What are the School's Policies?

A. SCHOOL FEES 1. Statement of Account Please refer to the schedule of payment of fees for STRICT COMPLIANCE: MONTHLY FEES every 5th of the month QUARTERLY FEES October 5 December 5 March 5 SEMESTRAL FEE December 5 The school or teacher is not accountable for any loss of checks or payments in cash that have not been properly attached and duly noted in the Daily Guide by the home. Official Receipts and change will be properly stapled, noted, and given immediately. Clearance and Test Permits will be issued after all accounts have been settled. The school reserves the right to refuse admission to students who have consistently failed to settle financial obligations, not to prejudice the child but to discipline the parent or guardian. 2. Transfer and Withdrawal Any student from the Kindergarten to Grade 10 level who transfers or otherwise withdraws, in writing within two weeks after the beginning of classes and who has already paid the pertinent tuition and other school fees in full or for any length longer than one month will be fully charged for all the applicable fees for the entire school year. The same holds true for foreign students, since they have been issued a Special Study Permit covering the whole school year. The foregoing is based on the premise that a student who was officially enrolled in the school stays enrolled for the entire school year regardless of his subsequent transfer or withdrawal. 3. Quarterly Clearance and Test Permits Quarterly Clearance for the Preschool and Test Permits for all other levels include payments for accounts for other services such as tutorials, Uniforms, School Service, Canteen, and Catering Services. B. Attendance 1. Punctuality Punctual means being inside the school grounds in time to attend the flag Ceremony. Any time thereafter is considered late. Punctuality is a matter of conscience and responsibility on the part of both the student and the home. A visit to the School Office is required of every pupil who is late for the class to present the excuse slip duly filled out and signed by the parent/guardian and which must be noted and countersigned by the duly authorized person. The school reserves the right to refuse admittance to students who fail to come to school within the 15-minute grace period for that day. Habitual tardiness is subject to disciplinary action. Prompt and regular attendance in all classes and school activities is required of all pupils. Skipping or cutting classes will warrant immediate suspension the following day whereby the parent/guardian must accompany the student to the School Head’s Office on the day following the suspension for readmission. A student guilty of three counts of these offenses will be automatically dropped from the roll. 2. Absences A student should present an explanation of absence slip to the adviser after an absence from classes which must bear the signature of his/her parents, or authorized guardian. The school must be informed of the reason/s should a student be absent for a long period of time. However, a pupil with 10 consecutive absences without notice is automatically dropped from the roll. The allowed number of absences shall be 10% of the total number of class days whether excused or unexcused, and 15% may be allowed for very grave reasons only. 3. Communicable Diseases The school must be informed immediately of any type of communicable diseases so that parents of other children in class may be notified. The following information on the period of communicability will help parents determine how long the child should be kept at home:

