School Timings Change – Proposal & Survey

Dear Parents,

We are considering changing the timings of the school for all three programs from June 2017. To know what is being proposed and why, as well as to understand what all the considered options were, please read through this document.

Overall, we believe that this move is beneficial for the student community as a whole without compromising on the school philosophy in any way. You will also have to chance to put across your concerns through a google form as well as an open session on this issue – the details of both you will be able to see only if you go through the document fully.

Important Announcement (Sunday Working – 16th April)

Dear Parents,
Due to the Honorable Prime Minister’s visit on the coming Sunday & Monday to Surat, the District Education Office has requisitioned all Fountainhead School buses from Sunday  (16th April 2017) evening to Monday (17th April 2017) till about 01:00 p.m. In addition, many roads, including the stretch from Athwa Gate to the airport is likely to be blocked on Monday morning. This means that we won’t be able to work on Monday and it will be a holiday.
Fountainhead will instead work on Sunday, April 16th instead of 17th April in the following manner:
PYP Students: 7:30 to 2:00 as usual with D2 timetable except Grade 2 (which has SLC)
EY students: 10:10 to 3:30 as usual with D2 timetable
Senior School students (G7-12): as per the exam schedule on Monday (same timings to be followed)
Grade 2 parents & students: SLC from 7:30 to 3:30 (the same slots booked for Monday will hold true for Sunday).
In short, whatever was going to happen on Monday will happen on Sunday.
