Dear Parents,

We live in a tech-world and technology is beneficial if it is put into good use by the right people. We are regularly hearing that misuse of the gadgets is high among the children and it must be limited and strictly monitored by the parents. Social media sites like the Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, Whatsapp etc are extensively used by children also.

Scholars Indian School has strictly prohibited the bringing of mobiles and laptops by the children to the school. If for any educational reasons, the students are allowed to bring with them these gadgets, it will be in the custody of the concerned teacher till 1.45 pm. The school has a committee that monitors the students and the gadgets they bring. The Computer Department of the school has a solid policy followed and strictly to be adhered by all the students when they are in the school.

The use of social media is getting wider usage among school children when they are at home. Parental involvement is a crucial key to address the misuse. The school is not all accountable for the activities of the children when they are home. The parents are kindly informed to always keep a check on the sites your children visit, the messages the children send etc. It is strongly advised not to give your mobile sets to your children in your absence. Parents have to take the accountability of any unwarranted activities children resort to while at home.

This is mailed to the parents as we are concerned about our students even after they leave the school premises. We request the parents to be on alert all the time as children are our most precious assets.
