We are looking forward to welcoming our students back to school

School Re-opening Plans

Dear‌ ‌Nibras‌ ‌International‌ ‌School‌ ‌Community,‌ ‌ ‌

I am thankful for the warm welcome‌ ‌I‌ ‌have‌ ‌already‌ ‌received‌ ‌from‌ ‌the‌ ‌school‌ ‌ community. ‌ ‌I‌ ‌am‌ ‌excited‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌start‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌2020‌ ‌-2021‌ ‌school‌ ‌year‌ ‌and‌ ‌I‌ ‌am‌ ‌looking‌ ‌forward‌ ‌to‌ ‌meeting‌ ‌everyone‌ ‌in‌ ‌person. ‌ ‌

Before‌ ‌my‌ ‌arrival‌ ‌in‌ ‌Dubai, ‌ ‌I‌ ‌had‌ ‌the‌ ‌opportunity‌ ‌to‌ ‌go‌ ‌through‌ ‌a‌ ‌successful‌ ‌ COVID-19‌ ‌re-opening‌ ‌at‌ ‌my‌ ‌last‌ ‌international‌ ‌school. ‌ ‌Following‌ ‌the‌ ‌strict‌ ‌local‌ ‌guidelines‌ ‌of‌ ‌that‌ ‌country, ‌we‌ ‌safely‌ ‌welcomed‌ ‌all‌ ‌of‌ ‌our‌ ‌students‌ ‌back‌ ‌to‌ ‌school. ‌ ‌

My‌ ‌experience‌ ‌there, ‌‌alongside‌ ‌the‌ ‌local‌ ‌guidance‌ ‌and‌ ‌best‌ ‌practice‌ ‌from‌ ‌ISP‌ ‌schools‌ ‌around‌ ‌the‌ ‌world, ‌‌means‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌ready‌ ‌to‌ ‌welcome‌ ‌our‌ ‌NIS‌ ‌families‌ ‌back‌ ‌to‌ ‌a‌ ‌safe‌ ‌and‌ ‌secure‌ ‌environment. ‌ Our‌ ‌team‌ ‌has‌ ‌been‌ ‌working‌ ‌diligently‌ ‌to‌ ‌develop‌ ‌our‌ ‌flexible‌ ‌educational‌ ‌plans‌ ‌and‌ ‌reconfiguring‌ ‌our‌ ‌school‌ ‌building‌ ‌so‌ ‌that‌ ‌we‌ ‌can‌ ‌have‌ ‌almost‌ ‌everyone‌ ‌back‌ ‌to‌ ‌school. ‌ ‌We‌ ‌have‌ ‌planned‌ ‌for‌ ‌a‌ ‌few‌ ‌flexible‌ ‌educational‌ ‌options, so‌ ‌that‌ ‌we‌ ‌can‌ ‌provide‌ ‌our‌ ‌families‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌option‌ ‌that‌ ‌best‌ ‌suit‌ ‌them.  ‌

Let’s‌ ‌have‌ ‌an‌ ‌AMAZING‌ ‌start‌ ‌to‌ ‌our‌ ‌new‌ ‌school‌ ‌year!‌ ‌ ‌

Respectfully,‌ ‌ ‌

Dr.‌ ‌Jay‌ ‌B.‌ ‌Teston‌, Principal‌ ‌
