BAIS Clinic Update

Dear All, 

As a reminder, in the BAIS parent student handbook on pages 12 and 13 (contagious diseases and determining Illness), students will be required to be absent and sent home if any of the symptoms/diseases listed are present.

The following diseases are contagious, and students (and families) will be required to be absent:

  • Covid-19
  • Chicken Pox
  • Head Lice
  • Viral Hepatitis A
  • Impetigo
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella-German Measles
  • Ringworm
  • Scabies
  • Scarlet Fever
  • Whooping Cough
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eyes)

Students are required to be sent home immediately if they have these symptoms and symptoms must be absent from the child for at least 24 hours before returning to school:

  • just vomited
  • fever over 38 degrees C
  • moderate to severe diarrhea
  • draining skin rash or lesion
  • head lice
  • pink eye
  • grossly productive cough
  • Covid-19 symptoms (similar to many of the above)  

For students who experience seasonal allergies, they may continue to attend classes, but if they experience any changes in symptoms, they must seek an assessment by a healthcare provider. As we are living in times of much medical alarm and uncertainty, BAIS asks that students with seasonal allergies provide a doctor’s note indicating these symptoms are non-communicable.

The purpose of this policy is to prevent the spread of illnesses to the other students. Please help us by reminding your students to:

  • Cover their mouth (with their arm) when they cough and sneeze
  • Wash hands or use antiseptic gel frequently
  • Practice physical distancing from others
  • Get at least 8 hours of sleep nightly
  • Eat well-balanced meals with fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Take a multivitamin daily

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Simon Fraser University – Coming to BAIS on Thursday, September 29th at 11:10AM

For school pictures, do not wear your PE t-shirt. If your student has PE on Tuesday, they should wear a nicer shirt for the picture and bring their PE shirt to school to change into later.




SEW Announcement

SEW is just around the corner!

This year we are partnering with the Free & Safe Indonesia Foundation for a “Rice-ing Together”. We are asking BAIS students to donate rice and other non-perishable foods on the first day of SEW, October 5. StuCo will have collection boxes set up in the lobby. These food donations will be used to feed many families and kids through the FSI ministries.
