Happy Language Day from OIS JVLR!
Friday Lunch Lounge
Dear Parents and Families,
It was so interesting today during Lunch Lounge, that we had some of our Grade 1 and 2 classes join us in their class on the big screen.
Students spent some time joining in a fun online quiz and guessing what the answers might be.
I have to mention how proud I am of all the students for following COVID school protocol. Students have been masking, sanitizing and trying their very hardest to socially distance. In the classes we have organised seating plans, where students are able to identify their 'bubbles' and close contacts. We do have daily play but we are mindful of the time we spend interacting with one another, so we have a 1 class, 15 minutes, 1 space daily play opportunity. After the break, we will revise break and play times for the students.
From next week, if a case is reported in school, only close contacts from Grades 1-5 will be sent home. For Early years, if there is a positive case in school, the whole class will be sent home. We are hoping that we do not have to send any children home at all!
We are still mandated to offer the Learning From Home Programme (LFH), I made clear in last weeks blog post who our LFH programme is for and who it is not for.
Next week, as the numbers decrease online again, we will share exact details of what is expected for LFH for different grades.
Have a great weekend!!
Learning From Home Details
We are very excited to see more and more children each day arriving at school.
At the time of writing, we mostly have single digits for those students Learning From Home. Every Wednesday, you will be asked if your child would like to come in the following Monday, please be sure to encourage your child to come to school, where possible.
Also, if it is your child’s first day with us in the building, do make sure you inform their teacher so we welcome them into school in the morning.
Even though we are required to provide the Learning From Home Model, we would like parents to be mindful about how we are using it for students.
Ultimately, our LFH programme is for:
The LFH programme is not for:
If an entire Grade is in school, for obvious reasons there will be no links available on Managebac.
If a parent communicates with a teacher on the day that their child is supposed to be in school and asks for links to learning, unless there is a genuine reason, links will not be created for that individual child and the child will remain at home with no access to sync lessons.
We hope that you understand, our goal is to welcome all students back into school.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions or add them to FAQs from parents.
