HKA eNews: Issue 1

Dear Hong Kong Academy Community,

Welcome back for the new school year! We’re looking forward to seeing everyone next week.
Please note: this year, school begins on a Tuesday:

  • Tuesday, 16th August is a HALF DAY
  • Wednesday, 17th August is a FULL DAY.
We return to our regular schedule the week of 22nd August with a half day on Wednesday.
hkaEats! You’ve heard it said that there’s no free lunch. But next week we’ll celebrate the school’s new food service, hkaEATS, with just that. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 17th to 19th August, lunch will be FREE for all students. The staff has been enjoying the food this week and we’re eager for the students to also experience the tasty, healthy options available.

You will soon receive an email with registration information for the hkaEATS online system, called "Campus", which allows students to use their ID cards for meals and snacks. Using Campus, you will be able to pre-pay and select meals for PS students, add value for SS students and note any dietary restrictions.
The start of the school year always brings a deluge of information and sometimes it also comes with a deluge of water. Please refresh your memory on HKA’s weather procedures in the event of heavy rain or a typhoon.

And for a refresher on our morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up routines, please consult the 'Arrivals & Dismissals' section of the Family Guidelines. And thanks in advance for not parking on Wai Man Road in front of the school during these periods. The safety of our students is our top priority and using the bus stop in front of the school presents a serious hazard. If you are picking up your child(ren) by car, please proceed through the bus bay on Mei Yuen Street or park you car in one of the nearby lots and meet your child inside the main entrance.
