Tonight the Ministry of Education announced that all schools in Saudi Arabia will temporarily close as of Monday, March 9, 2020, as a precautionary measure against the coronavirus (Ministry of Education reference #79305).
The recommendation came from health authorities in order to ensure the safety and well-being of students and educational staff.
There will be no classes in all ISG schools starting tomorrow, March 9. Virtual school for students will begin on Tuesday, March 10, which will provide teachers with a preparation day for their lessons in the days ahead.
Student accounts will work remotely during the school closure period and will continue to process receipts, seat deposits and enrollment contracts. All administrators will also be working online and will be available through email.
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated. We remind you that the school launched a webpage on COVID-19 to provide information and resources to the community.
Thank you for your cooperation and support during this time.
