Will Taipei Start Summer Vacation Early? 疫情嚴峻提早放暑假? 台北市教育局:再觀察

All of Taipei's elementary, junior high, and senior high schools are conducting classes virtually this week, and the issue of whether to start the summer vacation early is under discussion.


Tseng Tsan-chin, Commissioner, Department of Education, Taipei City: “This issue will slowly develop, so further observation is needed. We'll continue observing. Elementary schools are offering basic care services at present, and 1,334 students in 185 classes are physically present at schools because their parents can't take care of them. We will continue offering basic care services.”

Ko Wen-je, Mayor, Taipei City: “The most troublesome are those complementary measures that must be enacted after schools resume classes. If one student tests positive, what will be done with the other students? Classes are stopped for three days if one student tests positive, so school keeps starting and stopping. This isn't a solution.”

Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je is currently isolating at home for seven days after testing positive, and is attending meetings virtually. During this meeting, he was seen blowing his nose occasionally. The city's Department of Education said further observation is needed as the decision to start the summer vacation early will affect the upcoming academic year and school transfers, and graduates.

 

 



台北市教育局長曾燦金說:「慢慢這個議題就會出來,所以要再觀察,最近再觀察一下,現有目前小學有基本照顧,我們也開了185班,有1334個學生都是送到校來,因為爸爸媽媽沒有照顧,我們還是做基本照顧。」

台北市長柯文哲認為:「最麻煩的就是,學校恢復上課以後的那些配套措施,有一個確診,其他同學怎麼處理,一個確診要停3天,學期就是停停上上,我覺得這也不是辦法。」

而台北市長柯文哲確診後,進行7天居家隔離,仍舊透過視訊會議。由於暑假過後,會牽涉到學年、轉學等問題,若放暑假後,新學年度等於跨了新學年,因此對於提早放暑假一事,北市府持續觀察中。
