Head of School's Column | What should we do amidst global pandemic?

Dear students, This week, we have witnessed the virus outbreak going global, while the situation in China is improving. As businesses and companies are returning to work, we continue to feel the magnitude of the impact of the virus outbreak. We feel compassionate about the loss suffered by the people affected, and we feel inspired by the tens of thousands of medical professionals continuing battling the virus in Wuhan, Hubei, China, and around the world.

Dear students, 



This week, we have witnessed the virus outbreak going global, while the situation in China is improving. As businesses and companies are returning to work, we continue to feel the magnitude of the impact of the virus outbreak. We feel compassionate about the loss suffered by the people affected, and we feel inspired by the tens of thousands of medical professionals continuing battling the virus in Wuhan, Hubei, China, and around the world. 



We have to do our part in a national and even global effort to battle the virus. The first thing we can do is to obey the local ordinance rules about wearing a mask in public, avoid close face-to-face contact and congregation, and accurately report your travel and follow quarantine rule if applicable.  In doing so, you deny an opportunity for the virus to spread, potentially preventing 2-3 further spreads. 



We want to limit our loss of instructional time by completing our virtual school tasks on time. Crisis helps us grow. Good times build confidence and excellence; Bad times build characters and innovators. It is special times like this that brings out the best of you, understanding what and who you are studying for, perform the same with or without teacher's or parent's supervision, or even better without. When you do your part to limit your loss due to the virus outbreak, our nation's loss is smaller because of you. 



Soldier ON!
