Recently, the outbreak of coronavirus pneumonia in Wuhan spread throughout the country and even to some other countries in the world. Our school has actively taken some related measures. As of now, all the Limai teachers and students are in good health, without any suspected cases or abnormal conditions.
Our school has formulated a school epidemic prevention and control work plan in order to actively do a good job in prevention and control and ensure the health of parents and children. The various departments will work under the careful arrangement of school leadership and have prepared an orderly work plan for the special period:
On the third day of Chinese New Year, our school set up "leading group to deal with the major epidemic" and held video meetings of the school’s mainleaders to arrange and implement the preparations for delaying the school opening date during the epidemic. According to the instructions of the education committee, we’ve made relevant plans to ensure the implementation of education and teaching courses before the beginning of the semester.
The school office collects and organizes the health information of the entire school staff and students, and reports to the Board of Education in a timely manner.
In order not to delay teaching work, Mr. Laurent(Human Resources Director of foreign teacher), Dr. Paul (Director of Calvert high school), and Mr. Adam (Director of moral department)have taken into consideration the situation of the grounding of international airlines, changed their tickets and made plans in hopes to arrive at school earlier. Mr Mark (Director of Calvert),in order to return to school on time, cancelled his previous ticket and bought a new one going through Australia. They promote rational treatment of the disease and personal protection measures in the foreign teachers' group every day.
During the epidemic, the logistics department arranged that the guards monitor the temperature of the staff daily and record, actively purchase anti-epidemic materials such as disinfectants, masks, temperature guns, etc. to prepare for school, and regularly clean and disinfect various campus facilities.
