As an American school in Taiwan, Kaohsiung American School is committed to the safety and welfare of our students, staff, and families. We will continue to follow a proactive approach in understanding and implementing best practices to prevent and eradicate the COVID-19 virus. KAS will also continue to follow the guidelines and directives of the Taiwanese government and CECC.
KAS recognizes the importance of a scientific and unified approach to protection and prevention. KAS has a school-based leadership “Response Team,” responsible for processing new information, designing appropriate school actions, and communicating with both the Taiwan government and the school community in a clear and timely manner.
KAS understands that as a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the world has changed in ways we are only beginning to understand and that our school community must be prepared to innovate and design creative solutions for teaching, learning, and social/emotional development. We have a relentless imperative to support our students in our school mission towards becoming Balanced Individuals, Independent Thinkers, and Global Citizens.
