February 28 COVID-19 Update: Resumption of Classes

Feb 28, 2020

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your patience and support as we continue to work through this very difficult coronavirus situation.

It is with great disappointment that I share with you the latest notice from the DSEJ that classes will not resume in Macau until April. We had really hoped to see students, staff and parents back in school and returning to normal routines sooner, rather than later. However, the delay in the resumption of classes will continue.

DSEJ Director Mr. Lou Pak Seng announced last evening that the following two conditions must be met in order for classes to resume:

DSEJ also indicated that it will give 14 days notice on the re-opening date of schools.

Key points:

As a school, we have planned many scenarios to accommodate for the interruption to the school year, but this latest development does make it more difficult. With that said, we are confident that we can accommodate and overcome this challenge.

Teachers will continue to do an excellent job with online learning by going above and beyond what is expected by the government. The break from online learning will continue as planned for the week of March 2nd to the 6th, and will resume on March 9th.

With respect to our Grade 12 students, we are working with IB and Alberta Education to address this latest development and how it will impact the exams they are expected to write in April, May, and June.

If you have made plans based on the original spring break of March 28- April 5th, I would advise against cancelling them. Parents can expect another communication from me next week.

We greatly appreciate the support and understanding of our parent community during this very challenging time. We know how much stress this puts on families and all of us are doing everything we can to get through this. We will get through this together and come out stronger on the other side.
