General Announcements

From the TIS Health Office

I want to encourage you to take advantage of holiday travels outside of China to catch up on immunizations. The tetanus booster is currently restricted inside China so please check your child’s records to ensure that his/her tetanus is current. For 5th-12th graders, a current (within 10 years) tetanus vaccination or waiver is required before spring trips 2020. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Health Office at nurse@tiseagles.com. Wishing you a safe and healthy Christmas holiday.

Mrs. Christine Gilbert, RN

AQI Reminder

With the recent days of poor air quality, you may be wondering what the TIS policy is for student outdoor activity. Here is a brief summary:

The facilities manager monitors and reports the air quality index for the air outside our school twice daily. Based on the findings, the administration and teachers are notified if action needs to be taken to modify student activities. The best air quality levels allow all students to engage in strenuous activities outside (AQI of 100 or less). Moderate air quality levels allow students with respiratory illness to refrain from participation in strenuous activities (AQI of 150 or less). Poor air quality may require that outdoor activities be modified (AQI of 150-200) or cancelled (AQI above 200).

Here is an important reminder about school closure and delays. In the case of heavy snow, dense fog, heavy rain, or extremely poor air quality, school may be delayed or canceled. In such cases, information will be posted on the TIS website. Additionally, messages will be sent out through the TIS WeChat channel, and an e-mail will be sent to all parents.
