School is closed today as Singapore votes. Have a wonderful 3 day weekend!
Many parents and students have questions about the school's response to the haze caused by forest fires in Indonesia. In order to ensure the safety of our students on campus and have consistency to our approach to environmental conditions, ISS developed a haze policy several years ago. Please note the following important information taken from our haze policy.
If the 3 hour PSI index on the Paterson Campus is below 100:
- All activities proceed as normal
If the 3 hour PSI index on the Paterson Campus is between 100-200:
- Students will not be able to participate in physical activities during break times.
- Outdoor ECA's will be cancelled
- Outdoor PE classes will be moved inside
- Outdoor field trips will be postponed or cancelled
If the 3 hour PSI index on the Paterson Campus is between 201-300:
- All physical activities, both indoor and outdoor, will be suspended.
If the 3 hour PSI index on the Paterson Campus is above 300:
