Issue 13: November 20, 2020

From the Government Liaison

Dear Parents,

Time flies quickly and the month of November is almost over, yet the pandemic situation is still not friendly. Everyone continues to face challenges and hard times from personal to business and I want to take this opportunity to invite you to unite our hearts together to thank God, our protector, our life sustainer, and the source of living.

We may not yet see the “harvest” we want to see in every aspect of our life, but there are many other things we can celebrate: His faithfulness during this abnormal time; health and safety for each of our family members; strength when our relative may leave us and return to the Lord’s arms; and for every breath we take that enables us to serve, work and support each other.

Difficulties and limitations are things we can celebrate as well. May these dull and unpleasant circumstances not bind us in the bondage of a tedious life, but with the grace of the Lord let it set us free to pursue the needs of others before ourselves.

A reminder for foreign family’s documents if you move to a different address, don’t forget to file a report to your local police office (Polsek) to get an update of Surat Tanda Melapor (STM). Then request a Surat Keterangan Domisili from your Head of Village or Lurah before you report to the local immigration. It is very important to always update your documents so that you will not get in trouble.

Turkey, bread stuffing, potatoes, cranberries, and pumpkin pie are so comforting and delightful to enjoy with your loved ones and close friends. May our Lord continue to bless and keep us, be gracious and may His peace transcend whatever condition we are in.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Hendri Simanjuntak
Government Liaison

From the BAIS Clinic

We are excited to see you again at BAIS. If your children will be on campus, please be sure that they follow BAIS safety protocols.

As a reminder, in the BAIS parent student handbook on pages 11 and 12 (contagious diseases and determining Illness), students will be required to be absent and sent home if any of the symptoms/diseases listed are present.

The following diseases are contagious, and students (and families) will be required to be absent:

  • Covid-19
  • Chicken Pox
  • Head Lice
  • Viral Hepatitis A
  • Impetigo
  • Mumps
  • Ringworm
  • Rubella-German Measles
  • Scabies
  • Scarlet Fever
  • Whooping Cough
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eyes)

Students are required to be sent home immediately if they have these symptoms and symptoms must be absent from the child for at least 24 hours before returning to school:

  • just vomited
  • fever over 38 degrees C
  • moderate to severe diarrhea
  • draining skin rash or lesion
  • head lice
  • pink eye
  • grossly productive cough

For students who experience seasonal allergies, they may continue to attend classes, but if they experience any changes in symptoms, they must seek an assessment by a healthcare provider. As we are living in times of much medical alarm and uncertainty, BAIS asks that students with seasonal allergies provide a doctor’s note indicating these symptoms are non-communicable.

The purpose of this policy is to prevent the spread of illnesses to the other students. Please help us by reminding your students to:

  • Cover their mouth (with their arm) when they cough and sneeze
  • Wash hands or use antiseptic gel frequently
  • Practice physical distancing from others
  • Get at least 8 hours of sleep nightly
  • Eat well-balanced meals with fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Take a multivitamin daily

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

School Doctor
