deeply concerned and shaken by the recent tragic incident in which one precious
life has been lost in a school in NCR. You, as much as we are, must be
concerned about the safety of your children at school.
Convent School, Gurgaon, enough security measures are already in place and many
more are being put in place to further enhance the safety and security of our
children. We would like to reassure you that the school is doing everything
possible to provide a safe environment to all the children. In this regard, we
would like to share with you the safety measures the school is taking.

which is always guarded. Entry/exit register is being maintained meticulously
to record details of visits of parents and other outsiders.
- No visitor/parent is permitted to go beyond the
reception area. If a visitor needs to use the toilet, the school attendant
is being asked to accompany the visitor to the washroom area and escort
the visitor back to reception.

outside. There are separate toilets for smaller children and they are
helped and escorted by lady attendants to the toilet.

identity cards provided by the school.
- For safety of the children, school gates are
being opened only at 7:15 am and entry into the building is permitted only

areas of the school.
