Did they update the references
@Harpar Thy did update the reference. But nearby stop is about 1km away from my home. The school is 1.6km from my home. Should I opt pvt van or should I contact the school. Am just confused. ŸŸ€™€
If bus route is not yet confirmed then can we select tentative for now & change later
@lightonmind just to clarify have they updated the ready references which was not showing up earlier?
I have the same doubt.
@Harpar yes today afternoon they enabled ready reference
Oh okay. Thank you @ lightonmind. Cos for us it is still not showing
@shravankumar Is private van for DKS a safe option? Can we really trust them? Please share your opinion.
One of my friends daughter is in DKS and is using private transport for her. She says it is safe
@Harpar thanks alot . Will try for private van then.
Having fixed stops is one big drawback of this school. Unlike other schools that offer pick up from any place within a certain radius & accommodate new stops as needed. Even for aptts on the school road, buses will not stop at the gate of every aptt it seems. One will have to make arrangements to reach the designated stop even if it is the next aptt. That can be really difficult for parents on a regular basis. Private vans are an option but most advise against them
@2023KC We went near the school and found a private van driver who is with kumarans since many years. He even gave a parent number from same area whose kid study at DKS.
@2023KC why private vans are not preferred by most people?
@lightonmind... while visiting the school for dd payment i had seen some private vans near the school gate and got the information for van near my home... this is Suresh Number for jp nagar but you can call him and enquire for oher vans near your area... 96203 36087
For us no call for special classes in April. Does everybody gets the call for these classes or only selected few?
Regarding what are these special classes? Any details?
Not sure about CBSE, but for ICSE , my kid has been suggested to attend Summer Reading Programme at MLS , which will be conducted for nearly 8 days starting march end
The Summer Reading Programme is also at CBSE DKS starting March 27th but my son's current school's last working day is March 31st.
Is anybody else in a similar situation?
For people not sure about bus route now just select the nearest stop & you can change later. That's what school replied. But it has to be done before paying first installment i think
How do we know if our kids need to attend the workshops in DKS. how are they communicated? We weren't told anything
yes they have communicated on the edchemy portal.
@Leo213 - oh ok. Where on portal should we check?
@lightonmind - have heard from parents from many schools to not go for private vans. Issues with security & safety. Incidents might happen occasionally but they can be serious. Not sure whether it would be wise to trust. If someone's kid is availing Kumarans private vans for long time the feedback would be helpful. It helps with flexibility of choosing residence since school bus has fixed stops
And idea on when the 1st std classes are going to commence?
@2023KC Oh i already selected private van option thinking those large buses don't come inside area.
Thanks for the information will contact him.
under publication on edchemy.
May be they hv called based on evaluation of kids performance. To bridge gap. They hv asked my son for attending reading workshop for a week or so. We hv to drop n pick on our own...
