The Shanghai Education Commission announced yesterday the reopening of schools later this month, with students in the final year of senior and junior high schools preparing for exams set to return to school on April 27. Higher education institutions and secondary vocational schools can also arrange to receive soon-to-be graduates the same day.

All schools in Shanghai should be ready to welcome students in other grades in batches before May 6, director of the Commission Lu Jing said, but the date for them to reopen will be decided based on developments of the epidemic and announced later. 

For now, there will be no changes to school holidays or make-up dates. “At present, we will not ask schools to teach on weekends or delay summer vacation,” said Lu. “We will carry out follow-up monitoring and change teaching plans if necessary.”

Guangdong authorities made a similar announcement to Shanghai yesterday, while students in Guizhou and Qinghai provinces, as well as the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, started returning to school back in March.

So far, only Beijing and Hubei province, considered the coronavirus epicenter, have not revealed their school reopening plan.

There have been no announcements from any international schools in the city so far, but the announcement can be taken as a positive indication that we will be hearing from them in the not-too-distant future.
