In view of the then epidemic situation of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Education Bureau (EDB) announced in early August that all schools in Hong Kong should suspend all face-to-face teaching activities upon the commencement of the new school year. During the period, schools should help students learn at home through various modes of teaching. As the epidemic has shown signs of subsiding recently, and having regard to the health experts’ advice, we have the basis for schools to prepare for the resumption of face-to-face classes in two phases in the second half of September. Face-to-face classes will be conducted on a half-day basis in order to reduce the risk of infection.
1st Phase September 23 (Wednesday) S.1, S.5 and S.6, P.1. P.5 and P.6, Upper Kindergarten (K.3)
2nd Phase separately. September 29 (Tuesday) S.2 to S.4, P.2 to P.4, Nursery Class and Lower Kindergarten (K.1 and K.2)
