Kitakyushu Municipal elementary and junior high school Going to decentralized school from 5th with prevention of corona infection June 3 19:07
The Kitakyushu City Board of Education is a municipal elementary and junior high school, from the 5th to the 18th of this month, according to the grade and class, in order to prevent infection of children, while infection confirmation to the new coronavirus is being confirmed in the city one after another. It has been announced that distributed school attendance will be carried out by shifting school days and school hours.
In Kitakyushu City, a total of 119 infections were confirmed on 11 consecutive days up to the 2nd, of which 12 are elementary and junior high school students who attend five municipal elementary and junior high schools.
In response to this situation, the Kitakyushu City Board of Education has been working on the municipal elementary and junior high schools, which have been holding classes only in the morning since the 25th of last month to prevent the parents' anxiety and the infection of children. From the day to the 18th of this month, we announced that we will carry out distributed school attendance by shifting school days and school hours according to grade and class.
In order to avoid the so-called 3 congestion, the number of children/students in each class going to school at once should be 20 or less. Also, since there are many opportunities for contact with club activities at junior high schools, we will discontinue them for the time being.
For municipal kindergartens, special needs schools, and high schools, we will ask each school to decide what to do.
At the press conference, Mr. Hiromi Tajima, the deputy director of the Kitakyushu City Board of Education, said, "While it is necessary to reduce the risk of infection to the maximum extent, it is the school's mission to continue learning, so we will carry out a two-week decentralized school attendance. I decided.”
In addition, in relation to the confirmed infection of children and students in five elementary and junior high schools in the city, "I heard that a lot of rumors are flying around in some infected areas. By blaming people and their families, I want to properly convey to the children that they should not hurt their hearts at the school site. I want to do it."
