Dear Parents,

Slot 2: Early Year (Nu, Jr. Kg, Sr. Kg), G 1, 4  & 5 10:00 am to 12:00 noon

 

Please note that it is mandatory for all parents  to come to school by the school bus. Kindly refer to the bus schedule attached.  

Only the parents using school bus transport (as we have a parking constraint) will be allowed to attend the PTM. Please note that parents will not be allowed to board the buses after the railway crossing near the school and therefore will not be allowed to enter the school premises for the PTM. However, parents who wish to come on two-wheelers or cycles will be allowed as parking will not be a constraint.

  • Buses will reach school at 7:15 am and leave at 10:00 am SHARP for the first batch and for the 2nd PTM slot, buses will reach school by 9:45 am and leave at 12:30 pm  SHARP after the PTM ends.
  • Please note that the pantry coupons will be sold in school during PTM. A set of coupons costing Rs. 200 will be available, parent can buy as many sets as they wish to, through cash. Pantry coupons can also be purchased through PAYTM. http://www.fountainheadschools.org/paymentPages/index.php
  • Refer to the bus schedule (given below) for your respective stop and timing. Please do not park your vehicles right at, or near the bus stops as this creates safety and traffic constraints for the general public.
  • While we expect the buses to have sufficient capacity to carry the parents, based on the average attendance at PTMs, it might be possible that some buses may be slightly more crowded than ideal. Please cooperate with us on the same and follow all bus safety rules as directed by the staff.

Please do not call the Front Desk requesting for entry to the school by giving reasons such as missing the bus, emergency situation etc. We request you to treat all the school staff (didis, bus drivers, conductors and attendants) including the school gate security staff with courtesy at all times. Please note that inappropriate tone, language or behavior will not be tolerated.

For those people who need to travel in an emergency, such as doctors, we will have a vehicle on standby to drop you so that you can get back immediately. We hope you will understand our constraints and extend your cooperation.

The parents coming through their own transportation (only in case of emergency or medical ground) can mail their requests latest by 15th June, 2017 to surat@fountainheadschools.org . Request will be approved based on the merit of the case. An email will be sent by us stating whether the request has been accepted or not.

Please note that pantry will be open for parents and only a few selected items will be available (today’s special, veg sandwich, amul cool, lemonade, tea/coffee and buttermilk). Parents can buy these items by  cash /coupons. Also, please carry a bottle of water with you for the PTM.

Grade 11 3rd July 2017 8:30 am – 3:15 pm


Please note that there will be some changes in the school timings for Nursery and Jr. KG students for the month of June 2017
only.

Nursery: Timings for the students of Nursery for the first two working days, i.e. 8th June and 9th June will be 9:55 am to 12:00 pm. Students will come to school using the school transport, but will be going home at 12:00 noon. Parents will have to come to school to pick the students for these two days. From 10th June students will come at 9:55 am and leave at 1:45 pm

Junior Kg: Timings for Junior Kg students will be from 9:55 am to 1:45 pm for the month of June (till 30th June). 3rd July onwards timings will be 9:55 am to 3:15 pm.

 

Please note that the new bus routes and their timings have been updated on the school’s website. Kindly refer to the given link for the same. (http://www.fountainheadschools.org/helpdesk/transport-routes/)

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.

Please find below some important instruction related to the Transport Policy

  • It is compulsory for all students to avail school transport facility.
  • Routes & stops of the buses\van have been fixed for all major catchment areas of the city. Since the school wants to ensure that the time taken from the first stop to the last stop is fixed and limited, new stops / routes cannot be made for every request.
  • Request regarding change of bus stops for few days (upto 4 days) will not be accepted. In case of emergency you will have to pick-up your child from the school.
  • The bus\van will drop and pick up students at the assigned, designated pick-up / drop-off point only.
  • Since the school does not provide gate pick up or drop off facilities, the child may have to walk (and for younger children till age 10, dropped and picked-up) to and from the common convenient place in his / her residence vicinity. The pick up / drop off timings as communicated to you earlier, will be based on trial / dry runs and therefore may get affected due to traffic situation or restriction in vehicular movements. Students are expected to be at the bus stop 10 minutes before their standard bus timings, and if parents/guardians are picking up the child, then they are also requested to be at the stop 10 minutes before the expected arrival time.
  • Switching buses\vans on your own is not allowed.
  • Buses/vans will not stop along the way to pick up students who have missed the bus/van at the designated stop. However, a child who misses the bus at the previous stop may be dropped off at a further stop on the same route. You cannot board a bus of a different route e.g. if your child is coming through bus route no. 15 than s/he can only board the bus from any other stop of route no. 15.
  • Before changing your address, please make sure to identify the stop from all the existing routes and confirm with the school that a seat is available on that route. It is not feasible to create new stops / routes in the middle of the year because the address could be far from the existing routes or else even for a location falling on the route (because every new stop adds to the time taken by the vehicle and we intend to keep a maximum limit for the time taken).
  • In case you want to change the stop, it will be considered only after 30th June, 2017 and subject to the availability of seats in that particular route. If seats are not available then the request will not be accepted.
  • The school takes no guarantee of providing service in an area not covered by the given routes.
  • Request regarding change of bus stops for two/three days only will not be accepted. In case of emergency you will have to pick-up your child from the school.
  • Year on year, the routes and stops are surely going to change as there are shifts and changes in major residential addresses. Therefore, apart from adding new routes, we may also have to modify existing ones, or delete existing ones completely if that may be the need. The school will try not to disrupt an existing stop, but please note that under unavoidable circumstances, the school may have to change the stop location (e.g. Road Block due to SMC road construction/repair work, etc.)
  • Bearer card is compulsory from the first day of the school to pick up your child from the bus stop and the school even if the parents come for the pick up.

Note: Please reach the bus stop in time. The bus stop timings that have been given to you are given after taking into account an adjustment of a three minutes time variation. The bus will reach your stop at any time between the three minutes time slot for your bus stop. Please note that the bus will not wait at your bus stop for the full three minutes but will pick up the students and leave immediately. For example, if the timing for your bus stop is 7:02 to 7:05, then the bus will reach your bus stop anytime between 7:02 to 7:05 (Not wait for end time), pick up the students and leave immediately. The bus will not stop more then 30 second at your bus stop.
