As there are rising concerns around international visitors and returning students from closed overseas schools, TES announced on 18 March that classroom learning will switch to digital learning from 23 March to 1 April. This will be followed by the school’s regular Spring break (2 April to 10 April). TES is scheduled to resume normal classroom teaching on 13 April 2020.
The decision is made for the safety of our students and our community as many returned students or visitors have close connections with our community. Even with the school imposing campus access restriction to the affected students, without accurate information, the school simply could not guarantee safety going forward especially we now have to check inbound travellers to early March. We salute the Taiwanese authorities for keeping the island safe so far and feel that we must also do our best to prevent any potential spread. With the reasons above, we made the decision to go into digital learning for the safety of our students and our community.
TES offers age appropriate and subject based digital learning content and support. We request our community members to follow the communication from the head of your sections to support continuous learning and to demonstrate to our students the resilience of our community in times of challenge.
