What kind of security arrangement does the school have for the children?
WIS employs School as well as Private Security Services for this purpose. Parents are free to drop and pickup their children inside the school premises. The school has to be notified if anybody else is coming to pickup the kids as the security services have to identify them before handing over the children. If parents are late, teachers will supervise the departure till 1.30pm, after which the office will mind them until they are picked up.
Parents need to pickup children within half an hour of closing time so that it makes it comfortable all round.
