Thank you for your emails and messages today regarding the air pollution levels, we realize they are quite high at the moment and concerning for our community. I would just like to take this opportunity, inform new, and remind existing parents about our current Air Quality Index (AQI) Policy and procedures.
Last year we had our first bout of concerning pollution, at which point we worked with several other schools in Bangkok to develop a policy that would ensure the safety and well being of our students, and also provide some consistency in procedure in school across the city. This policy was developed collaboratively, approved and put into practice. Along with the documentation and guidelines, we purchased four Air quality monitors which are placed strategically around the school so that our AQI readings are directly related to our campus. These monitors give us the AQI and PM2.5 levels. Teachers and staff have access to live readings via the school server on their devices, throughout the day. Before each break or outside activity, the index/data is checked and the appropriate protocol put in place. we are also in the process of purchasing a quantity of air purifiers for indoor use around the school.
Please be assured your child’s well being is our first priority, and we will continue to do all we can to ensure their environment whilst at school is as safe as possible. I have attached the policy for you to read, feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you have any additional questions.
Have a wonderful weekend.