  1. Chicken Pox - one day before appearance of rash until all scabs are gone (7 days or more after eruption).

  2. Conjunctivitis (Sore eyes) - as long as eyes are reddish.

  3. German Measles - from 7 days before to 4 days after appearance of rash.

  4. Impetigo and other skin infections - as long as lesions are active.

  5. Influenza - as per physician's advice.

  6. Lice - as long as lice are found in the student's hair.

  7. Mumps - 24 hours before glandular enlargement until swelling subsides.

  8. Typhoid Fever - for as long as typical bacili are present in the Excretia, usually after first week of convalescence.

C. Discipline 1. Behavior We believe that basic behavior, training, courtesy and respect for Parents and elders, as well as courtesy and respect for person and property of others, must originate from the home and, hence, be in practice at all times in school and everywhere else. The student will, at all times, use proper expressions for greeting and excusing oneself. Proper behavior and decorum in action and speech must be observed in and out of school premises at all times. Therefore, any student guilty of unbecoming conduct, public display of affection, misdemeanor, disturbance of peace, any form of substance abuse in public places even beyond school hours will be subject to disciplinary action, suspension, and exclusion from the enrollment in the following school year. 2. Disciplinary Action Rules and regulations contained in this handbook must be strictly observed. Should undesirable behavior persist after several warnings from the Adviser, the student may be grounded by assigning additional activities related to the subject matter on hand or curtailment of privileges such as play time. A student may be suspended by the School Head if the behavior problem persists even after consultations with parents and teachers. 3. Honesty Honesty on the part of the student must be manifested in and out of the classroom. Any student caught cheating in any manner will receive an automatic zero in the activity, quiz, or test. Likewise the student will be excluded from the Honor Roll for the quarter. Repetition of such act warrants a suspension and/or exclusion from enrollment in the following school year. 4. Damage to Property Students are required to immediately repair, replace, or reimburse any damage to any property of the school or schoolmates. Cases are handled individually. 5. Bringing in of non-academic Materials Bringing a large amount of money, toys, sports equipment, and other electronic equipment to school is strictly prohibited unless it has been required and duly noted in the Daily Guide by the Adviser as part of a school activity. Cellular phones are NOT allowed to be brought to school at any time. Important messages may be relayed through landline. 6. Serious Offenses Vandalism, fighting, cheating, truancy, petty theft, any form of substance abuse, uttering profane words, and insubordination are considered serious offenses and shall be subject to disciplinary action, suspension and/or exclusion from the roll or enrollment in the following school year as evaluated or deemed by the School Head. 7. Fraternities/Sororities Membership in fraternities or Sororities outside the school is strictly prohibited. Any student who has been found out to be a member of such organization shall be subjected to a stern warning to sever all ties and associations with such. A repetition of the former will warrant a recommendation for an immediate transfer or exclusion from the roll within the school year. 8. Cleanliness of School Surroundings Every member of the school community should take part in maintaining cleanliness of the school surroundings. 9. Bullying Pursuant to Republic Act No. 10627, otherwise known as “Anti-Bullying Act,” the school will thoroughly investigate all cases of reported bullying and will render appropriate measures as deemed by the Anti-Bullying Committee of the school. “Bullying” shall refer to any severe or repeated use by one or more students of a written, verbal, or electronic expression, or a physical act or gesture, or any combination thereof, directed at another student that has the effect of actually causing or placing the latter in reasonable fear of physical or emotional harm or damage to his/ her property; creating a hostile environment at school for the other student; infringing on the rights of the other student at school; or materially and substantially disrupting the education process or the orderly operation of a school. Conversely, parents who believe that their wards may have been bullied may not accost the supposed perpetrator but instead report the matter to the adviser or the school authorities for proper action. The same holds true for parents having issues with other classmates or school mates of their child/ children as there is a proper venue for complaints. Should the parent, however, feel that it is imperative to address the child concerned, it can only be done in the presence of his parent or guardian and the adviser or school authorities. Otherwise, it is deemed that it is the parent who bullied the child concerned. D. Dress code, personal appearance, and hygiene We appreciate parental support of the Dress Code which is aimed at providing guidance to assure a school uniform which is comfortable for the student yet which conveys the need to maintain a neat and clean appearance and the purposefulness of the learning environment. A school seamstress is available to sew the uniforms. You may avail the services of your own seamstress as long as the proper cut and specifications are followed. P.E. shirts are available at the school office. Deviations from the above dress code are reflected in the demerit system which will appear in the conduct record of the student every grading quarter. A student may not be allowed to attend classes if these violations are done habitually. 1. School Uniform Student’s uniform should be clean, in good repair, comfortable, and of proper size. Proper and complete uniform, which includes the blazers for the high School level and P.E. Jackets for all levels must be worn regularly during assigned days. No other jacket may be worn on P.E. days. All uniform shirts must be neatly tucked in and properly buttoned. The student must adhere to the schedule of the days the uniform must be worn. 2. Civilian Day Attire T-shirts may be worn during Civilian days provided they do not advertise any form of tobacco or alcohol, are free of objectionable art work or lettering, and are generally in good taste. 3. Footwear Proper footwear constitutes leather shoes for formal Uniform and rubber shoes or sneakers for P.E. uniform. Socks must be worn at all times. Slippers and sandals may not be worn on civilian days. 4. Wearing of Jewelry Wearing of jewelry for everyday use is discouraged for security reasons. 5. Haircut All boys must maintain a proper haircut. Goatees must be shaved off and mustache properly groomed. Earrings for boys are strictly prohibited. Inspection shall be made every 1st Monday of each month. Girls must comb hair swept away from the face or preferably with a barrette, clip, or ponytail at all times. 6. Hygiene Check A hygiene check will be conducted periodically for inspection of fingernails, which must be short, clean undergarments, ears. The hair must be free of lice and well maintained. Students found out with lice will immediately be sent home and requested to remain at home until such time that the hair is found to be free of head lice. E. Other Matters 1. Bus and Catering Service The school can recommend reliable and trustworthy persons who can provide Bus or Catering Services for your child. Please make sure that contracts are signed, terms are clear and duly observed. For the Bus Service please clarify certain conditions as to the shuttling of your child especially during special days and activities which may not follow the schedule of regular school days. Should problems arise, complaints and grievances must be directed to the Bus Service Operator or Caterer and the School office. If the problem persists or remains unresolved, we strongly recommend you to avail of the services of the other Bus Service operators and Caterers available to avoid unnecessary anxiety and further misunderstanding. Although these services are exclusive and handled by private operators, propriety dictates that payments for such services must be on a regular basis and given directly to the operators since their services alleviated certain responsibilities that should have been provided by the home. 2. Student’s insurance coverage All the students will be covered by a personal accident insurance policy. In case of accidents, proper forms must be filled and signed by the attending physician to ensure a prompt reimbursement of expenses incurred. 3. Field Trips Co-curricular field trips within the city are conducted periodically based on the curriculum and subject matter and will provide a first- hand experience for the children. Attendance during these field trips is graded and therefore is greatly encouraged. We also welcome parent assistance in terms of transportation and supervision. 4. Homeroom and School Parties There are three (3) homeroom parties: Semester/Costume Party in October, Thanksgiving Party in December, and end of the year Party in March which are organized by the Class Adviser and students. Birthday parties may be held provided that the Office and Adviser is given a three-day notice before the birthday party. 5. Co-curricular Activities Participation and attendance in various co-curricular programs and activities that are held is graded and therefore COMPULSORY. You can download a printable version HERE
