We have an update regarding the resumption of Pre Kindergarten classes.
Yesterday afternoon, the DSEJ announced that children under the age of 3 will not be permitted to begin Pre Kindergarten classes (K1).
In consultation with the Health Department, it was determined that children under 3 have difficulties wearing a mask and therefore are not able to attend school. However, as soon as the child turns 3, they will be welcome to join their class. Tuition fees already paid for the school year will be applied to the remainder of the year.
Children under 3 years of age are eligible to be enrolled in the TIS Kindergarten Distance Learning Program, which is designed specifically to accommodate our younger students. Tuition fees for the Distance Learning Program will be offered at 50% of the regular tuition level. For families who have already paid the regular tuition, the balance will be transferred to the 2nd term of school fees.
TIS staff will be reaching out to each family today and tomorrow to provide more guidance and answer any questions. One on one Meet the Teacher interviews scheduled between 31st August and 2nd September will still proceed.
