As a reminder, Orientation for new students is this Wednesday April 1st (Wednesday) at 14:00. This will be an opportunity for new students to learn how online lessons are held during this time. Our school will be utilizing Google Classroom and ZOOM. You can use a computer, tablet or your smart phone to set up an account. We will be going through important information and materials as well as basic procedures for your enrollment.
As a measure of social distancing, our plans are to hold the first 7 lessons online, April 2nd – April 10th. Please log in through Google Classroom / ZOOM as explained in the previous emails. Note: There is the possibility we may need to extend this date in response to the spread and instructions/ updates from Immigration.
Again, we thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we manage under this global pandemic.
