Okayama City Reopens School on April 7
Okayama City announced on April 6 that it will resume Okayama Elementary and Junior High School and Okayama Korakukan High School on April 7 on its website.
Okayama City's Thoughts on "School Reopening"
Okayama City Elementary and Junior High School and Okayama Korakukan High School will resume from April 7.
 Thoroughly avoiding the "three density" of sealing, crowding and closeness, this week will be only in the morning and no club activities will be conducted.
 In some cases, parents have become more concerned about the possibility of transmission to children. Therefore, if a parent or guardian informs the school that he or she will not go to school, the child /student will not be treated as absent, but will be treated as suspended.
Reason for judging resumption
(1) There are currently six infected people in Okayama City, one of whom has no known infection route, and is not prevalent in the city. Okayama City falls under the category of “confirmed infection” according to the regional classification defined by the National Coronavirus Infectious Disease Control Experts Group. Activities will be implemented. "

 (2) Looking at the status of infection throughout the country, it is undeniable that Okayama will spread this infection in the future. Assuming that each school will be temporarily closed in the future, it is necessary to take appropriate guidance and easy-to-consult relationships within the school now. Therefore, it is necessary to restart the school, the homeroom teacher and the students confirm each other, and create a school, grade, and class organization.
