     3. Requests:
     ▲ For children’s safety, when dropping off your child please make sure your child is left with his/her teacher. We are busy in the morning during reception, so if you need to talk to the nurses or teachers about your child’s special conditions (health and behavior), please make it BRIEF (or you may schedule another time for a talk with our teacher about your child). If it is anything special, talk to the principal directly.
     ▲ Be on time for drop-off & pick-up. We request no pick-up during class, lunch, and/or sleep time so as not to disturb children’s routine school life. If you have to be early or late for delivery, please call us. For pick-up, please show your card, or the pass issued for non-holidays and non-pickup time. If you have asked someone else to pick up your child, this trustee must bear your letter of authorization, the pick-up card, and his/her own ID card.

III. Healthcare and Security
     1. Morning Body-Check: We both teach and care. Kindly cooperate for healthcare and disease-prevention. To instill in your child with good habits for personal hygiene, please go through the body-check each morning. If he/she has a fever at 37.5℃ or is contagious please leave him/her at home for family care to prevent other children from becoming contaminated. Please tell our nurse or the teacher if your child feels sick.
     2. Medication taken at School: Hand in personal prescriptions to our nurse, with doctor’s suggestions and prescription attached. The nurse will administer the medicine to your child.
     3. Infectious Disease: If your child has had an infectious disease, before they can return to school they must obtain a note from a doctor stating that they are free of the disease and the incubation period has passed.
     4. Attention: Check your child’s personal belongings before going to school each day. Do not bring any dangerous or valuable articles, such as: sticks, knives, beads, coins, cash or jewelry to school. If your child does the school will not be responsible for loss.

IV. Family-School Contact
     1. Teachers and parents should respect, trust, and cooperate with each other, and set examples for imitation to co-provide the children with a harmonious living and learning environment. It is our duty to educate the children unbiased, so don’t give gifts or cash to our teachers; and we absolutely forbid our teachers to accept gifts or favors from parents. Teachers are expected to say NO in every case and inform the principal for us to follow up seriously. If you have anything to complain about to our teacher, please be reasonably calm and don’t lose your temper in front of the children or other parents.
     2. Parent to parent: we always stress child to child friendships, but children fighting, such as slapping or scratching, is unavoidable. If this happens, don’t accuse the parent or the child him/herself face-to-face. This is negative to children’s mental development and parent-parent relationships. Turn to our teachers or principal for help.
     3. Activity participation. We welcome you to participate in our activities, such as Open House, speeches for parents, and parent conferences; but we kindly ask you to cooperate by filling out the forms in the manual of family-school contact.
     4. Family cooperation. Please instill good behavioral habits in your child/children, teach them to respect adults, be polite to peers, learn to value things, and develop a sense of environmental protection. We need your cooperation for your child’s education.
