Dear KAS families,
Thank you for your ongoing cooperation with our safety procedures. We are so happy for students to be returning to familiar routines now that after school activities have resumed. However, even though we are returning to some familiar routines, we must continue enhancing our efforts to keep students safe.
Parents are the school’s key partner in educating students, and we miss having parents and the community here on campus! Even though it has been almost 5 weeks since we began Digital Days, and almost 3 weeks since we reopened classrooms, our Response Team continues to meet daily to review reliable, official information, and to determine how we modify our plans. Likewise, our disinfection procedures, closed campus, and health screenings continue. We will maintain these additional precautions for as long as it takes to ensure the continued health and safety of our students.
For your reference, the precautions we are taking on campus can be found here and here, and all updates about our response to the COVID-19 situation can be found at www.kas.tw/health-update.
As a school we are united around the importance of safety, and we have come together so well as a community. I would like to personally thank each and every student, parent, faculty, and staff member for your part in keeping our school community safe.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep you fully informed of the steps we are taking.
Dr. Ben Ploeger
Kaohsiung American School
