Air Quality Index
You may be aware that the Korean Ministry of Education has recently changed the scale used to determine the air quality in Korea. An average reading of PM 2.5 was 16-50 and 51-100 was considered bad. Now, an average reading would be from 16-35 and a bad reading would be from 36-75.
We will use the old scale. You do have the option to have your child kept indoors for breaks under the new guidelines as we will have break indoors and outdoors. If you want your child kept inside under the new guidelines, please see the link. This survey should be completed by April 6th.
Please speak with your child and explain the list of activities this evening and sign them up by tomorrow at 3pm. That way, we can begin new activities immediately after the break with no down time needed to register.
A child can sign up for as many activities as the want!
Reports will go home today with the students. Please fill in the parent section and bring it to Parent Conferences.
School will be closed tomorrow for HHI Foundation Day.
