NEW SAFETY PAPERWORK REQUIRED AFTER CNY

The safety and wellbeing of our students and community members is a priority for us. In order to maintain the good health our community has enjoyed, we recommend all families avoid travelling as much as possible. Beginning February 22, the first day back from Chinese New Year holiday, we will require all students to turn in two forms. This is a similar process to how we began the school year. The forms are noted below:

  1. HEALTH PASS. The health pass is a form where you'll track your child's temperature for 14 days, from February 8-21.
  2. PROMISE CERTIFICATE. This certificate asks information about whether or not your family traveled outside of Wuhan during the break. If you have travelled out of Wuhan, we’ll need the dates and locations listed.

These forms will be available on our website soon, allowing you plenty of time to prepare. No action is needed from you now; we are simply letting you know what is to come.

Thank you for your cooperation and help in keeping the WYIS community safe and healthy.
