Korean School of Federal Way

KSFW is a Korean language school that focuses on the four elements of language acquisition (speaking, listening, reading, and writing), while also offering cultural enrichment classes, such as taekwondo, choir, and samulnori. Classes are open to pre-K to 12th graders, as well as adults. We meet at the Saghalie Middle School campus in Federal Way on Saturdays from 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM during the school year (September - June).

Dear Students and Families,

In order to deter the rapid spread of novel coronavirus, Korean School of Federal Way will remain closed through April 25 in accordance with Governor Jay Inslee's decree calling for the emergency shutdown of all public and private schools in Washington state.
This and other aggressive public safety measures have necessitated dramatic shifts in our lifestyles and behaviors, leaving many of us in a state of heightened unease and concern.
While it is frustrating that we cannot predict when this pandemic will finally subside, we must all rally together as a community to take care of ourselves and one another by practicing proper hygiene and effective social distancing.
Though we may be faced with a protracted battle against COVID-19, if we follow these good practices day by day and week by week, then there is no storm we cannot weather together and the day will soon arrive when we can all gather once more to learn at Korean school.

Over the past few weeks, KSFW's board and administrators have been discussing at-home learning alternatives that will enable our students to continue their Korean language studies during this period of extended school closure.
We have decided that the most viable solution is to mail out a six-week study packet to each of our students.
Our teachers are currently working on compiling study packets for their classes and we expect to mail them out to students and families by this weekend.
Students will be able to submit their completed study packets and receive feedback from their teachers when Korean school resumes after the six-week closure.
Please be sure to check our school website on a regular basis as teachers will be posting additional instructions and supplemental learning materials on their class webpage every week.

We are fully aware that guided at-home study is a less-than-perfect substitute for learning in a classroom with real-time teacher-to-student and peer-to-peer interaction.
With this understanding, our school board and administrators are considering different options for making up the projected 6-day deficit in our usual 15-session semester.
Please stay tuned for an announcement regarding this matter. We will share additional updates as needed while we continue to monitor developments in the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thank you, as always, for your ongoing love and support.
We hope that our students and families remain healthy, safe, and resilient during this most challenging of times.

With warmest regards,

Hee Jung Lee
Principal, Korean School of Federal Way

페더럴웨이 통합한국학교 가족 여러분!

COVID-19 의 급속한 전파를 막기위해 워싱턴주 전체에 휴교령이 내려짐에따라 저희 학교도 4월 25일까지 휴교를 연장하게 됐음을 알려드립니다.
코로나바이러스 감염 확산의 소용돌이가 워낙 다방면으로 영향을 미치고 있는 까닭에 학부모님들의 심려가 무척 크시리라 생각됩니다.
언제쯤이나 모든 일상이 정상화 될 수 있을런지 예측조차 할 수 없는 현재상황이 심히 안타깝지만, 모두 합심해서 서로를 배려하고 건강을 챙겨가며
하루 하루 지내다보면 ... 여느때처럼 학교에서 환한 얼굴로 반갑게 마주할 날이 속히 오리라 믿습니다.

한가지 중요한 안내말씀을 드리고자 합니다.
통합한국학교 학생들의 한국어 교육을 책임지고 있는 저희들 나름대로 어떻게하면 휴교기간의 공백기를 최대한 메울 수 있을까 고민한 끝에,
학생들이 가정에서도 한국어 학습을 계속할 수 있도록 "6주간 (3/21, 3/28, 4/4, 4/11, 4/18, 4/25) 가정학습지"를
학급별로 제작하여 모든 가정에 우송해드리기로 결정했습니다.
선생님들께서 심혈을 기우려 준비하신 학습지는 이번 주말까지 우편배달이 완료될 예정이고, 학생들은 6주간 가정학습지를 마친 후,
개학날 완성본을 제출하여 담임선생님으로부터 평가를 받게됩니다.
그 외에 필요한 사항이나 보충할 내용은 학교 웹싸이트 학급별 페이지를 통해 매주 전달될 예정입니다.

한가지 덧붙여 당부의 말씀드립니다.
봄학기 15주 수업일수에 불가피한 차질이 빚어짐에따라 학교측은 이에 대처할 몇가지 방안을 염두에 두고있으며,
앞으로의 사태추이를 예의 주시해가며 업데이트 해드릴 예정입니다.
아무쪼록, 우리 통합한국학교 가족들 모두 건강하고 지혜롭게 이 어려운 시기를 잘 넘겨내길 소망합니다.
대단히 감사합니다!

Dear Students and Families,

We at Korean School of Federal Way are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in our region and elsewhere around the world, and understand that this is a significant topic of concern for many in our community.
During this public health emergency, KSFW remains firmly committed to ensuring the health and safety of our students, staff, and volunteers.
In order to honor this commitment, we are adhering to the safety protocols recommended by state and national health officials.
One such recommendation is that community organizations should avoid creating large gatherings.
Since our school is comprised of nearly 300 individuals (ranging from pre-K through adult and hailing from all across the Puget Sound region), we believe it is necessary to suspend school operations during the month of March as we continue to monitor developments relating to COVID-19.
We repeat, Korean School of Federal Way will be closing for the next three weeks (3/7, 3/14, and 3/21) due to the local coronavirus outbreak.
Our school-wide speech contest originally scheduled for tomorrow, March 7, will be held at a later date.
In addition, the NAKS-NW Speech and Academic Competition scheduled for March 14 will be postponed to April 25.
We will send further school communications as developments arise.
Thank you for your cooperation in helping us keep our students and community safe!

Sincerely,

Hee Jung Lee
Principal, Korean School of Federal Way

페더럴웨이 통합한국학교 가족 여러분,

COVID-19 사태로 인해 얼마나 심려가 크신지요?
페더럴웨이 지역만이 아닌 여러 다른 지역에서 출석을 하고있는 다양한 연령대의 재학생들에게
안전한 학습공간을 확보해주고자 긴급히 손세정제를 비롯한 각종 위생용품과 소독제품을 준비하긴 했지만,
여전히 불안해하시는 학부모님들이 너무 많으십니다.
이에 본교는 보건당국을 비롯한 여러기관에서 보내오는 다양한 정보 및 공지사항들을 신중히 참고하여
아래와같이 긴급 휴교 결정을 내리게 됐습니다.

적어도 앞으로 3주 정도는 지나야 사태가 가라앉는 기미가 보이지않을까 기대해보며,
우리 페더럴웨이 통합한국학교의 300명이 넘는 학생 교사 TA 스태프들의 안전을 지키기위해
이번 토요일부터 시작해서 앞으로 3주간 임시휴교를 하고자 합니다.
School Closures : 3-7 3-14 3-21
3-7 예정되었던 "교내말하기대회" 는 잠정적으로 연기하며.
3-14 예정됐던 NAKS-NW 주최 "말하기대회 및 학력어휘경시대회" 는 4-25 로
연기되었습니다.

휴교 기간 동안 지속적으로 COVID-19 감염 및 전파 상황을 살펴가며, 학사일정을 추후 공지해드리도록 하겠습니다.
아무쪼록 페더럴웨이 통합한국학교 가족 모두가 이 어려운 고비를 건강하게 잘 이겨내기를 간절히 바랍니다!

On Jan. 18, KSFW held its much-anticipated Market Day event where students spent their hard-earned play money on tasty foods—such as chicken teriyaki and spicy rice cakes—as well as on a wide selection of items—including school supplies, toys, books, and Korean souvenirs. We'd like to give a HUGE shout-out to all of our parent volunteers for being so generous with your time and energy. None of this would have been possible without your love and support. 모두모두 대단히 감사합니다!
