On Thursday, March 12th at 8 pm, President Macron announced the official closing of all schools in France, as of Monday, March 16th, in a national effort against the rapid progression of CODIV-19 virus. Therefore, our school, despite our best efforts these past two weeks to protect our community, is forced to close its doors temporarily.
While we have all been preparing for this possibility, it is indeed unprecedented and will require a period of adaptation for all of us. While the school campus is officially closed, the teachers and administration remain available via email and telephone to answer your questions.
Our main focus at this time is to ensure the safety of all of our community and provide ongoing learning support to our students as well as direct communication with our parents.
As each age of learning requires different needs and academic concerns, we have prepared below an overview of the continued education program by age/class.
- Primary School – Continued Learning
- 6ème/5ème/4ème – Continued Learning
- 3eme 2nde Pre IB Continued Learning
- 1ère / Tle IB – Continued Learning
If you have any questions about these guidelines or how it is functioning, please contact your child’s Academic Director, who is available by email to answer your questions and concerns.
Below you will find a list of key staff members should you need help or advice.
Below we will continue to share and update a list of online resources and activities for your children. We highly recommend that our students also partake in at least 30-60 minutes of physical activity per day. This will keep them active and in positive spirits despite the physical absence of their friends and the lack of social contact permitted.
