페더럴웨이 통합한국학교 가족여러분,
우리 통합한국학교 가족분들 모두 건강하게 잘 지내고계시리라 믿습니다.
페더럴웨이 교육구가 100% 비대면 원격수업으로 2020-2021 학년도를 시작하기로 결정함에 따라서
본교도 이번 새학년도 1학기를 줌화상수업으로 진행하게 됐습니다.
얼떨결에 시작했던 지난 학기 줌화상수업보다 훨씬 향상된 원격수업을 학생들에게 제공할 수 있도록
철저히 준비하겠습니다. 또한 원격수업의 단점을 최대한 보완하기위해 다양한 계획을 세움으로써
학생들과 학부모님들의 고충을 줄이고 즐거운 한국어 학습시간이 되도록 최선을 다하겠습니다.
한편, 장기간 지속되고있는 COVID-19 Pandemic 속에서도 한국어 학습에 대한 의지를 굽히지않는
학생들과 학부모님들에 대한 감사의 뜻으로 이번 학기 등록금을 대폭 낮췄습니다.
약속드린대로, 지난 봄학기 (2학기) 등록했던 학생들은 50% 가 할인된 $50 만 내면 되겠습니다.
예전처럼 학교에서 맛난 점심을 먹으며 친구들이랑 즐겁게 공부할 수 있는 기쁜 그날을 기약하며,
그때까지 멈춤없이 꾸준히 한국어 실력을 쌓아나갈 수 있기를 간절히 바랍니다.

이희정 교장 드림
Dear Students and Families,
We hope you have all been enjoying these balmy summer days while staying healthy and safe.
For the past several months, we at Korean School of Federal Way have been monitoring the trajectory of the COVID-19 outbreak in King County and the latest reports from the Washington State Department of Health in order to determine how we can safely proceed with instruction in the fall.
Given that infections are still on the rise and nearly 1,500 lives have been claimed in Washington state alone, we and other educators in the region have come to the conclusion that reopening school buildings for in-person learning poses a significant health risk for our students, families, staff, and the broader community.
Our close partner, Federal Way Public Schools, is moving forward with 100% remote instruction in September, and we at KSFW are also using a distance learning approach with Zoom virtual classes this fall.
The remote learning model we are implementing in September will be vastly improved from that which our students experienced in the spring.
We have been refining our model based on the feedback and critiques shared with our teachers about their virtual classes from spring semester.
Moreover, all of our teachers will undergo further professional development training on best practices for remote instruction.
Our class schedule on Saturdays will be compressed into two hours of intensive language instruction, eliminating lunchtime and enrichment period (e.g. taekwondo, samulnori, traditional dance, and choir).
Tuition for fall semester will be reduced to $100 per student to reflect this change.
Those students who were enrolled in spring semester when KSFW was temporarily closed will receive a 50% discount on tuition for this fall ($50 per student).
As always, we will approach any new developments in the COVID-19 pandemic with a commitment to the health and well-being of our school community and on providing the highest quality educational experience for our students.
Thank you, students and families, for your ongoing commitment to language learning and intellectual growth in spite of the many challenges presented by this pandemic.
We look forward to welcoming you to Korean school in September!
Information regarding Fall Semester:
- Fall semester is from Sep. 12, 2020 to Jan. 23, 2021.
We will have a drive-thru welcome event and textbook distribution on Sep. 5, 2020. (More details to come!)
- There will be two hours of Zoom virtual classes each Saturday when school is in session.
These two hours will be devoted to intensive Korean language instruction.
There will be no enrichment period for the time being.
- Tuition has been reduced to $100 per student for fall semester.
Students who were enrolled in spring semester when our school was temporarily closed will receive a 50% discount to be applied towards tuition this fall.
- The registration period is from July 27 to August 16.
