Welcome to our Remote Learning pages. Although our school is closed temporarily, the learning at ISH will continue to take place. In the coming weeks, our teachers and staff will engage our students with learning experiences that continue the planned learning programme and that help students stay in touch with each other and their teachers.
Please follow the links below for information specific to each section of the school.
- Schooling is always a partnership. In an online remote learning environment this partnership becomes the champion of learning.
- Over the course of this remote learning time period, our faculty will partner with parents to engage students in experiences that stretch their understanding and expand how they approach new learning.
- Teachers will continue to carry forward their instrumental role in guiding, supporting, and challenging students to take on new responsibilities and to become excited about new learning. Our families will have options and sources for flexibility that will give them choice and ownership as the remote learning experience progresses. Teachers will communicate with parents through Managebac and will use Seesaw, along with other online subscriptions, to engage students in rich learning tasks.
A continuity of learning plan or education continuity plan for emergency learning and teaching is slightly different. It is focused on the transitions of students from one type of learning to another as their learning context rapidly changes. Continuity of learning plans do not only involve the technologies the school will use to continue teaching, but also considers how the students will return to campus after the emergency ends.

In extreme circumstances like an impromptu closure, it’s tempting for teachers to upload worksheets for students to complete and return. But online learning during a closure – especially during extended closures – should be at least as engaging as the classroom experience (if not more) or students will suffer.
