Dear VERSO community members,
I hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy during this summer break.
As the number of COVID-19 cases is on the rise, I understand that many of you are concerned about the impact this has on VERSO as we are located in the government designated Dark Red zone. Our Leadership Team and School Director are closely monitoring the situation and are in regular communication with the Ministry of Education and Samut Prakan government agencies. We will keep you updated with any guidelines as soon as they are announced.
In the meantime, I am pleased to say that preparations are already underway for the beginning of the new school year on Tuesday, 17 August. Unfortunately, at the moment we remain unsure if we will be allowed to open the campus, or if we will be required to continue remote learning. Again, we will keep you informed of any announcements made by the Ministry of Education regarding this.
I’m also delighted to let you know that many of our new Learning Designers have begun to arrive in Thailand, and are now in quarantine. We’re excited to welcome them all to our community and look forward to introducing them to you soon. We are currently preparing a comprehensive orientation program for everyone in our educational team, which is scheduled to begin on Monday, 2 August.
Another important date to remember is Wednesday, 11 August. This is when our Family Orientation Day is scheduled. Further details on the schedule for this day will be sent to you at the end of July.
Our Communications Department will also be in touch soon with important information on some of the school forms that need to be updated for the start of the new year. This includes forms related to health, photo consent, car parking labels, and ID cards.
Even though our campus is closed for the summer holidays, please email email@example.com or call +66 02 080 6200 if you have any questions.
That’s all for now. Please continue to look after each other and stay safe.
