Dear AST Family and Friends,

Thank you for making sure that students come to school wearing masks. We are all still adjusting to the current normal. During our decision making related to COVID-19, we have maintained these two priorities in this order:

  1. Safety of everyone at AST
  2. Academic achievement of our students

Everything else has been third. This has included the cancellation of numerous events that are part of our culture as a school. 


Based on these two foci, there is one thing that we haven’t yet triggered. This language has been at the bottom of the Year-at-a-Glance calendar for a very long time: 

Up to 5 additional days will be added to the end of the year in case of any emergency days.

We think that this situation sufficiently constitutes an emergency and we are adding those five days. We are doing this so that we have the time to maintain some of those things that might otherwise be canceled. This change means that:

  • The last day of the school year will be Wednesday, June 10, 2020.
  • The week of June 1 through June 5 will be a regular 5-day week continuing to alternate Day 1 and Day 2.
  • The last week will look like this: (so far)

  • Seniors
  • Graduation is moved to May 29
  • Last regular day is May 22
  • Graduation rehearsal is May 26, 27, 28
  • Senior finals or makeups is May 25, 26

  • Events to schedule
  • We are still working to schedule the Spring Concert and the drama performances that are cornerstones of the end of the semester for the school.
  • ES semester celebration is canceled due to COVID- 19 and the restrictions on social distancing requirements and restrictions. ES will showcase our learning for this semester in a different way and the teachers will let you know later how they will proceed. 
  • We anticipate MAPS testing to occur within the same three-week window that we previously planned.
  • ES/MS(G1-8) May 19-21, make up: May 22
  • HS (G9&10) May 26-28, make up: May 29


Thank you for remaining flexible as we adjust our calendar to best meet the safety and academic needs of students during this unprecedented challenge.  


Have a great week,

Anthony & Annie

Reminders:

  • 2020-2021 Registration Fee is due on April 30th, 2020
  • May 1 (Labour Day) is a regular school day
  • Everyone is required to wear a mask at all times, except when eating. Please prepare a few extra masks in case they are misplaced/wet/broken.

親愛的AST家庭和朋友們,

感謝大家配合在校園內全面配戴口罩的防疫措施。我們都在適應將這些措施融入正常生活中,學校在與COVID-19相關的決策過程中,一直是以下列順序為優先考量:

  1. AST大家庭每一份子健康安全
  2. 同學們的學術成就

其他一切則都排在第三順位。所以,包括取消許多已經被視為學校文化一部分的活動等決策,都是依循這原則決定的。


基於上述兩個焦點,學校有一項聲明,長久以來一直放在學校年度行事曆總表的下方,原文及翻譯如下: 

Up to 5 additional days will be added to the end of the year in case of any emergency days.

(如有緊急需要,學校可於學年末最多增加 5天上課 )

考量因應COVID-19 防疫情況應足以構成緊急需要,這學年我們決定將增加上述的五個上課天,並利用多出來的上課天進行一些原本可能將取消的校園活動。我們調整的行事曆如下:

  • 本學年最後一天上課將是2020年6月10日星期三
  • 6月1日至6月5日那星期將繼續依循原日常Day 1、Day 2課表
  • 最後一星期的課表目前規劃如下:

  • 應屆畢業生
  • 畢業典禮 - 5月 29日
  • 正常上課最後一天 - 5月22日
  • 畢業典禮彩排日 - 5月 26, 27, 28日
  • 畢業考或補考 - 5月 25, 26日


  • 活動時程
  • 我們仍在努力安排春季音樂會和戲劇表演,這是學期末的兩大重頭戲。
  • 小學部的學習成果發表會因新冠肺炎防疫須保持社交距離等規定而取消。我們將以不同的方式來展示本學期小學生的學習成果,詳細執行方案老師們將在稍後告知您。
  • 我們將依先前的計畫進行 MAPS 測驗
  • ES/MS(G1-8) - 5月 19-21日,補考- 5月22日
  • HS (G9&10) - 5月 26-28日,補考 - 5月29日


感謝您在這嚴峻的時期,給予學校依學生安全與學術成就兼顧原則彈性調整學年底行事曆的支持。  


祝大家有個美好的一周!

校長  Anthony Keen 副校長  Annie Tung
