Student Surveys Grades 3-12

Hello Students in Grades 3-12,

Our annual student surveys will be administered by your teachers beginning this week. This is an important opportunity for you to give your teachers honest, anonymous, and confidential feedback on your classroom experience. It’s also a chance to flex student voice in your learning! In other words, each survey is important, so give them you best effort (yes, even if you end up doing more than one!). Thanks!

Students…Break Tomorrow

Hello Superstar Students,

Tomorrow’s Break will last from 10:05am-10:30am. An FYI that the football pitch, bamboo forest, and gaming room will be closed. Thanks for your help with this. Also, a reminder that school finishes at 11:00am tomorrow as well.


The schedule is here as a reminder. Have a great day!

Tomorrow’s Schedule Update

Hello All,

A slight adjustment has been made to tomorrow’s schedule out of respect for the annual anniversary of the Nanjing Massacre. The plan is to delay the break until approximately 10:05am, after the symbolic air raid siren at 10:01am concludes. Please keep students in class until the siren finishes sounding. At that point students are welcome to go to break and teachers are invited to the staff lounge for some last-school-day-of-2019 treats. Our leadership team will cover break-time teaching.

Also of note is that the only NIS “bells” that will sound tomorrow should be the 7:55am “get to class!” bell and the 11:00am dismissal. Beyond that it will be up to all of us to help students move between Homerooms/Advisories, assemblies, and Break based upon the schedule.

Many thanks for your efforts!

Student Access to Campus Reminder

Students… Please take a look at this helpful document as a reminder of when you can and cannot be present on the NIS campus.

Teachers… Please take a look at this helpful document as a way to help remind our students of when they can and cannot be present on the NIS campus.

Spoiler alert… It’s all the same helpful document. Happy Tuesday!

AQI Guidelines

A reminder that our AQI guidelines are located here, in the Digital Hub. These are based on US Environmental Protection Agency recommendations, as well as guidelines used by international schools in Shanghai and Suzhou. Though we endeavor to communicate the status of break and lunch recess in a timely fashion, please feel empowered to act based on the AQI readings on the screens in the Library Foyer and from the Air Matters app, Qixia reading. A reminder that our internal air quality at NIS is excellent. These readings can be seen on sensors around the school and are published frequently in the daily bulletin. We can help keep these indoor levels low by closing outside doors and windows. Please see Kasson with any questions.
