Dear Parents/Guardians,

You are receiving this letter today as the result of a directive we received yesterday from the local authorities informing us that due to the current epidemic situation, regular COVID-19 tests need to be carried out on all students and staff within Beijing. This includes all staff and students in grades 1 to 12 in our school.

As a result, all students from grades 1 to 12 must bring with them on Monday, October 25th, a “paper copy” of their ID that was used for their previous COVID-19 tests. This copy is to be provided to their homeroom teacher (for elementary students) and to their period 1 teachers (for middle-high students).

As requested by the local authorities, students will be divided into random groups for testing. The first group will be 50% of the students from grades 1 to 12 who will have a COVID-19 test at CISB on Monday, October 25th and/or on Tuesday, October 26th. In future weeks the remaining 50% of the students in grades 1 to 12 will be randomly tested as follows: 20% one time; 20% one time and 10% one time, until all students in grades 1 to 12 have been tested. Following this round of testing, a second round of tests might be conducted based on new directives from the local authorities.

The COVID-19 tests will be carried out at CISB by licensed healthcare providers. The test will consist of a throat swab. CISB staff, including one of our nurses, will be present to help oversee this process and reassure those students who may require support.

Thank you for your cooperation, support and understanding as we follow the directions by the local authorities who are trying to ensure for the highest level of safety possible for students and staff at all schools within Beijing. Random ongoing testing has been successful with identifying COVID-19 cases within China during the pandemic and fortunately kept the number of cases to a minimum.

Wishing everyone an enjoyable Sunday and positive upcoming week. 

Best regards,

亲爱的家长/监护人,

展信安!

今天想借邮件通知您,我校于昨日接到有关部门的通知,鉴于疫情形势,将开展全市核酸定期筛查的相关工作。届时将对我校所有教职员工以及112年级的学生进行定期的核酸检测。

基于相关工作安排1 12 年级的所有学生必须在 10 25 日星期一 随身携带身份证件的复印件并交给班主任或指导老师。该身份证件的复印件最好与之前做核酸检测的身份证件一致。

依照相关部门工作指导,核酸检测将分批次进行。本次筛查将随机选出50% 1 12 年级学生于10 25 日星期一和/ 10 26 日星期二进行检测。在接下来的几周内,1 12 年级其余 50% 的学生将按以下方式随机测试: 20% 第二批次;20%第三批次,10%第四批次,直到所有学生完成检测。之后可能会按照政府部门的安排再进行第二轮检测。

核酸检测将在学校进行,并由有相关资质的医疗机构来做。检测会进行咽拭子采集。 学校的员工以及一位在校护士将在场帮助监督这一过程,并会安抚那些需要帮助的学生。

感谢您的合作、支持和理解,希望通过我们的共同努力,遵照相关部门的指示,尽最大可能保障全体学生和教职员工的健康安全。在目前疫情期间,持续性的随机检测能够成功地识别了中国境内的新冠病例,并争取将病例数保持在最低水平。

祝大家有个愉快的星期天和积极的下一周。

此致

敬礼
