As we continue to come together to support Ukraine, we are reminded of the many regions of the world in prolonged conflict and crisis. TIE will continue to share updates on the #StandWithUkraine page, including a new message from Rachel Caldwell at PSI, Kyiv. In addition, we encourage reflections and updates from schools across the world on the situations in their countries. Please continue to share information, pool resources, and network in any way possible to support our international school community.

So two Mondays ago, the French government dropped the mandatory mask wearing for students and teachers inside and outside of the school buildings.
