WHY IS RESUMPTION DATE REMINDERS NECESSARY?
On this platform, we have considered at length the importance of an open and meaningful constant communication between the school authority and the parents of the students. This is because the more you carry the parents along in the management of your school, the better for all the parties involved.
It is a norm among many students also to mislead their parents about school matters, the school resumption date inclusive. This they do in order to buy more time for themselves to enjoy a much longer holiday. Taking this official date straight into the ears of the parents will really help.
Sending well spaced out reminders to the parents during the time the holidays elapse can also help in getting fees and dues paid as soon as the new term begins. As the resumption date reminders come in, the parents also start sourcing for funds to pay. This is much better than letting the date dawn on them instantly.
