2022-2023 Back To School Letter
Dear HAS Parents and Students,
Tuesday, August 9 is the first day of the 2022-2023 school year, and the administration, staff, and teachers of Hsinchu American School are very excited. This being the last year in our current facility, we are hopeful it will be a fantastic year for graduating seniors, and for all of our students. Certainly, we greatly anticipate the move to our new facilities in 2023, but we want to assure you of our commitment to provide the best educational experience in the upcoming year.
To maintain the health and safety of students, the school follows the COVID 19 epidemic prevention guidelines of the Ministry of Education. All students and staff must monitor their body temperature and wear masks. Students are requested to upload the quick screening test within two days before the start of the school year; the school staff has completed three doses of the vaccine, or those who have received less than three doses of the vaccine will be able to enter the school after the weekly quick screening. Parents, please be rest assured.
Next Tuesday will be a day to orient students for the school year. Students will receive their textbooks, locker keys, and schedules. They will also interact with returning and new students during various afternoon activities sponsored and run by the Student Council. The first day of actual instruction will be on Wednesday, August 10. Students are required to bring a laptop or tablet with a keyboard to school.
Also, on Tuesday, August 9 we will have our fall photo day for all students and staff. Please wear appropriate clothing on that day. We thought it best to take these photos on orientation day to avoid adversely affecting an instructional day. Please also bring a backpack, pencil box, and a water bottle. Students under our lunch program will be provided lunch by the Carlton Hotel. Please arrive at school before 8:15.
We wish to thank all of you for your support of Hsinchu American School.
Darin Murphy, Head of School
Mitch Hall, Associate Principal
