Each CISS school will operate using their now established procedures. The circular from the People’s Committee goes on to say that during the week of March 9, Grade 12 students will return and beginning March 16, all students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 will be in school.

Having said this, please note that government authorities - the Ministry of Education (MoET, the Department of Education and Training (DoET), the HCMC Health Department and the People’s Committee are continuing to meet and to monitor the situation.

We respect the gravity of this situation and believe all decisions are being made in the best interests of the health and welfare of our children.

At BCIS, all Canadian/International teachers from Grade 1 to Grade 12 are in attendance at school daily from 8:30 until 3:00. Online lessons are continuing and students and families are expected to be online during school time.
