Mashrek International School Calendar for the 2020/2021 Scholastic Year: 

 

Our school will strictly abide by the guidance of the Ministry of Education and the Jordanian government.

We will conduct full sanitization in every section and department within the school, including classrooms, bathrooms and common areas.

According to Defense Order No.11, we are strictly obliged to abide by the rules and regulations of health and safety by wearing masks and maintaining a distance between ourselves and others.

There will be breaks; we have organized it in a way that we maintain social distancing based on the available spaces we have.

According to the Ministry of Education, no extracurricular activities or Physical and Health Education sports will take place.

Regarding online learning, please be assured that we reflected on our practices from last semester and many amendments and modifications have been made to ensure that if learning continues online, all students will benefit from it to the maximum. The number of students will not be the same and less per session. In case we are obliged to implement virtual learning, all parents will be informed of the logistics and overall plan.

As for the health measures taken by the school to ensure a safe environment for the students, our Safety and Security Committee as well as the COVID-19 Task Force have developed guides for all the safety measurements. The school’s Support Staff have been trained on complete sanitization, while wearing protective face masks and social distancing is mandatory. Entry and departure of students have been distributed to avoid bottleneck and crowds, drop off and pick up by parents will be through different gates without leaving their vehicles.

Yes, the cafeteria will be selling sandwiches, salads and other items; however all items will be properly sealed by the supplier. Staff are not allowed to open the seal for any reason whatsoever, such as: heating, adding vegetables or sauces. If opened, it should not be sold.

We offer a late supervision service, during which the students will be engaged in some activities, playtime and have a snack.

During the first week and until students feel settled, we will allow one parent to escort their child to their homeroom at an assigned time.

Students will be divided into groups with a homeroom teacher. 
Student-teacher ratio during instruction is 1:13
Student-teacher ratio during learning experiences is 1:6

We will be abiding by the Ministry of Education's guidelines that all sports events and activities will be postponed until further notice.

We will be abiding by the Ministry of Education's guidelines that all students are required to wear face masks.

We will abide by the Ministry of Education's regulations that there is no need to test teachers for COVID-19 regularly.

As was announced by the MOE, all employees must have the application available on their phones as well as any parent(s) entering the school.

The hours will be age appropriate; 2 and a half hours per day but spread out into chunks.

Face-to-Face: A traditional school experience where students attend school in person 5 days a week. Students interact with teachers and peers in what our vision of learning describes as ‘supportive environments rich in engagement and social interaction'.

Blended Model: This learning model combines online learning assigned weeks/days, along with face-to-face learning during other weeks.

Distance Learning Model: Students attend school virtually through lessons, activities and projects. Students collaborate online but not in the same frequency as a regular school experience.
