CAMPUS HEALTH & WELL-BEING MEASURES

MABIS will resume on campus learning once the permission to do so is formalised.   

Given the advantage of a relatively small student population, large classroom spaces and the large number of teachers per student, we are able to accommodate everyone back on campus while respecting the recommended Health & Safety Measures and social distancing of at least 1 meter.

The school has started preparations to welcome students back to campus. This includes compliance with the health and safety guidelines issued by the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Public Health.  

Please be informed that while we will be back at school, the students’ experience will be altered. There will be some rules to the work space and material usage in the classroom, along with guidelines for social distancing and maintaining good health and hygiene.

Revised Schedule

The school campus is open to students from 7:30 a.m. – 15:30 p.m. Student arrival and departure times will be staggered to reduce congestion. Families with children attending different class levels are asked to arrive at the earliest drop off time and come pick up at the latest pick up time.

Revised Class schedules:

Level Arrival Time
Pick Up Time
Elementary
7:30 a.m.
15:00 p.m.
Casa
8:00 a.m.
13:00 p.m. for Nappers
14:45 p.m. for Non-nappers
Toddler
8:30 a.m.
12:30 p.m.

While we are making every effort to maintain a rich learning experience for our students, for health and safety reasons, we will have shorter school days for nappers in the Toddler and Casa programs. As all students are required to wear face masks while at school, we are concerned that sleeping with the mask on may pose a risk to the child. Students who usually nap at school are asked to take their nap at home which means that they will return home after lunch. 

General Procedures

  • Students must fill out a Health & Travel Survey and the Student Safeguarding form prior to their return to campus.

Health & Travel Survey

Student Safeguarding

  • Temperature checks are required before leaving home and upon arrival at school. Students must have a temperature under 37.5 degrees Celcius to enter school.
  • Face masks must be worn at all times at school. 
  • Exceptions to wearing face masks are as follows: (a) while students are outdoors for recess, they may choose to wear a face shield or face mask, (b) during PE classes, students do not need to wear face masks but will observe a 2 meter physical distance from one another.
  • Students will wash hands frequently: upon entering school, before entering class, before using a new set of materials, before and after meals.
  • Students will bring and use their own water bottle.
  • Students will respect a 1 meter physical distance at all times.
  • Adults will not be allowed on campus, unless for specific reasons.  
  • Parents will drop off students and pick up students in front of the main office.  
  • All school staff will wear a face mask or face shield or both when interacting with students.
  • Students using the school bus service will receive a temperature check before boarding the bus and be seated far apart during the trip.

Communication

We encourage lots of discussions at home about COVID-19 and the measures that will be put in place at school. Upon return to school, our teachers will also discuss with students about COVID-19, symptoms, treatment and preventative measures. It is also important to help students understand that the infection can happen to anyone and to empathize with those who are affected.

Classroom

  • Our large class sizes allow for physical distancing, so students will return to and work in their original classes.
  • Seating in class will be spread out. Student seats will be at least 1 meter apart.  
  • Students may choose their seat at the start of the day. That will remain as their seat for the rest of the day. Work with large materials can be done on the floor beside their seat.
  • Materials will be sanitized after every use.
  • Food Preparation activities will not be offered.
  • Students may bring materials that were sent home for use in class.
  • Students will bring in some items for personal use such as a towel (to be used as a floor mat) and stationery in a small bag. 
  • Snack will be packed in closed containers. Students will have snack at their individual tables.
  • Lunch will be served in the canteen. Students will be spread out and separation screens set up on the tables.

Common Areas

  • There will be limits to the number of people who are allowed to access common areas at any point in time.  
  • The common areas that will remain open include: gymnasium, soccer field, playground, garden, library.
  • The following areas will be closed: swimming pool and indoor playground.
  • There will be limited space for adults in the pick up area. We ask for your cooperation to not linger, but to come in time for pick up and allow teachers to bring your child to the car.

 

Cleanliness

  • The school will clean all areas more frequently and thoroughly. Classrooms will be cleaned at least twice daily. Classes used for enrichment activities (music, art) will be cleaned before and after each session. Common use areas will be cleaned more frequently. Buses are cleaned before and after each use.
  • Supplies for hand washing, including alcohol gel, will be available throughout the school. We prefer for students to wash hands with soap and water than alcohol gel and will make efforts to do so at school.

Preparing Your Child to Return to School

We are certain that students will be eager to return to school, meet their friends and teachers in person. It is equally important to help your child understand that the school experience will be different. Offering your child information upfront will help him / her cope with the changes that he / she will experience.  

You can help by sharing information about COVID-19 and the need to protect ourselves from the virus. This is the reason that we have to do things a bit differently at school. You can share the new arrangements as listed above.

Teachers will also communicate with your children. They are preparing photos of the new classroom and common area arrangements and a short video to welcome them back to school. The video will contain key messages related to the Health & Safety Measures. Some teachers may choose to give a live virtual tour of their classroom during one of their lessons this week.

We recommend the following additional action items

  • Work with your child to select face masks and face shields that they are happy to wear.
  • Practice wearing these items at home for an extended period of time.
  • Ensure that your child sleeps earlier and sleep more. Their sleep pattern may be disrupted during the Remote Learning period. Children will tire out at school with all the activities and they may face emotional challenges due to the new measures as well, so it is important to ensure they receive adequate rest to have the physical and mental strength to carry on.
  • Talk to your child about what they may experience before returning to school. Talk to your child about their experiences after they have come to school.  Listen for questions and address any concerns. Share any concerns with your child’s teachers.

What to Bring to School

  • Face masks: one mask that is worn + one spare mask in your child’s bag. It is best to choose a plain fabric mask that can be washed and reused. Masks should not have cartoon or distractive designs.
  • Face shield
  • Water bottle
  • Hat
  • Spare change of clothes (Toddler and Casa students)
  • Work towel: standard size bath towel for work (recommend 120 x 60 cm, bigger is ok as we can fold it). The towel needs to be plain (no patterns, cartoons or designs) and should be a light color (white, cream, etc.) because the child will lay Montessori materials on this towel. The towel will be taken home for wash on Fridays each week.
  • Stationery: Casa and Elementary students are asked to bring a small stationery pouch with the following: pencil, eraser, sharpener, pencil colors (12 colors is enough), small ruler (Elementary only). If child does not have these materials and would like to request the teachers to arrange for this, we are happy to and will charge the items to the student’s deposit.
  • Please be sure to label ALL items with your child’s name to reduce the risk of loss or mix up.

In the case that a student loses both face masks while at school, the school will offer the student a spare face mask for the rest of the day.

For your child’s safety we ask children to not bring hand sanitizers to school. Hand sanitizers are chemicals and they come in a variety of attractive packaging which might be misconstrued as something else and used in an inappropriate way.

Measures for Suspected Cases

Anyone who is suspected of having COVID-19 will be isolated in a separate Nurse Room. Parents will be called to pick up the student to be taken to see the doctor. The school will inform the Ministry of Public Health and will stay in contact with the family for updates.

If the suspected case is tested positive for COVID-19, the person affected will have to stay isolated for at least 14 days and return only after full recovery.  The person affected will have to show a certificate of good health issued by a hospital to return to school.

The school may close the classroom or entire floor or entire school for a period of time after the confirmation that a member of the community is tested positive for COVID-19.
