Please find below updates regarding the school reopening.
After careful discussions with our Leadership Team and taking into account the upsurge in COVID-19 cases in Bangkok and surrounding provinces, we have decided to reactivate our remote learning program on 17th August 2021, the first day of school. We are naturally disappointed that school is unable to start with everyone on campus, but we remain optimistic about what we can achieve even under current circumstances.
On Monday, 2 August, our Loop Leaders and the Learning Design Team will email you with all the necessary information regarding remote learning, including guidelines and important details on schedules, expectations, roles, and responsibilities.
Learning Design Team Orientation: 2-16 August 2021
Our new and returning Learning Designers will take part in a comprehensive orientation program beginning Monday, 2 August. As well as onboarding new team members, we will be working in teams to ensure everything is ready for our first day of Remote Learning on Tuesday, 17 August.
Family Orientation Day: 11 August 2021
Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, we are unable to host our Family Orientation Day on campus. Instead, we will be sending all our families a schedule and a Zoom link for an individual meeting with your child’s Learning Design Team. This will allow us to introduce our team and give parents the opportunity to ask any questions they may have before the start of school.
We are excited to officially launch our Upper Loop program this year as we welcome our 9-10 Cohort students and their new Learning Design Team. We also had a very positive response to our inaugural Scholarship Program and look forward to welcoming an amazing group of talented learners to the Upper Loop.
On Monday, 2 August, our Communications Team will share links for you to complete a standard set of school forms that need to be updated for the start of every school year. Please assist us in having these forms completed and submitted before Friday, 13 August.
We continue to be in regular communication with the Ministry of Education and Samut Prakan government agencies and are closely monitoring the situation. If we receive any new information that will impact our community, we will communicate this to you. Please check your VERSO Gmail and CoCo regularly.
Our campus is closed until further notice, but if you need to enter the campus, please contact the Front Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +66 2 080 6200 to make an appointment. Please note that you must complete the COVID-19 self-disclosure form before entering the campus.
If you have any questions, please reach out to our Communications Department at email@example.com.
