In light of COVID-19 global pandemic, the state of Haryana and neighboring states (National Capital Region) has taken drastic steps and imposed lockdown till 31st March 2020.  Scottish high international school Gurgaon  management wisely decided to close school early to avoid spread of virus through physical contact and protect children and teachers’ well-being. 

The school is taking best efforts to provide continued education to our children and is going to introduce online initiatives for the new session. While this is a smart, logical decision in consideration of the health of all students and faculty. During this time of pandemic as kid are having uncertain time of holidays. So during this uncertain time kids are not attending the school for the following reasons, we are seeking a revised school fee for the upcoming quarter:

As per the current trend and based on patterns observed in other affected countries, it seems the lockdown (full or partial) may extend well beyond the 31st March 2020.

Despite the "high-quality method of instruction" that SHIS is striving to establish, the student body will no longer have access to resources (including but not limited to: labs, facilities, valuable face to face guidance and advising from faculty) to meet standards of a regular school day learning. We believe that these are essential factors of the school learning experience.

We believe that these are valuable hundreds of hours we are missing out on being at the school physically, though we do understand that it is a critical time to uphold social-distancing and self-quarantine to ensure safety of both vulnerable and general populations. It is entirely impossible for the students to receive the fullness of the educational experience we are paying for.

Many parents of SHIS students are going to experience great financial suffering due to lockdowns as there will be impact to business/ job throughout the state. Even our Prime Minister has requested every citizen to do their part in these tough times and support the community. One such initiative requested by the PM is: business owners/individuals to not deduct any salary of the employee/housekeeping staff.

We believe SHIS can also support the community by providing a revised school fee that greatly assist in alleviating the financial stress and uncertainty of the situation. For starters, eliminating charges for Transport Fee and Lunch Fee and discounting Composite Fee and Development Fee till the school resumes normal operations. Therefore, we respectfully implore the administration to rightfully grant us revised school fee for upcoming months.

Sign this petition to spread awareness to ensure our message with proper support from parents’ community is shared with SHIS administration and Haryana Government.

We are seeking your responses till 11.59 PM, 31 March 2020. On 1st of April 2020, we will share the signed petition with SHIS administration and Department of School Education, Government of Haryana.
