Increased Police Presence Expected on Nam Long Shan and Shun Wan Roads
Thank you to all our families who collaborated with the school to help our community reduce traffic congestion on Nam Long Shan Road. As our neighbouring schools resumed classes today, we anticipate this will greatly impact traffic flow and are expecting a heavier police presence along Nam Long Shan and Shun Wan Roads. Police will ticket any private vehicles stopped/parked in these areas.
A reminder that private vehicles, including taxis and Ubers, are not permitted to stop, park, drop off or pick up students along Nam Long Shan Road during school hours. Drivers who continue to circumvent this will have their license plates recorded before being moved on. As responsible community members, we must be respectful and considerate of our neighbours. Do not attempt to park, stop, drop off, or pick up students, or make U-turns in private access points and drive-ways. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
Shuttle Bus Service
The school operates a free shuttle bus service for students to/from the Wong Chuk Hang MTR station every school day as follows:
7:25am for Prep to Grade 5 students
8:20am for Grade 6-12 students
In the afternoon, shuttle buses will arrive at WCH at:
2:35pm for Lower School (departs school at 2:30pm from the 7/F) (Prep to Grade 3 students must ride with an older sibling, cousin, older friend)
4:15pm for Upper School (departs school at 4:10pm from the 7/F)
Please note the afternoon times are estimates and will be amended depending on traffic conditions. Students MUST pre-register to use the shuttle bus service via the KCM website. Take a moment to learn more about our bussing programme.
Daily Temperature Check in Parent Portal
In accordance with EDB/CHP guidelines, parents are asked to enter their child’s temperature in the Parent Portal each day before they depart to school. Here are some instructions on how to do this for our new families. Click here to see how to add the Parent Portal shortcut to your iPhone. Thank you for your cooperation.
Reporting Student Absences in Parent Portal
If your child will be absent from school, please let the school know via the absence form in the Parent Portal. Parents can access the Parent Portal via the link on the top right corner of the school website or the CDNIS app. We would appreciate if parents could inform the school of their child's absence before 8am (Lower School) and 9am (Upper School).

Attention Returning Students: Student ID Card
CDNIS issues 2-layer student cards. The thicker smart card is used for swiping for attendance, printing and borrowing books from the library and is used year after year. The thinner "top layer" is a sticker which is replaced annually. Returning students should remove the "2020/2021" top layer and replace it with the new top layer being distributed now for the 2021/2022 school year.
Changing School Buses in the PM
Prep to Grade 12 students registered for the school bus service may switch buses to accommodate afterschool activities. Parents must fill in CDNIS 2021/2022 - Dismissal Bus Change Request Form. Each bus change requires one form.
School Bus Service
For any families who still need to register for the school bus service, please do so via the KCM website.

Timberwolves: Tryouts begin this week
The Timberwolves tryouts begin on Tuesday, August 24. Season 1 sports include volleyball, football, cross country, golf, equestrian, netball, sailing/rowing and skateboarding. As some practices run from 7:15am-8:15am, the school is providing a Sports Shuttle from the WCH MTR Exit A2 departing at 7:05am Tuesday to Friday. Registered US bus students should not take LS buses as there is no guarantee buses will arrive in time for 7:15am practices. Students travelling by private vehicle, taxi or Uber must still use the Sports Shuttle as students are not allowed to be dropped off at school for morning practices. Details including tryout information, the compulsory participation and agreement form and practice times can be found on the Timberwolves website.

Dress Down Day: First DDD of the Year!
The first Dress Down Day of the year will take place this Friday, August 27. There is no theme and no donation will be collected during the first DDD of the year. Normally, students pay $20 to take part in the DDD with money going to various charities selected by the students.
Student Cards: Lost Cards
All students are required to tap their student card when they enter/exit the campus. New students will be issued a card in the coming days while returning students may use their old cards. If your child has lost their card, please fill in the Student Identity Card Replacement Form (also available behind the Parent Portal under "School Documents"). The replacement cost of the Student Identity Card is $65 and we ask you to deliver this in cash. Lower School students may pass the payment to their homeroom teacher and Upper School students may pass the payment to the main office. New cards take approximately one week to process.
The 2020/2021 yearbook will be handed out to students who ordered them via their homerooms on Friday, August 27. The online version is available behind the Parent Portal.
