The school I teach at will be closed from Friday, October 30 to Wednesday, November 4 for what has been described as a "National Emergency"
There have been 29 confirmed cases of H1N1 at my school. Last night, my friend called me to tell me that the school she teaches at will also be closed for nearly a week as there were 100 confirmed cases of the virus. Many of the children at school are wearing masks, and their homeroom teachers have them wash their hands very often during the day.
Before you start thinking I'm lucky to have nearly a week off work, think again!
Teachers still have to go to work. Of course, there are no classes to teach... but we still have to be at school - either "lesson planning" or "gathering teaching materials". I don't really anticipate being 'bored' as such, as I have plenty to catch up on. Anyways... that's the latest from my side!
