned within 7 days. An additional week will be given to the student to
return the book, only in case he/she hasn‟t read the book. The book is to be brought to the Library for
reissue.

28
 If a child is absent on the day when he/she has a library period, then the issued book can be returned on
the NEXT working day after the due date with fine.

with Late Fee charges and Rs 200/- penalty from the student.
 A fine of Rs 10/- will have to be paid on misplacement of the Library Card. A new Library Card will

second term (Feb.), as the Library is closed for stock taking at these times.
 The books will not be issued to the children for the period of vacation.

29. PARENT INVOLVEMENT

We believe that parents and school staff share the responsibility of the education of children. Research shows
that there is a direct link between a parent‟s involvement and his / her child‟s success at school. We believe that
parents and school should:
 Work together to promote learning activities at home.
 Share information about the child.
 Collaborate on school activities.

Criticizing the school, its policies or the teachers in the child‟s presence, will have detrimental effects on
your child‟s mind and will affect his / her growth or progress. Kindly refrain from such behaviour.

Sanskriti School offers parents a wide range of opportunities to become involved with it:
1. Parents are provided with up-to-date information about our school‟s activities, programmes through
circulars and Newsletters from time to time.
2. Formal Parent-Teacher Meetings are scheduled and the dates for the same are intimated to the parents at the
commencement of each academic year through the Annual Calendar. Informal meetings can be scheduled
at any time with prior appointment.
The soft copy of the Report Card will be provided using the mobile App, PT Connect. The school will
provide the hard copy of the report card of the ongoing session/term only at the time of withdrawal Parents
who require the hard copy of the report card can obtain the same from the Admin Office, after sending a
written application at least one week in advance.
3. For Classes V-VIII: During the PTM, along with the feedback from the teachers, the Unit Test Papers/ Mid-
term Papers will be made available for parents‟ perusal. This facility will be provided only on the day of the
PTM and cannot be availed on any other day for whatsoever reason.
As responsible and enlightened parents, we expect all the parents to respect the school rules and abide by
them.

29
Parent Volunteer Programme:
We have a volunteer programme, wherein the parents and special friends can volunteer to assist in school. We
would like to encourage parents and other citizens from the community to assist the teachers and other school
personnel in helping children reach their potential. Interested volunteers should call the school office. All the
volunteers to our school must sign in at the office before going to any other part of the building and must wear
the School Identity Card for the duration of time spent in the school premises.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

We have bigger houses,


but smaller families;
more conveniences,
but less time.

We have more knowledge,


but less judgement;
more experts,
but more problems;
more medicines,
but less health.

We have been all the way


to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street
to meet the new neighbour.

We build more computers


to hold more information,
to produce more copies than ever,
but have less communication.

We have become long on quantity,


but short on quality.

These are times of fast foods,


but slow digestion;
tall men,
but short character;
steep profits,
but shallow relationships.

It is a time
when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.

-The Dalai Lama

Maybe we all need to introspect and strive to make our world a better place.
