News Update 24 February 2021:
Our students in Early Learning, Grades 1 - 5 and Grades 10 - 12 are (thankfully) back on campus with classes running on modified timetables. We are delighted to have them back. Grades 6 - 9 continue learning from home via our online educational platforms and in accordance with parameters set out by NRW educational authorities. BIS offers emergency care for those families with an urgent need for childcare. A comprehensive range of parent and supplementary meetings continue to take place virtually. They are recorded and archived for those parents who could not attend at a specific time.
The German federal government and state authorities are due to meet the week of 8 March to discuss further proceedings and their impacts on schools. Our timetables and grade levels back on campus may chance accordingly. Stay tuned for more!
Parent and Staff Information: Information detailing the specifics of school resumption in each section of the school can be found in the community login section of the website.
