Thank you to all for another excellent day at KAS! Like yesterday, we had about 90% attendance, and even with the additional safety measures in place, it was still a joyful day.
1. Bus transportation – we have worked together with our bus companies to ensure ample disinfection supplies. Our bus company is disinfecting the surfaces in the buses every morning before picking up children, and again every afternoon before children board the buses to ride home.
2. Lunch – Our janitors always do a great job of cleaning and disinfecting the entire dining hall after students have completed lunch. However, they are now taking additional steps and promptly disinfecting tables before lunch periods and again as individual students finish their lunches.
3. Pool – Our saltwater swimming pool uses advanced sterilization techniques to ensure a safe environment at all times. We keep our chlorine levels between 1 mg/L and 3 mg/L regularly. The use of chlorine for disinfection is an internationally accepted practice to ensure that pools are safe for use, and to minimize the risk of infectious disease outbreaks. Our pool safety regime includes:
3. 游泳池-我們的鹽水游泳池使用先進的過濾科技系統，確保任何時間都是安全的游泳環境。我們將泳池氯的濃度一直維持在1mg/L and 3 mg/L。國際上普遍都接受使用氯來維持泳池消毒清潔，確保泳池使用的安全。降低傳染病爆發的風險。我們泳池安全維護包含：
a. Manual chlorine checks four times per day, and top-ups of chlorine as appropriate
b. Filter washing – monthly
c. Vacuuming – regularly
d. Continual electronic monitoring of water quality and chlorine levels
Because the safety and health of students remain our top priorities, we will continue to take every possible action to ensure that the KAS campus is a safe and happy place. We thank you for your part in making KAS the great school that it has become.
Have a great weekend,祝您週末愉快,
