A letter from the Principal
Dear ICE Families,
You may well have already seen the announcement through the media about the extension of Distance Learning. This is clearly the right move given the circumstances, as, above all, our health and the safety of our families is paramount.
Initially, this news will create more questions than answers.
Over the next few days, the entire team will be mobilized to find adjustments to the E-Learning as it exists and to keep it on going until the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
I will respond to you all and we will come together to continue to deliver on our continued promise to your children.
In kindergarten, to simplify the daily operation and to join the general establishment function:
- – to distinguish emails from the school from your personal emails, you will be given a specific email address for your child.
- – also, the educational steps and tools will be placed on Google Classroom.
- – finally, you can follow the Google calendar (timetable) for your child (as per the elementary).
It is important for all students to log in with their personal email address (@ icedubai.org) in order to access the Google Calendar and Classroom.
The lessons, the normality of the timetable and the interaction with teachers is even more important to our children now so please keep going with your support and positivity.
We will do everything in our power to continue making home learning the best educational and social experience possible while we are away from our school. But this situation is not ideal and requires that each parent plays his educational role of benevolence towards his teacher, of understanding these digital tools therefore develops pupil autonomy.
The feedback you provide allows us to organize a constantly evolving and constantly improving the learning experience.
Our school is a very special place to be and we all miss the daily interactions with our ICE Families. Until the time that we can be together again, please continue to look out for each other and look after your families. Your teachers, myself and ICE staff are here to support wherever possible.
Now, more than ever, your support is keeping our ICE community together in these challenging circumstances.
Once the implications are clearer and any further steps are planned, I will communicate these to you. Until then, thank you again for everything you are doing – it is truly appreciated.
Please enjoy your day with the children. We will be fine and together we will be amazing.
