No chrome-book at home on Thursdays

No chrome-book at home on Thursdays

Dear parents,

As you are aware, we are following ‘no screen day’ on every Monday. Along with the ‘no screen day’ students will also follow ‘no chrome-book at home’ on Thursdays.

Hence, on Thursdays, teachers will post/send the homework that does not require chrome book and the students will leave their chrome-books in the school. The rationale behind this is to limit the screen time.
