Use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers (for at least 20 seconds) can be done wherever feasible. Respiratory etiquettes to be strictly followed. This involves strict practice of covering one’s mouth and nose while coughing/sneezing with a tissue/handkerchief/flexed elbow and disposing of used tissues properly.

Parent's Responsibility

Safety of children is a collective responsibility. Ensure children come to school only when they are fit. Educate & sensitise children to be aware of COVID appropriate behaviour. Send children in clean uniform to school. Be available to school when called at times of emergencies. Avoid crowding near school. Pay school fees on time. Payments to be made through online modes only.

General Safety

Parent's and students are requested to read these tips in detail.
Learn the school's emergency procedures.
Emergency plans and phone numbers are usually included in school handbooks and posted in classrooms. Taking a few extra minutes to familiarize yourself and your child with emergency information can give him the confidence he needs to act quickly in emergency situations.

Know travel routes to and from the school.
Make sure you and your child know both primary and alternate routes. In an emergency, roads can be blocked and it's important to have a backup plan.

Know and follow school security and safety measures.
These might include signing in when visiting the school, being escorted when walking through the building, or wearing a visitor pass. Following these procedures also sets a great example for your kids.

Talk with your child about safety.
Be specific. Talk about instinct and paying attention to funny feelings of fear. Explain what to do if she doesn't feel safe. Make sure she knows how to contact you or a trusted neighbor who is likely to be at home.

Inform school staff about health and emotional concerns.
Whether your child has a food allergy, a physical disability, or has been subject to bullying, make sure to keep your child's teachers and Principal in the loop.

Get involved.
Talk with the Principal about what you can do to increase school safety, such as organizing parents to form a neighborhood watch before and after school. Sometimes parent groups are highly successful in making improvements in traffic safety during drop and pick up time.
