Notice For Parents
I sincerely hope and pray that all of you are doing well. In a matter of weeks, COVID19 has changed the way of educating students worldwide. The onslaught of this virus has left the entire world in a state of confusion and uncertainty and we as a BHS family are trying our best to come to terms with it.
The Management and teachers of Birla High School are keeping pace with changing times by incorporating a variety of ways and means to educate our students. Apart from having regular online classes, a plethora of resources are shared including teacher made videos, ppts etc to keep our pupils engaged in a positive and productive manner. We are giving a number of options to our students.
Life for all of us has changed and the ‘new normal’ has impacted us all- you, our students, our staff and every one across the globe. We are all constantly praying for the end of these trying times! I would like to thank you for your words of encouragement and suggestions through your mails regarding our effort to reach out to our pupils digitally. It is a new domain and a challenge for all of us. I can assure you that very sincere efforts are being made by the teachers to prepare digital content for their pupils.
Since there were issues regarding the use of Zoom as a platform, we explored further and have tried out other ways of reaching out. This is not to create confusion but an attempt to find the best alternative. My earnest request to you is that none of us were prepared for such a time, it took the teachers some time to work on the email ids of students/ parents , as they have just moved into their new classes. As you are coping with no help at hand for domestic chores, you must understand that the teachers are also struggling to manage all fronts. I have been in constant touch with my team and monitoring their efforts.
Some parents have expressed their concern about shared devices at home by themselves / siblings. We at BHS (Senior Section) have decided that all online classes / sharing of content from Monday 27th April till 8th May,’20 will be done between 9 a.m. and 12 noon and again from 3 to 4 p.m. This has been done to structure their timings. On the days they have an online class they will be notified in advance. All classes are supported by digital content which can be viewed later also.
Let our young champions continue to learn at their own pace and bloom beautifully. We are always there to guide them through this unprecedented time and even after. Waiting to be in school with the children post 10th of June till then take care and stay safe.
Wishing you good health and do take all necessary precautions,
