Newsletter 2020/21 Term 1 Week 3

Posted in - Latest News

Dear Parents,

I am pleased that the typhoon passed and left us relatively unscathed. Thank you to the teachers for all their efforts in creating an effective online learning space and to the parents and students for their patience throughout the day. We have been fortunate to have had clear, calm weather for the rest of the week. These are the newsworthy items that I would like to share with you this week.

Farewell Rani and Lynn

Sadly, we had to bid farewell to Lynn and Rani Choi as they departed HFS on Wednesday. In the short time that they were at HFS, both of them made themselves at home at HFS. We wish them luck and happiness on the next step of their learning journey and would like them to know that, should they return, they will always have a place at HFS.

School Bus Schedule Updated

There are some changes to the HFS School bus schedule. Please click here to see the new schedule and ensure that you bring your child to your allocated pick-up point at the appointed time. Thank you for your cooperation in this regard.

Curriculum Evening and Class Photos Cancelled

While we had hoped to have our curriculum evening on Monday 14 September, we have had to cancel the event due to coronavirus concerns and the further guidance issued by the medical authorities earlier this week. Instead, we will post a description of the HFS curricula on the school website. We will also postpone the class photos until such time when the students no longer need to wear masks. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

Staff CPR and First-Aid Training

I am pleased to report that all full-time staff at HFS underwent a course in proper CPR and first aid on Wednesday evening. This course will better enable the staff to ensure that your child is safe while under their care and shows HFS’s commitment to safety and protection at the school.

Finally, as cases of Covid-19 continue to increase in Ulsan, we must be alert and vigilant to keep our school a safe and hygienic place of teaching and learning. If your child has any symptoms of Covid-19, please contact the admin office first, before you take them to the screening center. Also, should students’ family members need to take the Covid-19 test, please inform the school immediately so that we can take the necessary action promptly. Again, thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work together in this situation.

That is all for this week. Thank you for your continued support and do have a wonderful weekend.

Mr. Kearney
