Letter from Dr. Gerdes about EC Re-Opening

May 29, 2020

Dear EC Concordia Phoenix Families,

We are very pleased to share our plans regarding the re-opening of Concordia’s EC Division.

The recent Early Childhood inspection by government authorities was successful. We are now at the final approval stage to re-open.

Pending approval from the education authorities, we will re-open our Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten levels on Monday, June 15th. Concordia’s new health and safety protocols are in place and are designed for the well-being of our youngest students.

Our goal is to use a period of “Welcome Back Days” to have our students re-enter their learning environment and become familiar with new safety protocols. Students will re-join their regular classrooms and see familiar faculty and staff who are in Shanghai.

There will be no busing available; however, lunch food service will be available.

As of today, based on government guidelines, all international school EC programming must be completed by June 30th. This means June 30th is the current final day for our EC students to be on campus. If there are any changes to government guidelines or dates, we will communicate with our families quickly.  

Again, our re-opening on June 15th is pending full approval by government authorities. We will keep you informed of official notice and detailed campus arrival and departure protocols as soon as we are able.

We are excited to see our EC students again soon!

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we continue to work through plans to come back together again.

Blessings Now & Always,

Dr. Gerdes
