Health and Safety
Our registration procedures were outlined in the ‘Health and Safety 2019’ letter that was sent to families via email on Thursday this week. As a reminder for all, children are registered as late and will require a late slip after the following times:
- F1 and F2 – from 8:30am
- F3, Years 1 and 2 – from 8.20am
- Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 – from 8:00am
If for any reason your child is absent from school, we ask for you to either inform the class teacher via email or, inform the receptionists via telephone from 7:30am on the morning of absence. If your child usually takes the school bus, we would also ask for you to also inform Ms Trang, our bus manager, via email at Trang.Pham@bisvietnam.com">Trang.Pham@bisvietnam.com
When calling reception please use the telephone number:
- Early Years and Infants (EY&I) – 028 3636 0055
If school has not been informed as to the reason for your child being absent, the receptionists will contact parents on the first morning of absence to establish the reason. If possible, it would be helpful to indicate how long you expect your child(ren) to be absent for.
Before and after school waiting area
When waiting to drop off and collect the children at the EY&I we ask for all parents, carers and children to wait on the ground floor only. We are in the process of installing extra seating in the shaded areas to increase the seating areas for our community at these times. This rule is in place to ensure lessons and clubs that are running at these times are not disturbed and all children in the building are kept safe. People sitting around the lower ground floor outside the canteen and along the corridors will be asked to move to the ground floor by our teaching staff. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our campus safe.
As in all major cities petty crime does occur, as a reminder to all of us please always take care of your personal belongings, especially when walking between campuses and across roads.
The Parent Teacher Group plays such an important role in the life of the school. Last year, it was great to see so many parents volunteering their time to support events and activities that had such a positive impact on the whole BIS community.
Each week, the PTG has a post highlighting what is happening over the coming weeks and months, and how you can get involved. Click on the link below to find out more:
