10April2018: IPS & Arab League Summit

Dear IPS Community,


We have received a number of inquiries related to possible school closure as a result of the Arab League Summit hosted here in the Eastern Province. Throughout the next few days, please account for disrupted traffic patterns - LEAVE EARLIER - plan for traffic slow-downs!


IPS does NOT plan to close the school campus UNLESS required by the Ministry of Education.  We have no updates from the Ministry of Education as of now. There are a million ‘rumors’; we’ll use official sources of information on which to base decisions.


IF we close, we will notify ALL families via email and we will conduct “virtual school” for any/all day(s) of closure.  Teachers will use Google Classroom and/or email to work with children during any/all closure days - we hope with this to CONTINUE THE LEARNING!
