Arrangements of the Resumption of Face-to-Face Classes in Kumon Education Centres
Hong Kong and Macau
1st September 2020
Preparing for the resumption of face-to-face classes！
Welcoming the new start of the new school year！
Dear Kumon Students and Parents,
Thank you for your continuous support and trust to the Kumon Method of Learning! We can finally resume Face-to-Face Classes! Let us welcome the new start of the new school year together!
According to the guidelines announced by the EDB, “Other Schools” (including Private Schools Offering Non-Formal Curriculum) should resume face-to-face classes by phases starting from 16th September. The number of students in each class session at any time will be limited. Schools can fully resume face-to-face classes starting from 29th September.
Therefore, starting from 16th September, Kumon instructors may arrange the resumption of face-to-face classes by phases for some students. As a transitional arrangement, our instructors may also re-arrange students’ class schedule to avoid crowd gathering and to minimise the risk of viral transmission. The final arrangement for the resumption of face-to-face classes may vary according to individual Kumon Education Centres’ operation. Please wait patiently for the notification from the instructor. Parents are also welcome to approach our instructors for the relevant arrangements.
All Kumon Education Centres will strictly put in place all the following preventive measures. Cooperation from parents and students are highly appreciated.
For environmental hygiene, we will thoroughly clean and disinfect the centre premises. We will alert staff and students of the importance of maintaining personal hygiene (especially hand hygiene) and that of wearing of face masks. In principle, all personnel, including staff, students, parents and visitors, must wear face masks when they are in the centre premises, in order to reduce the risk of viral transmission.
Our centres will strictly implement below preventive measures:
At centre entrances, we will check the body temperature of all personnel, and urge them to disinfect their hands with 70%-80% alcohol-based handrubs before entering the centre.
All personnel, including staff, students, parents and visitors, must wear face masks when they are in the centre.
If any persons are found to have fever or have respiratory symptoms, they must not be allowed to enter the centre.
To minimise the risk of infection, eating or drinking is prohibited inside the centre.
We will thoroughly clean the classrooms after the dismissal of each batch of students, in order to ensure students can learn in a hygienic, clean and safe environment.
We will ensure a proper social distance between students.
For seating arrangements, we will maximise the use of space in classrooms to ensure proper physical distances among students.
Besides, we will remind parents/students to avoid gathering at centre entrances when waiting to pick up their children/before start of lessons so as to minimise the risk of viral transmission.
