We are excited to be moving closer to having our students back on campus with us safely.
We are pleased to announce that we have submitted all of the documents required by the MoEYS. As one of Phnom Penh’s highest standard schools – both academically and in regards to health and safety – we are working hard to prepare for the return of our community members. We have signed a Memorandum of Understanding and are waiting to hear from them soon.
Returning to Campus SafelyWe are expecting to host a group of officials from the MoEYS at some point early next week, as the next step we take in the process towards reopening our campus. After the visit, we will make any adjustments they suggest to ensure our campus can open as safely as possible. After the visit, we will take one day next week to prepare our teachers and students for their return. More information will be shared with everyone as soon as we know more.As we prepare to welcome our students back to campus in the coming days, we would like to briefly share a few of the key points around our return to campus:Any parent wishing to have their child return to school must sign our Parent Waiver. One must be completed for each child. These forms are available online, in our main office and attached to this email. Students will be separated into “East” and “West” groups to attend school on campus on alternating days. Students have been grouped with siblings and extended family members. Your child’s teacher or advisor will inform you of which group your child is in.Everyone must keep a social distance of 2 meters from each other while on campusEveryone must wear a face covering at all timesPlease use our many handwashing stations and sanitizing gel dispensers for personal hygieneMore information can be found in the following documents:Learning Handbook – https://ewiscambodia.edu.kh/Parent Handbook – https://ewiscambodia.edu.kh/resources/SOP Document and Schedule (in Khmer) – (attached)

Weekly Health Update from Our School NurseThe Ministry of Health continues to urge everyone to be extra careful about hand hygiene and wearing masks before going out, as well as to avoid large gatherings. While there have only been a few COVID-19 positive cases in the past few weeks, it is important to remain careful when coughing or sneezing. Please remember to use a paper towel to cover your mouth and be sure to throw it away in the trash immediately after. Then wash your hands with soap or an alcohol sanitizing gel.Also, remember to drink enough water – at least 2.5 or 3 liters a day – to keep the body hydrated. Drinking lots of water and eating healthy foods ensures your body has enough nutrients to strengthen your immune system.
