DBA/Cir. No:3/ 2017-18                                                                                                                                                                           DATE: 20.09.2017

Dear Parents/Guardian,

URGENT 

 The safety and security of children in our school from the time they enter the school campus till they leave the campus at dismissal is our prime concern and importance. Therefore we request you to carefully read the following and comply with our requests.  

I.            Transportation: We have recently had a meeting with the D.M., the S.S.P as well as the  D.S.P Patna and other officers of the Patna District Administration on 14.9.2017 in connection with safety measures to be taken regarding our students as well as  the mode of transportation of students from their homes to the school and back.  You must remember that this is a precautionary measure taken by the Patna District Administration for the security and safety of your children. There are certain requirements that have to be fulfilled by you, parents/guardians in this connection:-

 i.             You are requested to provide the school the details of the transport used by your ward/s as mentioned in the Performa attached. 

ii.           Furthermore we request you parents/guardians to give an authorization letter to the school permitting your children to come to school using cycles or on foot. 

iii.          Private Vehicles/Auto-Rickshaws :-  Many of you have made arrangements  for your wards to commute to school and back in private buses, vans and auto-rickshaws, etc., We have been observing that these modes of conveyance, especially auto-rickshaws are overloading their vehicles which are a danger in itself.  

iv.          These transporters do not stop their vehicles close to the School gate either to drop the children or to pick them up after the dismissal but they park their vehicles far away from the school compelling the children to walk on the road  from their vehicle to the school and back to their vehicles after dismissal. It would be advisable for the transport drivers to line up their children and lead them to the gate of the school. The same method should be followed at dismissal. Please instruct the concerned Transporters that the students have to be on time for the Morning Assembly every day.  

v.           These transporters are not punctual and prompt  in picking the children up from school after dismissal.Some of these vehicles ply one or more trips and hence some of the students do not stay in the campus to wait for the second or third trip but they leave the campus and loiter on the roadside.  This is not desirable as it leads to discipline problems, security and safety risks and hindrance to other vehicles plying on the road or to accidents as well.  

Parents are requested, time and again, by the school authorities, as per letter Ref: 2277 dated 05/04/13 from SSP Patna regarding safety of children, which has not been  taken seriously so far, hence please coordinate with your transporters to ensure that your children are on their way home not later than 15 minutes after dismissal, and advise, or request your children to wait in the campus till their conveyance arrives. 

vi.          We request you parents to give us the names of your ward/s who return home using the second or third trip so that we can keep your  children in the campus till their transport/conveyance arrives. 

II.         Identity Cards : All children  have identity cards which they must wear at all times to and from school. 

In addition from now, it is mandatory for Parents/Guardians, to submit one family photograph (size: Passport - i.e.: Father+Mother+Ward) to the school in order to issue you an Identity Card.  This will enable you easy access to enter the school premises to meet your ward, visit the office or pay his/her fees or to meet the principal or teacher in connection with your wards.

 III.    The Entry and Exit Register: This Register is available with the guard at the main gate.  Visitors/Parents must fill in the requirement in the Register before they enter the campus of the school and even when leaving the campus.  This has been made compulsory for the safety and security of the children in the school.

 IV. All bus/van/auto drivers  must have identity cards and /or authorization letters  from parents/guardians to pick up children from the school campus.  They should come into the campus showing the I.Cards at the gate and then line up the students showing their authorization cards and then take their students to the vans, autos, bus etc. trip wise.

 V.    Teachers on duty: Parents /Guardians, please note that our teachers are on duty every morning before classes commence. Teachers are deputed in front of the main gate to help students enter the school and cross the road carefully.  The same procedure is followed during dismissal and they move around the campus, to observe, watch and take care of all the children waiting for their respective conveyance or transport.The teachers on duty remain here till all the children have left the campus.

 All parents/guardians are requested to familiarize themselves with the safety rules as well as student/teacher/parent responsibilities as given in the school diary pages 26 to 30.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

              We thank Almighty God for our achievement this year and for the many blessings he has bestowed upon us.  We thank you parents/guardians for your encouragement and co-operations.  It has been a year full of activities inter-school and intra-School.  We acknowledge and appreciate the efforts and interest taken by our teachers and students.  Many of our students have achieved success in academics as well as in various school competitions at state and national levels. It has been a year  of trails, success, achievement   and fulfillment for all of us at Don Bosco Academy.

 1. Unit Tests: The second Unit Tests have already commenced from the 12th December-2015 and the result will be declared on the following parent teacher meeting day.

2. Unit Test Results Date: 09/01/2016 :

Classes: 4, 6 & 8      - timing from 8.00 am to 10.00 a.m.

 3. Pre-Board Examination for Std.X & XII. The Pre-board examination for Std. X & XII have already commenced from the 9th December 2015 till the 21st December 2015.

 4. Winter Holidays: The winter holidays will commence from 23rd December 2015 and the school will reopen on the 4th January 2015.  The winter timings will continue but subject to weather conditions. The school office and fee counter will remain closed during this period. School fees and bus dues must be cleared by 21.12.2015.

 5. Punctuality : Many students especially those who commute to school by bicycles, Private vans, auto-rickshaws, cycles, rickshaws arranged by you parents and on foot-make it a practice of coming late every morning after the commencement of the morning assembly.  Therefore parents/guardians, kindly take necessary steps to ensure that your ward/s  reach  school in time for the morning assembly or such student/s will be sent back home.        Further more to prevent students from wandering and wasting their time on the road after dismissal, insist that the conveyances arranged by you come exactly on time to take them back home from school campus.  Parents please instruct your ward/s  to be  inside the school campus till their vehicle come to pick them up.

 6. Uniform: You are once again reminded to send your ward/s   to school in the correct prescribed winter uniform.  A small number of boys and girls regularly (seems to modify) ignore the regulations with regard to correct attire /appearance at school.  The uniform must be worn respectfully at all times and parents are requested to cooperate and assist the school and enable their children to adhere to the uniform regulations.

Shoes: The only shoes that should be worn with our uniforms are black leather lace-up shoes not Jazz-style shoes.

Hair Styles:  Hair in terms must be clean and neatly styled according to the school regulations.

 7. Christmas: The Joyous season of Christmas has caught up with us once more to commemorate the Birth of Jesus Christ which took place more than two thousand years ago. The significance of Christmas cannot end with mere external celebrations. Christmas will be truly meaningful  and relevant if we can spread the message that  Jesus gave us during His Ministry, that is , to love one another, especially the poor the sick, the needy and the down trodden.

May this Joy and Peace of Christmas remain with you and your families throughout the year!
