Coming soon...Kids Up relaunch
Kids Up is an app, designed by some of our parents, which makes picking up your child a quick and easy process. We will be re-launching this in the coming weeks and will be hosting an information session for parents. More details will follow soon, but in the meantime, you can find out more about the app here: https://www.kidsup.app/
Well Child Policy
Families who have been with us for some time will know that St Andrews International School Bangkok has a Well Child Policy that we share with parents so that we can work together to keep our community as healthy as we can.
For the benefit of new families, here is the essence of our policy...
In order to prevent illness spreading we ask that you keep your child at home until they are well again.
To avoid any confusion here is the definition of a well child:
A well child is not reliant on Calpol, Tempra or other cold/flu medicine to get them through the day
A well child is well enough to join in school activities
A well child has a normal appetite
A well child is happy and sociable
A well child does not require greater staff ratio
A well child has normal bowel function
Please inform the school or email the teacher directly if your child is sick. If we are aware of the illnesses the children have, we can work out strategies for preventing them spreading, so please inform us of what is wrong each time.
Teachers teach the children how to use and dispose of tissues, and how to cough without spreading germs. They also teach them how to wash their hands thoroughly and encourage this regularly across the day. These are all the things you can support with at home.
As a school, we always do an additional Deep Clean in classrooms where we have had multiple instances of illness, to help prevent the spread. The nurse also checks the temperature of all of the children in these classes. Parents of any children found to have a fever will be contacted immediately so that they can be cared for at home.
As usual at this time of year when children come together after the long break, there are a number of coughs and colds going around school, some with, some without a fever. Thank you to those parents who are identifying symptoms in their children early in the morning and keeping them home. This is the best way of making sure we stop the spread of viruses.
