Although the ISK campus was not completely submerged, the ISK management is deeply saddened to inform parents that it suffered extensive flood damages in the ground floor classrooms and offices as well as all transportation units.
Despite the campus being hit by the flood and the fact that many of our staff have been gravely affected by the calamity that devastated our valley, the ISK school administration mustered all available resources to speed up the restoration process in the school.
Although the school management wishes to reopen and go back to our normal routine as soon as possible, we can only do so after:
(1) the school completes the laborious and requisite process of cleaning and disinfecting the entire campus in accordance with international standards of health and safety
(2) PWD inspection
(3) the school receives the corollary permission from the government to resume our operations.
Even though ISK has set a tentative date of reopening on the 13th of October 2014, we are not among those who have joined the rat race—reopening mainly as a publicity stunt, failing health and safety standards after being hit by flood, and risking lives of children. We believe that —naturally— the top-most priority of both schools and parents is the health and safety of children.
At the same time, ISK is doing its utmost to further the academic progress and achievement of students amidst these uncertain and trying times. The ISK Learning Programs Department will be providing an Online Educational Program for its students which will start on the 30th of September 2014 and will continue until we reopen. By following the list of home learning tasks or downloading the worksheets and viewing the learning videos which will be provided by the school online, parents or guardians will be able to help their children complete the syllabi of the current school year in the safety of their own homes at least for the time being. Students who belong to class sections/levels with pending semestral assessments will also be able to review and prepare using the online guidelines.
The school will be releasing students’ books according to the schedule provided below. Note that UKG-A, Grade 2, Grade 3, and Grade 4 books have suffered damages which includes student notebooks, text books, test papers, important files, grooming kits and other materials which are no longer salvageable and can pose potential health risks if not disposed of. Only the undamaged books will be released to parents. For the damaged books, the school will be providing an e-copy of the chapters that are relevant to the pending assessments as well as the last semester of this school year.
Parents are requested to register in our school website to access the Online Educational Program. We will be informing parents of the schedule and procedures for online registration on the 30th of September 2014.
