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 inside and 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).
Closures and Delays
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.
Bus Safety Training
Starting December 3 students will be given bus safety training. The training will include the requirement of wearing seat belts on TIS transportation, emergency exits, fire extinguishers and what to do in case of a collision or other incident on the road.
