*New* Going Out As Lights (GOAL) Campaign Launches | development@gisthailand.org

Last week letters were sent home with students as well as a short Secondary Chapel event to announce the GOAL Campaign launch. You can help us complete the Multipurpose Athletics Complex by praying, sharing, and giving towards this instructional and ministry tool. More details at this link.

Health announcement! | nurse@gisthailand.org

Re-enrollment time is coming soon for all students. The required medical records are part of the re-enrollment. Please pay attention to your child/children’s immunization records and the TB skin test.  Students’ medical information is on the Parent Web in the Renweb system under the medical tab.

Medical requirements: 

  1. All students including ESD are required to have an annual comprehensive physical exam each year. This examination should be completed within 3 months of the date of the re-enrollment time. Health Examination Policy.
  2. All students must be in compliance with the GIS immunization policy here
  3. The TB skin test should be renewed every 3 years. For more information on our TB policy, click here.  If a student’s last TB skin test was in 2017, they will need to renew for the upcoming school year 2020-21. This is recorded by a physician on the Physical Examination form for each student. 

If you have any questions and concerns, please contact the school nurse.
