Dear American School Community,
Given the extraordinary circumstances and the latest Greek government directives regarding the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), we are forced to implement new measures that will be in effect starting Monday, March 16th and will remain until further notice:
 
  1. Optional School trips are canceled. Further travel in Greece is not advised.
     
  2. All tea talks, lectures, seminars and other gatherings are canceled for the foreseeable future.
     
  3. All ASCSA grounds will be closed. The guard, will be using a non-contact thermometer in order to monitor everyone entering the School. If at any time you suffer from any of the symptoms of the COVID-19 virus (fever, dry cough, difficulty in breathing), you should immediately check with the School's doctor.

    * Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.
     
  4. Both libraries of the American School (Blegen and Gennadius) will be closed to everyone except School staff, starting Monday, March 16th.
     
  5. All meetings with School staff on ASCSA grounds, will only be possible upon prior appointment.
     
  6. All Regular and Associate members are required to report to the School regularly, follow the above directives and practice all mandated precautions.
     
We strongly advise that you follow the ministry's suggestion in taking all measures to reduce spread in the wider community. 
 
Thank you for your understanding.
Further updates will be shared via our website, social media and e-mail.
 
Yours sincerely,
Jenifer Neils
Director
