Wash your hands frequently
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
Maintain social distancing
Maintain an appropriate distance between yourself and anyone else.
Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early
Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call 444 immediately. Follow the directions of the health authorities.
Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
By impacting the Early Years of a child, we can create a movement in their minds which can build strong foundations to enhance their futures. We believe our students must be provided with opportunity and encouragement to use their skills in a range of situations and be supported in developing the confidence to grow academically, emotionally and socially.
Modern Knowledge Schools continue to build upon and refine our foundation of good work and many worthwhile traditions, with none being more important than continuing to build upon our tradition of MKS: Making Kids Successful. Our mission? Simply put: Respectful, Responsible, Global Minded, Lifelong Learners.
At the Middle School, students learn in environments that are Rigorous, Relevant, and Relational. MKS wants students to come to school ready to learn, ready to connect the relevance of their learning and ready to establish a good working relationship with all of their teachers.
Our academic programs provide five major pathways for students. The programs prepare the students for the engineering field, the medical field, the business field, or a liberal arts focus. We also provide an excellent I.B. Program that prepares our students for the university and the future.
