Students should be escorted to and from the Institute by a parent or guardian, signed in upon arrival, and promptly collected at the end of each class. Parents or guardians must also provide information about any other authorized individuals who may collect their child, and these authorized individuals will be required to sign when the child is picked up. This is done to ensure the safety and well-being of the students. LOTUS provides an opportunity for students to attend a make-up session in the event of their non-attendance, provided that they have notified the institute in advance of their absence. It’s important to note that the availability of make-up classes may not be guaranteed for all classes.
