Let's look at some facts of Hwangsa (Yellow

Dust). This article is from asiasociety.org.The

Asia Society is a non-profit organization that

focuses on educating the world about Asia.

Originating in the deserts of Northern China

and Mongolia, Yellow Dust is whisked into the

atmosphere by strong winds and carried to

the Korean Peninsula via the jet stream. Other

than reduced visibility, when the dust arrives it

brings along industrial pollutants (like

pesticides), viruses, fungi, bacteria, and even

heavy metals, none of which are good for

respiratory health.

Health Risks: When Yellow Dust reaches an

unhealthy concentration, around 400

micrograms/cubic meter, people are warned

to limit their outdoor activity, especially in

regards to heavy exercise and sports. Healthy

people can develop sore throats and dry

eyes, and children, the elderly, and people

with previous respiratory health conditions are

advised to remain indoors. In some cases the

concentration of Yellow Dust will exceed 800

micrograms/cubic meter, whereupon schools

will be closed, outdoor events cancelled and

a general warning issued to stay indoors

unless going outside is absolutely necessary.

RIS has Air-pollution policy, and we limit

children's outdoor activities when Fine Dust or

Yellow Dust level is high.

Future Classrooms

Simple English Wikipedia




With Mr. Bulut

Shelly Blake-Plock, an educator and education blogger

posted an article at The Daily Riff on December 2010,

suggesting that some very common elements of today’s

formal education are going to be out of date and no

longer used within a decade. Among the things that

Blake-Plock advocates that will be vanished are student

desks, computers, homework, college entrance exams,

paperback books and use of paper! List actually goes on.

Some people think that these can form a fantastic wish

list rather then an actual prediction. Since it has been

already 5 years after this blog published, you decide if

our classroom can change so drastically by year 2020 to

become something quite different from what we have

today. Read the entire post at: https://tr.im/kdYnu

Time Restrictions Implemented

on Student MacBooks

As part of our 1:1 MacBook Pro program, we are

setting time limits on students’ computer use as a

school policy. This policy will prevent student

MacBooks from being used after a certain time

every evening. According to our current computer

usage curfew policy, student computers will shut

down themselves automatically between 10:30PM

and 7:30AM during school nights and weekend

nights. Within this time window MacBooks will

not be available. If you have any questions

about this policy please directly contact

the school principal, Mr. Emin or Mr. Bulut.
