GENERAL

Air Pollution Season| nurse@gisthailand.org

As we enter air pollution season, we recommend your student bring 2 masks to school: one surgical/cloth mask for COVID prevention and one N95 style for poor air quality. If your Secondary student has asthma, please make sure they bring their inhaler with them to school. Our GIS Air Quality Index Chart can be accessed here for policies regarding activities and school closures.

Physical exam forms are available here. We will not be able to do any physical exams at our January vaccine clinic this year. You will receive an email reminder if your student is due for TB testing this year. Please return completed forms to Health Services by January 29th.

Students are encouraged to dress up like an animal for this month’s Tiger Pride Dress-Up Day on Thursday, January 21.   Please remember to keep costumes modest and if your child doesn’t want to participate, they should wear their normal Grace uniform.  Looking forward to seeing how many creative animal costumes the students come up with

REC LEAGUE:
Rec League Basketball will be starting on Saturday, Jan. 23rd! A couple notes:

  • Please use the main entrance at the guard shack and wear your masks at all times
  • We want to honour the Thai government and the restrictions placed so the number of people allowed on campus will be limited. Please keep this in mind when deciding who will come to watch the games –> Genesis cafe is a great place to hang out while you wait!
  • Students will be told which teams they are on the morning they get there and will receive their jersey IF they have paid. Students who have not paid will not be allowed to practice or play with their team
