Keeping our Community Safe

Dear Parents,

On Friday afternoon, January 15th, Shandong Province’s Education Department sent out new instructions to all schools in Shandong, specifying that parents cannot visit campus until further notice.

Continuing close connections with parents is key to teaching and raising our students, especially in these times, and this new directive means that Zoom conferences, phone calls, and emails are important now more than ever.

Maintaining a Healthy Community

Furthermore, the government needs us to work together and keep ourselves and others healthy by following these guidelines:

• Students need to wear masks to campus and when leaving the front gate. Parents who pick up or drop off your child, please also wear a mask
• The government strongly recommends no private gatherings. If needed, keep gatherings to less than 10 people
• Check temperatures every evening, and help your child bring their temperature log card to school every morning
• Monitor your child for these potential COVID-19 symptoms:
Headache, fatigue, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, muscle aches or joint pains, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever or chills, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, new loss of taste or smell, chest pain, pink eye (conjunctivitis)

If your child has a fever, is vomiting, or has diarrhea, then please follow these procedures:
• Keep your child at home and report to your child’s principals’ assistant
• Get a negative COVID-19 test result from an approved hospital and send the results to the Health Office: nurse@isqchina.com
• Remain in contact with your child’s principals’ assistant when your child’s symptoms clear
(The government’s guidelines require that students must be fever free for 48 hours, and students who are vomiting or have diarrhea need to be symptom free for 72 hours before returning to school)

For other COVID-19 symptoms listed, please report to your child’s principals’ assistant and await further instructions until sending your child to school.

Thank you for continuing to work with us to keep our school and community healthy and safe.

Sincerely,

Carol Tan, Public Relations & ISQ Leadership Team
