According to the latest action plan from the Beijing Education Bureau regarding air pollution, if the forecasted alert level is between 301-500 for three consecutive days, then 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 while they remain at home. This will be done via the school’s chosen online learning platforms. Teachers will provide guidance on how to engage with online learning to maximum effect.
