AIS West - May 2021
Hello AIS West Middle School Community,
We hope this email finds you well in the final weeks of the holy month of Ramadan. We would also like to wish a Happy Coptic Easter to everyone who celebrates.
We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we have been instructed to move students back online for the remainder of Ramadan due to increasing COVID19 cases in the community. Students will attend classes these next two weeks over Zoom (see schedule below).
As of today, we plan on returning to the hybrid schedule follow Eid. Please continue to check your email as changes will be determined based on COVID19 numbers and directives from the Ministry of Education.
Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns at any time. We are here for each other during this difficult time. Please take a moment to read the May teaching and learning summaries below. It is quite remarkable what our teachers and students are accomplishing despite the challenges we have been presented with this year.
Your partners in education,
Secondary School Principal
