Dear Parents,

Welcome to the El Alsson family. We hope your children enjoy their school life just as the 38 graduating classes who preceded them :). El Alsson is very excited to have them onboard and is honoured for their valuable addition to our community.

This document is to clarify information which may be confusing to you as a newcomer and to provide answers to common questions. The Parents’ section of the website has important information. Please read it.

You will receive more specific details related to your child’s upcoming school year through newcomer orientations, parent meetings, emails, handbooks, newsletters and our school website. Please try to check the website frequently, especially the home page section of Announcements, letters, news and featured events and the school calendar which is continuously being updated.

What about the First Day of School?

Every year, we announce the school entry schedule on the calendar and announcements section of the website in August. Students in Grades 2-12 and Years 3-13  start school on Monday September 2nd.   Early Years (EY) and Early Childhood (EC) have their first days staggered through the remainder of the week as per information on our website.  Preschool (PS), Pre-K (PK), FS1 and FS2 children have a staggered entry.  Parents of these children will receive email or sms informing them of which day and group your child has been assigned to for his/her first day.

However, this was the case in normal previous school years. Since this year is different with Covid 19 and all the different measures all schools and businesses are taking, Please refer to the information below on details:
