Essentials – First day of School (10th June 2019)

Dear Students,

Welcome back to school!

We are excited to begin another great school year with you.

As the new academic year is about to begin, you must all be wondering where your class will be located, who your mentor will be, what you should carry on the first day of school, and so on.

On the first day of school i.e, on Monday 10th June, you all are required to gather in Rendezvous (assembly area) where your respective section placards will be placed. Your mentors will welcome you and accompany you to explore the day filled with some exciting activities.

Students, please don’t forget to carry your charged Chromebook with you or else you may miss some interesting activities that have been planned for you.

Refer to Transport routes.

Regards,

Fountainhead School.

Important changes in Uniform policy for 2019-20

Important changes in Uniform policy for 2019-20

Dear Parents and Students,

Based on feedback from various stakeholders, we have made a few changes in the school uniform policy. You must refer to the attachment to understand the policy in detail, and the reasons for the changes along with the reference images. The key changes are mentioned briefly here:

  • Track Pants (unicolour – dark greys, navy blue or black) are allowed any time during the year. School trousers will no longer be available. However, anyone wishing to use any existing pair can do so. For Senior School students, for labs and for field trips, track pants or the old school trousers are necessary.
  • Shoes and socks of any colour are now allowed. Students of ALL grades can now 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.
  • New sports specific shorts have been introduced in the school store based on the feedback from the students and coaches.
  • For PS classes, students can dress according to the requirement of their chosen sport which meets these two requirements: (a) Other than the regular items specified above, students can wear those jerseys or bottoms that have been made for a school-specific tournament (for e.g. inter-school football, basketball team, school Ultimate Frisbee teams, district or state teams). (b) These cannot be worn during PE or any other class. It is the student’s responsibility to change to school uniform after the PS classes.

CHROMEBOOK PROGRAM FOR GRADE 5 ONWARDS

CHROMEBOOK PROGRAM FOR GRADE 5 ONWARDS

Dear Parents,

As discussed during the session on ‘BYOC – Bring Your Own Chromebook,’ we are sharing a link of the presentation and the details in regard to purchase of the Chromebook.

As parents, we are sure you have a lot of questions and concerns. To address the same, we’ve added a dedicated section on our website: Tech @ FS (http://www.fountainheadschools.org/purpose-and-decision-steps/chromebook/)

This section on the website covers the following:

  • What’s the experience like? What’s the world doing?
  • Why Chromebook?
  • Usage agreements at home & school so that the device is used effectively and not for the wrong reasons
  • What are the potential safety concerns and how we intend to address this?

NEXT STEPS:

Step 1

We request that you go through the website content that we’ve already put up before taking this step. We will try to address all your unanswered concerns in these planned interactions.

Step 2

Configuration of the Chromebook:

Chromebook Brand Acer
Model No. C732
Price 28,500
Top Case Color & Decoration Grey
Onboard processor Intel Celeron Dual Core N33500
Onboard memory(RAM) 4 GB Memory
EMMC/ISSD 16GB EMMC
Screen Size 11.6″ Wide LCD Display
HDMI Port Yes
Graphics Processor Integrated Intel HD Graphics
Video Camera Web camera
Wireless Yes
Bluetooth Yes
Card Reader Yes
USB Port Yes

Warranty 3 Years including Accidental Damage Protection*


*
As per manufacturer’s terms and conditions

Chrome OS Management Console (perpetual license): This console will enable the school administration to configure and manage each Chromebook with ease, and will allow us to add security features (such as user restriction, app restriction) as well allow many value-added features such as making an app landing page, online testing etc. This console needs to be bought only once with every device at the price of ₹2832 inclusive of all taxes. This price is valid only for bulk educational purchases. Regular license cost is almost double the current price.

Step 3

Advance payment

We are asking for an advance payment by 10th May because in order to receive the Chromebooks in July, we need to place an order with the vendor by the second week of May. It takes 15-20 days to compile and send the order to the vendor and the delivery takes almost 6-8 weeks. After delivery, the school requires upto 15 days to test and configure all the Chromebooks before they are handed over to the students.

Sr. No. Details Advance Payment (to be made by May 10th) Total Cost
1 Acer + Chrome Management Console 15,000 31,332
2 Only Chrome Management Console (meaning parent will purchase the Chromebook) 2,832 2,832

Notes:

  • Kindly note that the school has no commercial interest in this transaction
  • Parents can buy a Chromebook on their own, if they wish to. In this case, the parents will only be buying the CMC from school. School will intimate them as to when to send the device for installation of the console.
  • Balance Payment to be made in June before the device is handed over to the student
  • The total cost mentioned above is currently based on the minimum quotation that we have received from Google resellers. In case, we get a lower quotation, we will apply, update and charge accordingly
  • School will be providing a debit note containing all the details of the purchase

Payment Details:

Payment mode Details
Paytm

₹ 15,000/- for Chromebook + CMC

Click here to pay

₹ 2,832/- for CMC only

Click here to pay

*Last date of payment: 10th May, 2019

**If we do not receive the payment by this date then we will consider that the parent is not interested in purchasing the Chromebook through school

Step 4

In the first week of July 2019, we will arrange the handover of Chromebook to the parents. Before the students start using  Chromebook, parents and school together can ensure that the students use their device effectively rather than it becoming a distraction. We will frame essential agreements for the same.

IT Team
