I’d like to welcome all our new Early Years Families. It’s exciting to see our youngest students starting school and settling into the programme. Please check out the Early Years blogs for more information and updates from the teachers.
Here is the Handbook for New Early Years Parents.
It is great to be back in school, to see the children again, hear their stories and chatter and see them interacting with each other, the teachers and the community.
In order to do this, we have had to accommodate many changes and ministry expectations, introduce many new protocols and ensure our campus is as clean and safe as possible for our students and community. This has meant changes to the schedules, changes to the programme and changes in how we conduct ourselves whilst on campus.
I can not thank you enough for all your support it helping to make this happen. Our soft start was new, the teachers and students were able to familiarize themselves with each other, learn routines and settle back into school in smaller, more intimate groups. Allowing for lots of support. This was very successful for students and teachers alike, thank you for supporting this.
Programme changes, drop-off and pick-up times and protocols have also gone incredibly smoothly, thanks again to you and the partnerships we have across the school.
The protocols are often hard to remember and even harder to model, but as adults in the school community it is important we all try to set a good example with mask-wearing, sanitizing and social distancing, again, thanks for your support with this.
The Pandemic Handbook above outlines all the protocols that have been put in place following the expectations from the Thai Minsitry of Public Health (MOPH) and the Ministry of Education (MOE) and other organizations and agencies.
The Holidays are almost upon us, here is the rundown until the end of the year!
Last Day for donations Friday 6th December – thank you for your generosity.
Air quality, or the lack of it, is upon us again. Please find the letter sent this morning by Paul, Head of School to inform of KIS practices. We remain vigilant in checking both the Air Quality and Heat Index throughout the day, every school day. As always your child’s health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.
Please find an additional copy of the policy here for your convenience.
Please find below information about our Term 1` MAP testing for G3-G5 students, which will take place over over the next few weeks. I have included a letter and the schedule, further information can be found here……
