Precautions being taken presently in the school campus: 

Whenever any staff visits the school campus for any work, we take the following preventive measures:

1. Sanitization of Campus:
Our school campus goes through a regular and rigorous sanitization process to disinfect any surface that can be potentially harmful. We ensure that whenever a staff member visits the school we sanitize the area the concerned person has to use. 

2. Physical  Distancing:
All the norms necessary to follow the physical/social distancing protocols are in place so that close contact with others can be avoided. There may be no physical interaction between anyone, thus reducing the chances of spreading the virus.

3. Regular Temperature Checks: 
At the school gate, all staff and visitors are checked for high-temperatures and checked for other symptoms to increase the possible COVID-19 infection detection.

5. Use of Mask and other Face Coverings
Mandatory use of face masks or any other face coverings is applicable for everyone entering the school campus.

6. Use of Hand sanitizer at the school gate 
Everyone entering the school on the campus is given an alcohol-based hand sanitizer for reducing the risk of spreading.
We are committed to maintaining an environment that is safe and secure for our staff and children. The pandemic has undoubtedly changed the protocols we have to live by, but not our vision to provide a safe & secure environment for our children.

Note: We will constantly review and update the above-stated information as the Covid-19 situation evolves and update this document as and when required.
