We will keep your child ready in the office at old or new building wherever children are located.

Please do not pick up your child directly from gym or play ground during lunch break without signing them out from the office. This would help prevent unsafe practice of taking one's child without informing the concerned personnel. We will appreciate your cooperation!

Please do not move the cones to park or enter into reserved areas. Loading unloading is not permissible in the handicapped and reserved parking areas as it leads to traffic jam by Gate 1.
