MEET YOUR NEW COUNSELOR


Aug. 27

Greetings! I would like to take a moment to introduce myself as your new Guidance Counselor. My name is Mrs. Cotton. I, along with my husband and four children, are new to Tianjin, but not to China. We were blessed to have spent five years in Shanghai and a short time in Dali (Yunnan). I am thrilled to be working with your student and a wonderful staff at TIS. I have had the pleasure of working with some of your students, and they are a truly wonderful group. With fifteen years of college and masters level admissions as my training, I look forward to once again working with students as they take their next academic steps. Please feel free to contact me with any questions at shelley.cotton@tiseagles.com

Health Office

After the start of the new semester, the immunity of students often declines which increases the likelihood of them getting infectious diseases or triggering some allergic reactions such as cold, diarrhea, rhinitis, skin problems, etc. We recommend that you let your children have sufficient sleep and have nutritious and balanced meals to help their immune system continue to be in a healthy state. In addition, we still need to pay attention to personal hygiene and wear a mask to prevent infectious diseases.

Please help us to maintain a safe and healthy environment at school by not sending your child to school if they are ill, have a cough or runny nose that cannot be independently controlled inside a classroom, fever at or above 37.3˚C (99.1˚F), rash related with illness (chickenpox, measles, roseola, etc.), or have vomited or had diarrhea (3 or more watery stools in a day) from sickness in the past 24 hours. Your child must be fever-free for 24 hours without any fever-reducing medication to return to school. All staff and students that report a fever of 37.3 or above will go to the fever clinic to complete a COVID-19 test and will not be permitted on the school campus until they have been symptom-free for 24 hours and have a negative COVID-19 test.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep TIS a healthy and safe environment.
