Dear Parents,

I hope that you kept safe and well as typhoon Maysak battered Ulsan on Wednesday night. I am relieved that damage to the school was minimal and thankful that we could resume teaching and learning soon after the closure on Thursday. These are the newsworthy items that I wish to share with you this week.

E-Learning on Monday

With another typhoon predicted to reach Ulsan on Sunday and Monday, HFS is taking proactive measures to ensure that teaching and learning will not be disrupted, since we consider your child’s safe education to be our topmost priority. As the Hanmaeum Center will be closed on Monday 7 September due to the typhoon concerns, the school will conduct on-line lessons on the same day to ensure that our students’ learning will not be affected. As such, students will take their laptops home today. However, since the teachers are scheduled to provide on-line teaching from their home, please be aware that in case, SMS the Residence, the living quarters for the teachers and many students, are affected by the typhoon, on-line lessons might not take place as planned. Thank you for your cooperation in this regard. Here are some links to assist you with using the HFS E-learning platform.

Quick Links for E-Learning

Curriculum Evening Postponed to Monday 14 September

With the on-line lessons planned on next Monday 7 September, the curriculum evening originally scheduled for the same day will now move to Monday 14 September from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. We apologise for this inconvenience and I look forward to seeing you there.

PTA Meeting

I would like to thank the parents who attended our first PTA meeting of the new academic year on Tuesday. I am pleased that we could share the HFS Child Safeguarding and Protection Policy as well as the safety improvements that we have made to our school in the break. The next PTA meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 13 October and I hope to see you there.

Dongrami Theater

The Dongrami Theater is sending out a message to parents who would like their child to develop their confidence, speaking and performance skills in a fun and creative environment. They are putting together a production of the Snow Queen and the Bremen Band and are looking for performers. The classes will be conducted in very small groups and follow social distancing protocols. Please call Miss YooJung Im at 052-258-1248 or 010-3191-8437 if you would like your child to participate.

That is all for this week. Thank you for your continued support and do have a wonderful weekend ensuring that you keep safe during the typhoon.

Mr. Kearney
