Students are expected to be present in school on all working days and attend all classes and activities as laid out in the school calendar and the time table.
Optimus school calendar has generous school holidays. So Parents are advised not to ask for further leave for their children. Because the holidays are generous no student can risk attendance to fall below 85%. Should this happen, the students’ promotion to the next class could be jeopardised.
Should leave be required because of sickness of one or two days a letter to the appropriate class teacher on the return of the student to school should be sent. For longer absences please notify the class teacher and furnish a medical certificate with a note to the Principal on the students return. Boarders should also notify the Head of Boarding.
Leave for any other reason needs to be applied for in writing to the Principal in advance. The Principal may or may not grant such leave.
