Dear Parents,

We have been waiting to update you on the school closure situation because we
have been waiting to hear the most concrete and updated directives from the Thai
government.


In general, the Thai government announced that they will make a decision every 15
days on whether to continue or end school and business closures.
As per the most recent directive from the Ministry of Education, schools have been
ordered continued closure until April 12, 2020.


However, as of yesterday, the Thai government has declared an emergency decree
from March 26 – April 30, 2020. We are not sure what this entails for schools but
we will update you on as soon as there is more clarification by either the Thai
government or the Ministry of Education.


We understand how difficult and stressful this situation is for all of our families, our
staff, and our society as a whole. Our teachers much prefer to teach students in
person and all of us can’t wait for this situation to be over. However, it is also
important to remember that schools and people from the whole world are also
going through this same situation. The best we can do is to implement online
learning to the best of our ability.

We thank you so much for your patience and support.

Sincerely yours,


Patcharalak Didyasarin Tavedikul
Head of School
