Pollution forecast indicate three consecutive days of pollution of 301-500

 

According to Beijing Education Bureau regarding the new air pollution action plan, when the alert level is between 301-500 three consecutive days, the headmaster will initiate the emergency communication system to ensure all staff and parents are informed of a decision to close. Details will go out by phone calls, emails and be placed on the website, if possible, the day before. We are required by the directive to ensure work is made available for students whilst they remain at home. This will be done via email. Teachers will provide guidance on how this can be used to maximum effect.

 

 Note: If the first check shows a high level (AQI >200)in the morning by 8am, the school nurse will re-check at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM.
