Dear Parents,
Welcome to the Academic Year 2020-21. Thank you for attending the Orientation Meeting on
Zoom. We are eagerly waiting for the students to join the classes from tomorrow, Sunday 16

Please find below the assistance that is required from the parents to make the Distance Learning
effective for our students.

    thoroughly. Please check Classtune everyday for the update of daily Online Class

    he/she attends every class in school uniform.

    teacher to admit them on time.

    This pandemic has changed our way of life and made us realize that we are fully capable of
    adapting to the changes. It is still teaching us a bit more every day and we have no clue what
    more is there in the future. Hence, let us work together to make the most of whatever we have in
    our hands. Together we will definitely achieve, if not 100% but as much possible closer to that.
    Once again, your active cooperation at every step is highly appreciated.
    Stay safe everyone!
