It's official then - April 6 start.

How're we feeling about working overtime/Saturdays to make up for the lost time? My wife tells me it's a distinct possibility.

If there's more outbreaks could the start of the school year be delayed further?

Doesn't this mean that the summer holiday will be untouched and that they will just reduce the amount of teaching days?

Did they mention about hagwons or other private institutions? Does this rule also apply to them?

I was told the summer vacation length will be shortened.

Imagine no break at all due to having to do English camps.

For the NET and some students just straight school until January.
