From the Headmaster: Update on School Opening

Dear Brent Families,

As we enter the month of July we want to give you some updates on the opening of the 2021-2022 school year so that you can plan accordingly.

The first day of classes will remain August 16, as previously scheduled. As vaccines become more available we are able to begin visualizing the end of the pandemic, but we still anticipate the need for flexibility in coming months as the Philippines ramps up their vaccination program.

Taking into consideration current government mandates and anticipating the timeline of our own vaccine deliveries, we think it is wise to start the year online with a four-week transition period. We will target mid-September for a return to in-person classes, pending government approval.

As always, Brent will remain nimble and adjust as circumstances change. We are prepared both for online education and for returning safely to in-person instruction. We will continue to provide our students with the best education possible regardless of changing circumstances.

Take care and God bless.

Sincerely,
Jason Atkins
Headmaster

From the Headmaster: End of Year Calendar Adjustments

Dear Brent Family,

As announced earlier, we will be finishing the year via distance learning. Recent increases in COVID numbers and corresponding quarantine requirements have now made it clear that any planned year-end assemblies will also need to be held online. Much like last year, not holding these year-end events in person allows the semester to conclude earlier without losing instructional time. Please note the following dates:

Upper School:
Exams End: May 19
Make up Exams: May 20
Baccalaureate: May 20
Graduation: Friday, May 21 at 5:00pm

Middle School:
Last Day of Class: May 20
Moving Up Day: May 21

Lower School:
(N-K) Last Day of Class and Moving Up: May 19
(1-5) Last Day of Class and Moving Up: May 21

Clearance: May 17-21
Report Cards Released: May 26

Events not listed above will be conveyed by individual school levels.

Please gather all borrowed materials for return to the school and arrange to clear any outstanding balances during the clearance period to insure report cards and transcripts can be released in a timely fashion.

As always, your understanding and flexibility are appreciated. Our students have been producing remarkable quality work this year. Most recently, the IB Art exhibit was exceptional, and I am looking forward to our Spring Concert. Under challenging circumstances our students continue to shine. They are a credit to the school, their families and themselves.

Sincerely,
Jason Atkins
Headmaster
