* In Phase 3, we are required to await confirmation from the Ministry, that we can re-open for all students. If this is not permitted, then we will offer either a hybrid learning model as in Phase 2 with some Zoom sessions or revert to 100% online learning if instructed to do so.

Please note that during Phase 1, the Ministry has instructed schools to offer 1 day, for each group of students, for re-Introduction to school and induction into the new Health & Safety requirements and operational procedures. Therefore, each group of students will attend only on the one dayindicated above. On the other 2 days, they should stay at home with online learning. If your child cannot attend on the allocated day they CANNOT swap for another day as teachers will not be available.

During Phase 2, the purpose is to revise what was learned during the lockdown and to identify and address any gaps in learning. Students attend school either from 6th -10thSeptember or 13th-17th September as indicated above. We will send the VLE timetable in due course.

NB :We cannot change any of the above arrangements for individual families as this would cause problems with the provision of online and face 2 face learning which happens simultaneously.

The MoEHE has stated that all schools must impress upon parents the necessity to attend school from the start of the new term as per the arrangements above.

If students are late for school, i.e. arrive after 7.30, they must report to Reception, which is accessible via Gate 2.

Parents of Primary children sign their child/ren in the Late Book and Secondary children sign themselves in. Our Reception staff will then ensure that the class register is updated and they are marked as Present.

If a student is marked as Absent (without a reason provided for their absence) an SMS will be sent to parents as part of our safeguarding process. Please reply by email to reception@oryxschool.qa providing the reason for absence. This will then be updated on our daily attendance system.
