We hope this message finds you and your families happy and healthy as we all prepare for the approaching school year. Toward that end, please do know that in an effort to provide all Yangon Academy students the best possible start to the school year, we will be delaying our opening by 1-week, with the first day of classes for all K-12 students commencing on Monday, August 21. This delayed opening will allow us to put the final refinements to our beautiful, new secondary school campus, as well as affording the faculty opportunities for even further professional development. In the meantime, the School will soon be sending an additional e-mail message to all families with the revised school calendar.
Lastly, in light of the recent events surrounding the flu-virus, please know we share the concerns of our families and community. Please note, should you wish to have your child inoculated, local vaccines are available. We encourage all parents and guardians to review with their children the best practices for good hygiene: frequent hand-washing, covering sneezes and coughs, reporting symptoms immediately, and remaining at home if not feeling well. Once school commences, we will review again with your children the best practices for remaining healthy.
