It is back-to-school time once more and this year we eagerly await our student’s return to the building! This past year has shown us we truly need to live in and appreciate each and every moment. We know that each student and family have experienced the pandemic in different ways; we have all been in the same storm, but in different boats.
Our priority for safety and well-being extends to the social and emotional health of each member of our community. Only when we feel safe and at ease can we be ready to learn and grow. Our counseling team received commendations from the re-accreditation visiting teams for their attention and care for the emotional health of our students. UAS has taken every recommendation from the Ministries of Health and Education to prepare for the safe return of students to the building, which means learning will look a bit different than the last time our students were under our roof. We kindly ask that each family review the welcome videos from Principals and administration so that you and your child know what to expect when students return to campus.
As our teachers prepare to return to Kuwait, and families get ready for ‘Back to School’, the most important items we can have at the ready are patience, flexibility and grace. Working together we can achieve our common goal: student success.
Wishing all our families continued good health!
Mrs. Sarah Borisly, M.Ed.
Assistant Superintendent, UAS
