Dear Parent,
After our initial introductory class on Microsoft Teams on June 30 where the proposed schedule of classes was announced, many parents contacted the School expressing their concern about the increased hours of screen time for their children.
The school authorities and teachers had arrived at that particular schedule for classes after a few parents expressed their dissatisfaction about the classes that were uploaded on SnapHomework. They felt it was inadequate and wanted live online classes for the duration of the school day (from 8 am to 2 pm).
Presently we have been overwhelmed by the numerous responses from parents who have expressed their extreme satisfaction of the earlier system which was adopted by the
school through April and May 2020. They are concerned about the increased screen time that children will have to undergo in the new system.
We have therefore decided to tweak the system to be of optimum benefit to the students and parents. Through this, we have enhanced what was done in the past as well as reduce screen time. Those who have more than one child in school will benefit from this system. We also are aware of the fact that while it will benefit most of the school community, some parents and students may still be inconvenienced. These present times will have its fare share of inconveniences. It will be impossible to solve everyone's problems. We hope that you will cooperate with us.

A brief explanation of the schedule that will be followed from July 7 is given below:
1. Specially recorded classes will be prepared by teachers and uploaded on SnapHomework the previous evening (also on the School website later). Students will be expected to go through these and follow the instructions provided by the teacher.
2. On the following day, a live online interactive class will be conducted for each of the subjects whose videos were uploaded the previous evening.
3. Classes 1, 2 and 3 will have 2 videos uploaded per evening. Their classes will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. with breaks as per the timetable.
4. Class 4 and 5 will have 2 to 3 videos uploaded per evening. Their classes will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. with breaks as per the timetable.
5. Classes 6 to 10 will have 3 videos uploaded per evening. Their classes will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. with breaks as per the timetable.

Carver Sir and the members of the Management wish each of you the very best. We hope that our students will take these classes seriously so that their academic progress is not hampered in any way during the lockdown. Our sincere hope is that we soon see the end of this Pandemic and will be able to bring our children back to school.

Mr. Louis Lopez
