School Holidays to be Reduced

Provinces including Sichuan have stressed that the total teaching time of the semester won’t be affected by the breakout, which is to say that they will take weekends and summer vacation to make up.

Among them, Zigong and Panzhihua, two cities in Sichuan have announced that all students of the primary, secondary and high schools will have to attend classes on Saturdays, and the summer vacation will be reduced.

Note that international schools will most likely opt for summer school to offset time out of the classrooms.
