Dear Parents and Guardians,
As I am sure you are all aware, the situation in Phnom Penh remains very unpredictable. Our hopes and prayers are with our local and global community who are currently being affected by the COVID19 Virus.
At this point in time, our primary concern is towards the safety of our parents and students. We have fumigated school and sanitized both campuses. We are taking this situation with the utmost seriousness and are continuing to take every safety precaution available, many of which were in place prior to the outbreak. We are running daily temperature checks at the entrances of both campuses and requiring all staff and visitors to remain outside until they have sanitized their hands and had their temperature read.
All staff are strongly encouraged to wear masks while on school premises, and we request that any visitor to school does the same. Anyone registering a temperature reading of above 37.5 will not be permitted access onto school premises.
We anticipate that due to government regulations and requirements from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education, Youth & Sports, DK Schoolhouse will remain closed for students until the after Khmer New Year, with plans to reopen on the 22nd of April.
Please rest assured that we will continue to update parents of the ongoing situation as we receive information from the MOH and MOEYS.
Kindly note the following:
1. We are treating this period of closure as summer camp. Learning content will continue to be generated via online platforms and hard-copy. The length that school is closed for will be made up for by an extended academic school year.
It’s important to remember that during these unprecedented times we must come together and support each other as part of a community. All of our parents are a part of DK Schoolhouse’s family and we remain committed to supporting you and your children in any way that we can.
Please know that we are here for you and will continue to generate learning content with you via our online platforms (Telegram, GG Classrooms & ClassDojo) as well as in hard copy if parents would like take home packs. Our teachers are working around the clock to provide additional content for your children such as crafts, game ideas, coloring pages and science experiments so your child has something to keep them busy during this period of closure.
We would like to extended our sincere thanks to our parent community for their patience and understanding during this time.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please stay safe and continue to follow the hygiene polices as recommended by the World Health Organization.
We deeply appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time and look forward to welcoming your children back as soon as possible to see their bright, shiny new classrooms and playground.
With Warmest Regards,
Director of DK Schoolhouse
