Learning During the Pandemic

To support distance learning we have incorporated the following educational applications, platforms and resources into our curriculum;

The Board of Governors, advised by the COVID-19 Task Force, has determined to open campus as of Tuesday, 16 February. The situation is reviewed and assessed on a regular basis. The Board of Governors is in frequent contact with the Ministry of Health, Zambia National Public Health Institute, local health officials, officials from the CDC and others to ensure that health guidelines are adhered to on campus. The Board regularly communicates updates to parents.  
 

Our students and staff continue to exercise COVID-19 safety practices such as wearing masks, physical distancing, and frequent cleaning of hands, equipment, and learning spaces.
