Our school preschool-elementary administrators will be sending a detailed notice that will provide you and your child with details as to what each of these days will look like and what is expected from our students. The advisory teachers will be sending out the notice for middle- high students.

Our first expected on-campus day for all students will be on Wednesday, September 1st. A reminder, as per the parent/guardian notice on July 23rd, 2021 of the expected school arrival and departure times for students is as follows:

  • Preschool-elementary students are required to arrive by 8:10am, with homeroom beginning at 8:15am. The Main Gate will open at 7:50am. Students should arrive between 7:50am and 8:10am and enter through the Main Gate. School dismissal is between 3:15pm and 3:30pm dependent upon grade level. Exception—Friday dismissal time is between 2:15pm and 2:30pm. Details will be shared in a notice from the PSES admin team.

School dismissal is at 3:35pm for all middle-high school students, with the exception of Fridays, when all middle-high students are dismissed at 2:35pm. Middle-High school students are to enter via the East Gate and then proceed to entrance door identified as GYM A. The East Gate will open to students at 7:50am. Students should arrive between 7:50am and 8:10am.

Due to the notice from the local authorities that prevented us from opening on August 9th as we had originally planned, we have had to make adjustments to our school calendar. Our updated school calendar can be found on our school website at using this link. Please note that the total number of teaching days remains unchanged as we have made the required changes to the school calendar to ensure this.

In an effort to provide support to students, parents/guardians not familiar with using ZOOM, Seesaw, and Managebac, two sessions will be held by our IT Department explaining how to use each program. The two sessions will be as follows:

–Wednesday, August 25th at 3:30pm –delivered in English

–Wednesday, August 25th at 4:30pm –delivered in Chinese

IMPORTANT:

  • For student’s health and safety concerns, we will require all students to have a COVID-19 test valid within 48 hours before school starts (we recommend to do the test starting on Monday, August 30th). Thank you for your cooperation and support to ensure for the health and safety of our community!
  • Students are required to have been in Beijing for 14 days prior to the first day of on campus learning (1st of September)
  • As required health and safety information from higher authorities, we will collect 14 days student temperature check, CISB Preschool Student’s Health Acknowledgement, CISB Student Acknowledgement of NCP Prevention and Control. Please click the link to upload all relevant documents by Tuesday, August 31st; https://www.cisbeijing.com/cisb-sc/
  • NOTE-students are required to provide all relevant forms/documents in the link above before starting school, and hand in a hard copy of their negative COVID-19 result at the gate on Wednesday, September 1st, 2021

We are conscientiously preparing for another healthy and safe year at CISB. To ensure the safety of our community, we would like to remind you that COVID-19 continues to remain a Global concern. Recently, there have been COVID-19 cases reported domestically. We must all remain vigilant and prioritize taking the necessary precautions to continue to protect ourselves. If each one of us does our part, we can increase the likelihood that we can maintain a COVID-19 FREE CAMPUS in 2021-2022!

We are very excited to have this school year begin and look forward to working together to ensure that your child has a very positive learning experience.  We are hopeful that this short period of online classes will allow for students and teachers to get to know each other, learn about expectations for the new year, be introduced to curriculum to be studied and more prior to the return to on-campus classes. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and support.

Best wishes that you and your family remain healthy and safe each day.

Best regards,

Douglas K. Prescott

学前/小学的在线介绍会由班主任老师召开,初高中部由指导老师召开。您将收到学生班主任老师/指导老师的电子邮件,邮件中包含Zoom链接以及老师的演示文稿。老师们的介绍和演讲将于9:30 开始,时长15-20分钟。温馨提示,我们的班主任老师/指导老师将于下午1点向您与学生们重复上午介绍会的内容,如果您有需要也可参与下午的会议。

8月27日(星期五)、8月30日(星期一)和8月31日(星期二),全校所有学生将按照年级进行在线学习。学前/小学管理团队将会发送一份详细的通知,向您和您的孩子提供具体的细节,以及对学生的期望。初高中的指导老师将会向学生们发送相关信息。

9月1日(星期三)为所有学生第一个到校日。根据2021年7月23日的家长信中所提到的内容,学生需要到校和离校的具体时间如下:

  • 学前及小学学生要求在上午8:10前到达学校,班主任将从上午8:15开始授课。学校正门将于上午7:50开放。学生应在上午7:508:10之间到,并通过正门进入校园放学时间为下午3:15至3:30,具体由年级而定。其中,周五放学时间为下午2:15至2:30。具体时间会在学前及小学管理团队的通知中再次说明。

由于政府部门的相关通知,我们延后了原定8月9日的开学日期,为此我们不得不再次调整我们的校历。您可以通过此链接查看最新的校历。为保证本学年的总教学天数不变,我们已对学校日历进行了必要的更改。

为了向不熟悉使用Zoom、Seesaw和Managebac的学生、家长以及监护人提供相应的支持,我们的IT部门将举办两次线上会议,解释如何使用这些软件。这两次会议将举办于:

–8月25日星期三下午3:30–以英文召开

  • 根据政府相关部门对健康和安全信息的相关要求,我们将收集学生14天的体温检测表、CISB幼儿园学生的健康承诺书、CISB学生疫情防控承诺书。请点击下方链接,在8月31日星期二,之前上传所有相关文件;https://www.cisbeijing.com/cisb-sc/

我们正在紧锣密鼓地准备着新的学年,希望CISB全体学生能够在健康和安全的情况下步入新的学年。为了确保我们整个社区的安全,我们想再次提醒您,新冠病毒仍然是全球关注的问题。近期,国内持续报告新冠病毒确诊病例。我们都必须保持警惕,采取必要的防护措施,保护好我们自己。如果我们每个人都尽自己的一份力,相信我们就有可能在2021-2022年继续创造一个没有新冠病毒的校园!

我们非常高兴本学年即将开启,并期待着与您共同努力,让孩子们拥有一段愉快的学业旅程。我们希望,即将开始的这一小段的在线课程,可以帮助学生和教师在重返校园之前相互了解,沟通新学年的期望与目标,以及即将要学习的课程。提前感谢您的合作和支持。

祝您和您的家人身体健康。

顺致敬意,
