Respected Parents and Guardians
Assalam-o-Alaikum & Greetings!
We value your patience and support during this unprecedented and challenging time. While the world witnessed this pandemic which led to closure of most educational institute across the globe, DHACSS with its finest team effectively transformed itself from regular to virtual/ online learning. This phase, though, was difficult but managed with the help of your continued support.
Now as per Government of Pakistan's decision a phased reopening of DHACSS Institutes (DIs) is on its way. We are aware that Pre-primary and Primary students have not seen the Schools for a long time. However, we were more concerned regarding their exposure to this pandemic. Now that we have ample preparation and learning to tackle the pandemic with both active and passive measures, this segment of students will also be able to come back to school life effective from 1 February 2021. Resumption of academics activities for other levels will be as follows:-
- Phase – I - Start of academic session for grade IX - X wef 18 Jan 2021
- Phase – II - Start of academic session for grade V - VIII wef 1 Feb 2021
- Phase – III - Start of academic session for Pre-primary/ Primary up-to Grade IV level wef 1 Feb 2021, In Sha Allah.
Since the pandemic is not fully over therefore, our main concern must always, be the minimisation of risk to children, families and staff. Hence, all COVID Standing Operating Procedures (SOPs) will be in place. While our DIs will follow strict SOPs, we expect you to educate your wards to follow suit. In this regard your cooperation is of utmost importance.
Keeping in view the limited available time of learning, we have balanced our routine syllabus curriculum to a well-planned and worthwhile syllabus for all grades. Examination syllabus for grades IX & X will be according to revised syllabus by Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK).
Since we are not allowing our canteens to operate for availability of snacks due to obvious reasons therefore, we expect parents/ guardians to send their wards with homemade snacks and water bottle.
God forbid, If your child, or anyone else in your family, shows COVID -19 symptoms (high temperature, coughing or lack of smell or taste), you should not send him/ her to School/ College, but should instead follow government guidance related to testing and isolation. You should call us at School/ College for advice. If your child develops symptoms at School/ College, they will be sent home immediately and government guidance should be followed.
Arrival and departure from School/ College may be staggered for which you will be informed. Social distancing by parents/ guardians is expected during dropping and picking your ward from institute. Use of public transport may be minimised or ensure that driver is following the COVID - 19 SOPs.
Principal and other related staff are always available to talk to on telephone. Therefore, personal meeting other than the exceptional event are not recommended due to COVID - 19 SOPs.
I thank you for your continuous support.
