Latest Announcement

Dear Parents and Students,

In order to reduce crowding at the end of the school day we will be implementing a staggered dismissal schedule according to the grade group bubbles. We ask that you arrive prior to dismissal time to ensure a quick exit from the school.

Time Grade
2:30 All JK and SK Car and Bus Students dismissed
2:40 All Grade 1 – 3 Car and Bus Students dismissed
2:45 All Bus students dismissed (Grades 4- 12)
2:50 All Grades 4 – 6 Car Students dismissed
2:55 All Grades 7, 9 and 11 Car Students dismissed
3:00 All Grades 8, 10 and 12 Car Students dismissed

The pickup will be outside the school gates. No one will be allowed inside the school area during the dismissal time. All car pickups must depart immediately after receiving the students from dismissal. Do not congregate at the school gates. Times are subject to change if more time is needed between bubbles for dismissal.

Please note that Bus Students will not be picked up the morning of Tuesday, September 15th and Wednesday, September 16th. Parents are responsible for student drop off in the mornings on these two days. Buses will take students home starting Tuesday, September 15th. Student pickup in the morning will begin Thursday, September 17th.

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Parents and Students,

In accordance with the announcement made by the Ministry of Education the students will return to school starting Tuesday, September 15th, 2020.

When we return to school we will be following the Even and Odd School Attendance schedule. Students who were assigned to the Odd Section will attend school on September 15th, 17th, 21st and 23rd. Students who were assigned to the Even Section will attend school on September 16th, 20th, 22nd and 24th. All parents and students were sent a notice in Engage informing them if they were in the Even or Odd Section. The half student body attendance is to help teach and monitor the new procedures for school entrance, dismissal, lunch and movement in the school.

Lessons

When students attend on their assigned day they will be given the lessons and work that they will then do at home the following day. The students will not sign onto MS Teams on their day at home as they will have already been given the lessons and assignments. The teacher will also be unavailable as they will be teaching the other section. When the students return to the school their teachers will collect their assignments or take the work up in class.

JK – Grade 6 Schedule

The JK to Grade 6 classes will follow their Sunday to Thursday schedules for classes during this time.

Dear Parents and Students,

We are currently activating the 2020-2021 course lists and timetables for the students. They will appear on Engage over the next several days and until then there will be limited Engage access. The class lists are final and there will be no changes to the lists. A reminder that due to safety protocols for Covid-19 that no parents and students at this time should come to the school.

For Grade 9 – 12 students Mr. Leo our Guidance counsellor will be contacting some students about their timetable as there were conflicts with your chosen subjects. In cases of course request changes, please email Mr. Leo at leo.lovett-doust@heritageinternationalschool.com. Remember that course changes are not guaranteed and all electives will not exceed 20 students this year.

For students or parents that have forgotten their Engage username and password or have locked themselves out of their account, please contact Mr. Waleed at it@heritageinternationalschool.com or Mr. Kamal at it-kamal@heritageinternationalschool.com.

A reminder that parents and students that are newly registered to the school will have a scheduled training session on September 1st, 2nd or 3rd on Engage use and sign-up and will be able to access student timetables at this time.
