Dear AST Family and Friends, 

As we approach Spring Break, we are remaining proactive in the protection of our kids. If anyone is still planning to travel outside of Taiwan or planning to host visitors from outside of Taiwan, we again would like to urge you to reconsider those plans. Today, we have learned that a recent expatriate man was tested positive for the COVID-19 virus in central Taiwan. This man was infected by visitors from the States. Even though he is not in our community, we are asking everyone to practice social distancing and exercise caution during this time. 

To track travel and make as informed decisions as possible, we will send out another Travel Survey. It will look much like the previous travel survey with a focus on your travel plans during spring break and throughout the remainder of the year. Completion of the survey will be required before anyone is allowed to return to campus after Spring Break. 


We’ve noticed a number of students wearing CIO2 “virus away” tags around their necks. After doing some research and consulting with medical professionals, they suggest the chemicals(CIO2) may pose some potential harm to the human body, causing skin irritation or causing damage to the respiratory system. The use of these tags should be reconsidered. Here are some news articles related to the use of these products:

We are still encouraging students to frequently wash their hands and wear a mask as a practical way to protect oneself. 


Have a great weekend,

Anthony & Annie

Planning for 2020-2021

Here is the Year-at-a-Glance Calendar for 2020-2021. Please note that we are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and that this may also impact the next school year.

Food & Drink Delivery

I sent an email to all of our students this week regarding food and drink deliveries to AST. We are only allowing food vendors to deliver to campus that we regularly work with. We have taken steps to ensure that the people preparing food for our students are doing so in a healthy environment and are physically healthy. We do not have any control over other vendors. Based on this, we are banning all other deliveries of food and drinks for students. The guard has been instructed to turn away food vendors attempting to deliver to students. If a student needs lunch, they should bring it from home or purchase school lunch. If a student needs to buy school lunch, they should see Ms. Amber in GAO. 

Schedule Change Reminders

  • Thursday, March 19 -- PA Meeting is canceled
  • Friday, March 20 -- Full day schedule at AST




親愛的AST家庭和朋友們,

春假即將到來,我們將持續積極保護AST全體孩童。如果您仍有計畫到海外旅行或打算接待來自台灣地區以外的訪客,我們需再次敦促您:請慎重再考慮一下那些計劃。今天,我們剛收到中部地區有位美國籍男性被確診為武漢肺炎病例的消息。這名男子疑似遭到已離境的美國友人自美來台拜訪期間感染了COVID-19。即使這名確診病例並非AST大家庭的一員,我們仍要請大家注意於防疫期間日常社交時,應保持安全距離,並隨時提高警覺。


為了追踪個人旅遊史,讓學校好做出明智的校務決策,我們近期將再發送另一份旅行調查問卷。這份問卷與上次的類似,重點在統計大家春假期間以及今年剩餘時間的旅行計劃。春假結束前,請大家必須完成該問卷後,才可以回到校園上課。


我們注意到校園裡有許多學生的脖子上戴著CIO2(二氧化氯)“病毒遠離”掛頸隨身卡。我們也進行了一些研究並諮詢了醫學專家意見,他們建議使用化學藥品(CIO2, 二氧化氯)可能會對人體造成某些潛在傷害,從而引起皮膚刺激或對呼吸系統造成損害。請大家應重新考慮是否使用這些隨身卡。以下是與這些產品的使用有關的一些新聞文章:


我們仍持續鼓勵學生經常洗手並戴口罩來保護自己。


祝大家周末愉快,

校長 金安東     副校長 童元欣

2020-2021學年行事曆

請點閱 2020-2021行事曆總表 ,並請注意:學校持續密切注意新冠病毒防疫進展,若有需要可能會隨時調整學校行事曆。


訂購外送餐點及飲料

AST對於訂購校外飲食餐點外送到校園來的規定,我已在這星期寄發給全體學生。我們只允許與學校有合作關係的廠商載運食物到校園來。對於與我們合作的廠商,我們已採取必要措施,以確保廠商為學生準備食物的人是在健康的環境中且身體健康的狀態下工作完成給我們的食物。至於其他廠商,我們則無法掌握他們的狀況。因此,AST禁止學生訂購外送餐點及飲料等食品到校。並已指示學校警衛拒絕外送員將食品送來給學生。如果學生需要午餐,則應自已從家中帶來學校或購買學校午餐。學生若需訂購學校午餐,請洽總務室 Ms. Amber。


行事曆異動提醒
