Safety and Emergency Procedures

Emergency Preparedness

Procedures are in place for foreseeable emergencies that may affect the safety of students at ISNS.  The school will be closed should there be an emergency that makes it unsafe to travel to school.  School buildings will be evacuated should there be a fire or other emergency which causes it to be unsafe to remain inside.  Additional procedures have been established to “lock-down” the campus in the event of an intruder or other outside danger.


Every student should be aware of these procedures and carefully follow their teacher’s instructions should an emergency occur

Storm Day Procedures

During the rainy season in the summer and fall, tropical Shenzhen may experience heavy rains and typhoons. In the case of a Yellow Typhoon Warning or a Red Rainstorm Warning, school will be closed and all parents will be contacted about the Storm Day by email and by Wechat message. Please make sure your contact information with the school is up-to-date. Also, please refer to our Student Agenda for our Emergency Plan Procedure.

For city-wide information about weather conditions, parents are advised to watch television (SZTV), listen to the radio or call the weather channel at 12121 (press 1 for Mandarin, 2 for Cantonese and 3 for English) for updates.

Students who arrive at school on a Storm Day can stay in the classrooms with our teachers until transportation home is arranged.

School Closure Plan for Typhoons and Extreme Weather

All parents will be contacted by ISNS webmail and WeChat if school is closed prior to 6:30 AM and most likely before 10:30 PM on the evening before a typhoon. For sudden storm warnings parents will be contacted immediately. Parents are advised to watch SZTV or call the weather channel at 12121 (press 1 for Mandarin, 2 for Cantonese and 3 for English) for bad weather warnings. If the SZTV warning light goes to Level 8, Yellow Warning Signal of Typhoon, or Red Warning Level of Heavy Rain (or if the SZTY states that schools in Shenzhen should be closed) check your email and your mobile phone for messages from the school.

Please note that you will not receive a call, as this method is far too slow. If parents are not presently receiving our webmail or emergency text messages, they are advised to check with the Admissions office to make sure that their email and mobile phone information is correct. If parents do not have access to the Internet, please follow the SZTV warnings and contact another parent who does have access. The school Admissions Office will be open by 8:00 AM (26454994) and parents can call at that time. Please never allow your child to go to the bus alone in bad weather since buses may be re-routed and not on time.

台风/ 突发暴雨 季节应急预案的信息

如果学校因为台风而停课,学校最可能会在台风登陆前一晚10:30之前或停课当天早上6:30之前通过学校的邮箱发邮件和微信通知所有家长。如遇当日突发暴雨,学校会在第一时间发邮件及微信通知家长。我们也建议家长在恶劣天气情况下随时关注深圳电视台的预警信号或者拨打天气频道电话12121(普通话按1,广东话按2,英语按3)查看恶劣天气警告。如果深圳电视台的预警信号达到8号台风黄色预警信号或暴雨红色预警信号(或深圳电视台已经发布深圳的中小学校应该停课的通知),请查看您的邮箱和手机。

请您注意:学校并不会逐一给家长打电话通知,因为花费的时间太长,会给沟通工作带来不便。如果家长目前没有收到过学校发送的邮件或短信,请及时和招生办公室联系确保邮箱和手机信息准确无误。如果家长无法连接网络,请遵循深圳电视台的指引或联系其他能够上网查邮件的家长。学校招生办公室(26454994)会在早上8:00开放,届时家长可打电话咨询。同时校巴可能会因恶劣天气而不能准时到达或改变线路,所以请不要让您的小孩独自一人在外面候车。
