School Reopening

Dear AISB-Hope International Parent Community, 

I would like you to know that we are planning to reopen school from June 8th until June 11th from 8:05 until 12:00 for grades 6 through 12. And we are inviting our grade 4 and 5 students on June 11th, the final day of school for the 2019-20 school year. As I shared in the previous townhall meetings on Thursday, if the government allowed for more grade levels to return to our school, we would consider reopening our school. Our goal in reopening the school is to give our students that are in Beijing a chance to come together in order to finish strong in the 2019-20 school year. 

We look forward to continuing to communicate with you about the reopening of our school. Our Principal, Mrs. Johnson, will be contacting you with information about how we plan to keep your daughter/son safe as they return to school, and she will also share what the schedule will look like for the half day of school throughout the week. The bus service will run for that week, and we will share with you what your child should bring for a snack for the mid morning at our school. There will be no lunch served for students on these days coming back to school. It is also important to note that parents and visitors will not be allowed on campus and that this will be strictly enforced. 

Finally, we look forward to seeing your child back in our hallways. Below is a overview and snapshot of our plans with your child(ren) during this week. 

Very Sincerely, Mr. Eplin
Head of School, AISB-Hope International


  • The HIS online program will remain in place for all students, and students returning to campus will have lessons tailored to meet their social/emotional needs.
  • Students will be supervised by an HIS teacher, and maybe not by their regular subject teacher.
  • The school day begins as normal at 8:05 and students will report directly to the lunchroom upon arrival. (per inspection requirements…this could be submitted to change) 
  • The school day will be shortened with the dismissal of students at 12:00, (noon) and students will continue learning from home in the afternoon.
  • Students who are able to return to school will be able to receive support, re-connect with peers, and engage in a recreation/physical activity with peers every day for this week. 
  • Support for students who are unable to return for various reasons will continue through our HIS online learning platform for the remainder of the school year.
  • If students are returning to campus, the school will collect information on travel history and health. We will ask our parents to partner with us to make sure that information sent home and requested from home is swiftly responded to for our planning purposes.
