Due to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases, our school program will be held online between Tuesday 20th April until Friday 30th April. Teachers will be in contact with parents with further details of the program. The safety and wellbeing of our school community is our main priority and we will continue to provide ongoing support to all students, parents and staff throughout this time.
Please see below a letter from our school Director, Mr Brenton Hall, sent to AISB parents on 15th April 2021.
I do hope you are having a safe and enjoyable Songkran holiday but do interrupt it with important news.
With the surge of Covid 19 cases over the past two weeks in Thailand, we have received a letter from the MOE urging all schools to revert to online/distance learning for the next two weeks. (At AISB this means from Tuesday 20th April till Friday April 30th)
Thus, from Tuesday April 20th the school will not be open for students and our school program will once more be held online as it was in January this year.
We will follow the same online schedule and use the same online platforms that we used in January as we believe they were effective at that time. We will, however, provide video lessons for some specialist subjects such as Thai and PE.
Teachers will be in contact with parents to inform of the proposed teaching program, and the links and codes needed for online classes.
Students new to our school will be informed of requirements to go online by their class teacher.
As we did in January, we will make resources available to be picked up from the school and High School students will be able to access their lockers. Information regarding this will be sent in a further email to parents.
iGCSE students will be informed of Exams over the next week as we are in contact with Cambridge regarding how they will be conducted.
This return to online learning means that all ASAs and Clubs (Swimming and Football) will not start as planned. We will inform you of start dates when the Covid situation allows clarity to make this decision.
Please be assured that we put the health and safety of our community at the forefront and so will follow Department of Health, Covid 19 guidelines and protocols.
We do ask our families to continue to be vigilant by;
Avoiding outings to crowded public areas or gatherings outside of your immediate family or routine social circle.
Continuing to wash your hands, social distance and to wear a mask.
Keeping a log of your daily movements to facilitate contact tracing should the need arise.
It is IMPORTANT too that you report to us, any confirmed cases of Covid 19 in your household, or any official order to quarantine due to contact with a confirmed Covid 19 case. Reports to be made to Brenton Hall, Director, who will liaise between the family and the school and provide ongoing support.
I thank you for your support at this time and like you do, I hope that the Covid 19 infection rate decreases to allow us to be back at school, face to face as soon as possible.
