Nurse’s Office Update | nurse@gisthailand.org
As of Thursday, January 6th at 8am, the CMT is aware of 0 positive PCRs currently among GIS students and staff.

Re-enrollment physical exams are due by Monday, January 31st. We have emailed families of students who are due for a TB skin test or chest x-ray this year.

If you would like your 12-18 year old student to get a Pfizer vaccine, we recommend going to Airport Plaza, Monday-Friday 8am-3pm. For information on boosters, please visit our COVID FAQ page. We are not currently aware of any opportunities for students under age 12 to get vaccinated. 

Communications | commmunications@gisthailand.org
We still have extra copies of the 2022 desktop calendar for those who’d like to order more. Each copy is 80 Baht (cash only). Quantity is limited, so it is a first-come-first serve basis.

Please note: Current GIS families will receive 1 calendar each.
