    We were in school today getting ready for the kids to come in part time on Monday. Half online/half in school.

    But the government said no. So it's back to online for next week.

    Interesting... Our kids school was preparing to do the same based on a govt. direction earlier this week they could.

    Is it just for your area that you know of or have they changed the whole thing?

    So, every international school I *think*.

    But there are rumours some in BKK still plan on opening up but the news was pretty late in.

    Gov schools were supposed to open, teachers called in to prepare with measures of the day, then last I heard they got the next two weeks off because nobody has a clue what ministerial diktats are going to look like hour by hour.

    As I said before, military should stick to what they do best, march to drums and beat up political opponents.

    My daughter's school put out a questionnaire this week asking how parents felt about their kids going back to school if they are allowed to open. I have no idea what the feeling is but it certainly got the parents talking on the school Line group.

    My daughter's school year ends towards the end of June and the last two weeks of term will be exam weeks. Personally I can't really see the point in opening just for maybe a week of tuition and think they may as well leave it until the end of August and the new school year.

    Exactly same scenario as with us save for they also decided to extend the term.

    The poor admin guy who sent the emails out was obviously being harried and inundated with responses (for and against) and started sending them at odd times like 5:30. Poor bastard probably losing sleep over it.

    This it what I was thinking about schools reopening at this time. There seems little point. Also schools in S. Korea are closing after being open for a very short time because there has been a spike in infections.

    Just seems not worth the upheaval when the term is drawing to a close anyway.

    For our circumstances, with 4 weeks left just to have the kids in part time would be amazing. Not really for any academic reasons but for their mental health and a good finish to a tough year.

    Also, I'm pretty sick of my house.
