Shoes, Socks & bags:

Students can wear shoes, sock of any colour or brand. Students of ALL grades can bring their own bags. Those shoes, socks and bags with any graphics such as cartoon prints, characters or symbols from TV, movies or books or shoes with light or sound ARE NOT ALLOWED. For Early Years students, only velcro shoes are allowed.

  1. I-Card / Parent Card:

Each parent will be given one I-card and two Parent Pass. The I-card/ Parent pass can be collected from the school from 6th May 2019 onwards. Please call the front desk before coming to collect the I-cards.

I-cards:

It is compulsory for all students to wear the I-card till June 30th after which the I-card must be kept in the bag at all times. Any student not wearing the I-card will not be allowed to board the bus. The  I-Card is also required for issuing books from the library.

Parent id card:

We will be issuing 2 parent RFID cards (RFID – Radio Frequency Identification) to each parent for the next academic session. The Parent RFID Card will be used for the following purposes:

  1. Picking up the student from the bus stop during the drop off route.
  2. Picking up the student, while he/she is returning from nature camp, field trips, etc.
  3. Picking up the student directly from the school (any person coming to pick the student has to bring the Parent RFID Card)
  4. Parents visiting the school even if they do not wish to pick their child.

This card will be registered in the school records in your child’s name and will be non-transferable. In case the parent pass is not shown, even if you are a parent, the student will not be handed over to you. The same applies when you come to pick the child from school. In case of any error or changes required in the I-card / Parent pass, please report to the Front Desk for rectification. This could take up to 5 working days.

  1. Transportation:

Detailed information regarding the stop preferred by you for pick up and drop off timings will be available from 15th May 2019 onwards on the school website.

You can log on to the given link http://www.fountainheadschools.org/helpdesk/transport-routes/ to view stop and timings.  During the first few days of school, transport schedule and routes can be a little off track as students are still adjusting to the new schedules. Further, because of rains from June to August, there may be a delay in timings. Therefore, we hope for full cooperation from you during this period, till the schedule is settled.

  1. Chromebook: Information Technology (IT) has become an integral part of our lives in a short while. Today most adults and students have access to multiple internet enabled devices at home or at their workplaces. Technology has also become an essential part of education here at Fountainhead School. Therefore, we have started with a 1:1 computing device program from Grade 5 onwards. Every student of Grade 5 and above is expected to purchase a Google Chromebook from the next academic session. For more details please refer to the given link http://www.fountainheadschools.org/tech-fs/chromebook/.

Details regarding the purchase of chromebook will be shared to your parent email id (email id created by school).

We will focus on basic requirements for Economics and GDC (graphic display calculator) training especially for Math and other subjects.

Please note that the students will have to carry their Chromebook (they need to order immediately), GDC (can be ordered from school now itself). Venue: Room No. 127 (block 1, 2nd Floor)

We would like to emphasize on punctuality for all meetings at school. The school gates will close 5 minutes prior to the meeting timings. If you are late you will be requested to leave. No arguments/requests will be entertained. So kindly abide by the rules and be on time.

As Fountainhead School follows a progressive teaching methodology without dependence on texts and study guides, a sustained and consistent attendance is very important for each and every student.

  1. Graphic Display Calculator (GDC) for grades  11 & 12 only:

As far as Mathematics curriculum is concerned, graphic calculators will reinforce student’s understanding by actually visualizing graphs and other diagrammatic representations through the medium of graphics. Hence we are well in a position to assess, comprehend and analyse the Math concepts and most importantly IB board support the usage of graphic calculators extensively. This also helps students to explore complex mathematical problems.  Students are required to use GDC during DP final examination, hence it is compulsory for all the students to learn the usage of GDC. DP students (grade 11 & 12), need to buy GDC from school. Kindly go through the details and let us know which GDC would you prefer to buy for your child:

The Present price at which the CASIO GDC offered are as below :

(1)FX-CG50 Rs. 10,250/- each

(2)Fx-9860GII Rs. 6,000/- each

The above price includes GST and Courier charges with Three years warranty.

  1. Things to carry on the first day of school:
Early Years (Nursery, Jr. KG & Sr. KG)I-card, School bag, water bottle, lunch box, an extra pair of clothes
Primary (Grade 1 – 6), Middle Years (Grade 7 – 10) & Senior Years (Grade 11 & 12)Icard, Bag, water bottle, lunch box, stationery box

Stationery and books will be handed over to the student on the first day of the school.

It is mandatory to label your child’s Bag, shoes, uniform, clothes, lunch boxes, water bottles etc. If they are misplaced/ lost (and students do lose a lot of their belongings), it becomes difficult to trace the items if they are not labelled. Loss of uniform (shorts, t-shirts and shoes) will not be accepted as a reason for not wearing the complete uniform.

  1. Parent / Student email id: Since all the communication done from the school will be through email and the daily diary (online diary), the school will create a new email id for all new parents and students. This email id and password have already been sent to your personal email id (any one of the parent). Henceforward all the communication will be done through this email id.
