            Dear AIS Parents and Families,

            I hope you are all well and enjoying some quality time with family and friends during this Lunar New Year Break. Today, the Hong Kong government made the decision to extend the 五福彩票app手机版 suspension period across the city until Monday, 2 March 五福彩票app手机版, at the earliest, pending further assessment.

            Online 五福彩票app手机版 at AIS will begin on Monday, 3 February, and you will have heard from your divisional principals today with greater detail. We appreciate that some of you may have chosen to leave Hong Kong or have decided to remain where you are at this time. While we empathize with the choices being made, we remind you that teachers expect regular student participation in the learning activities they are preparing over the coming weeks, to ensure that your child or children continue to make academic progress. Our many modern learning tools allow us to digitally communicate and collaborate in new, engaging ways.

            If you have chosen to leave Hong Kong, you are reminded of the Hong Kong Government’s expectation that students have two full weeks here in Hong Kong to serve their quarantine period, before returning to physical 五福彩票app手机版. As the primary reason for the original 五福彩票app手机版 suspension, it is critical that all members of the AIS community honor this expectation, in order for us to maintain a safe 五福彩票app手机版 campus. We need everyone’s help and cooperation with following this important safeguarding measure at this time. We are confident that as members of the AIS community, we will model our Core Value of Love and do our best to protect our health and the health of others.

            The AIS Leadership Team continues to meet each day to monitor the situation and the directives and advice of local and international health authorities; specifically, the (CDC), the , the (WHO), International SOS, the (CHP), and the Hong Kong Education Bureau.

            On behalf of the Leadership Team, I thank you once again for your support and cooperation and for taking good care of each other.

            We look forward to hearing about the rich learning that will begin to take place via our digital learning resources and classrooms on Monday.

            Stay safe, well, and take good care of each other.

            Sincerely,

            Anita Simpson

This significant measure has been taken to help stop the spread of the new Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

            • All extra curricular activities are cancelled during this period of 五福彩票app手机版 suspension.
            • Naturally, all previously scheduled field trips and excursions are also cancelled, and we will attempt to reschedule as many after 五福彩票app手机版 activities and excursions as possible. This will of course depend on availability, locations, the providers, and the situation in Hong Kong.

            At this time, we ask that you take seriously the directives and advice of the local and international health authorities; specifically, the the (WHO), International SOS, and the . We also urge you to follow the bureau’s advice and return to Hong Kong by 3 February, since this measure was undertaken specifically to provide all members of the AIS community, and Hong Kong, with the required 10-14 incubation period before 五福彩票app手机版 resumes.

            Thank you for doing all you can to protect our 五福彩票app手机版 community and helping to stop the spread of this virus. In the coming two weeks, during our 五福彩票app手机版 suspension, please avoid large crowds (especially airports) and keep children at 五福彩票app手机版 as much as possible.

            On behalf of the Leadership Team, I thank you once again for your support and cooperation and for taking good care of each other.
