All parents visiting the school are requested to go to the office and ask for permission from the Principal. Parents are not permitted to go into the dormitories or meet members of the staff without prior permission of Warden / Principal.
No child is allowed to go out, even with parents, without an exeat slip signed by the Warden/Principal. The school accepts no responsibility for any child who has gone out on exeat.
Parents are asked to give the names of local friends, if any, whom their children may visit. Children are allowed to visit these friends and relatives on exeat weekends as per procedure. Students are allowed to go for exeat soon after the function. No business will be transacted on Sundays and girls will be allowed to go out on a Sunday only if prior arrangements have been made.
No friends or relatives passing through Panchgani will be allowed to take out any pupil and no visitor will be allowed to meet a student without written authority from the Parents / Guardian.
Correspondence from parents should not be addressed to the teachers or matrons. All correspondence should be through the Principal.
Students will be allowed to speak over phone twice a month ( i.e. once in 15 days). If you wish to speak to your daughter (from Willingdon, Upper and Lower New Dormitory) you may call on telephone number 02168 240316 or 240729 between 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. from Mondays to Fridays (except Wednesdays) by taking a prior appointment in the morning from the office on telephone no.

Do not send valuables with children. They will be confiscated. Only small plain ear-rings (studs) are allowed and no other jewelry. Mobiles phones, i-pods tablets or any other electrical devices are strictly not allowed. If found with your child, it will be confiscated and your child will be fined for the same.
Fried food is not allowed and chewing gum is banned.
All students should bring postage and toiletries for the whole term. Envelopes and inland letters should be self addressed and stamped. Your child will write at each weekend.
No pocket money should be given to the students. The same will be supplied from the school and billed accordingly.
Private medicines should be handed to the school nurse in the hospital on arrival. She should also be given full details of any recent illness, the treatment given and further treatment or care required.
The students require play clothes for use in the evenings and weekends. I suggest that SIX outfits will be sufficient for the students from Jr.Kg. to Std.IV and EIGHT sets for the students from Std.V to Std.VI. Clothes should NOT be closely fitting and ‘tops’ should be loose and reach below the waist. Girls will need one party dress, but other clothing should be simple. No coloured outfits should be provided for the students from Std.VII and above. They will be provided with special sets of uniforms by the school which will be used by them after the school hours / leisure time.
Girls from Std.VII and downwards should have short hair. Girls from Std.VIII upwards should be able to plait their own hair without help
Strong locks should be provided to the students to lock their desks, lockers and tuck tins.
Tuitions will be provided as soon as possible for weaker students on request from parents.
