Most Provinces in China Have Reopened Schools Except

Starting April 27, final year students in grades 9 and 12 in Shanghai will finally be returning to school after weeks of closure across the country. While all schools across the city are expected to reopen by May 6, when exactly students will be required to return to their respective schools has yet to be announced.

It was also reported that students in junior high, high school, and secondary vocational schools in Hebei province would begin taking their college entrance exams on May 7.

This news comes after several provinces had already begun reopening their school doors for students, which we covered in a separate article: More Places Have Announced The Reopening of Schools

Jilin, Heilongjiang, Anhui, Fujian, Jiangxi, Henan, Hunan, Hainan, Sichuan, Shaanxi, Guangxi, Jiangsu and Shandong provinces all resumed classes on April 7.

Liaoning and Zhejiang, on the other hand, will start school again in batches as of April 13.

Meanwhile, the official Weibo of the Chongqing Municipal Education Commission announced final year students in middle and high school would be expected back in class on April 20.

In Guangdong province, senior students in grades 9 and 12 will be welcomed back in class on April 27, while other students in primary and middle school will not be returning until after May 11.

In the meantime, any other school at any given level which has not yet been ordered to reopen by their local government will be maintaining online classes and training until announced otherwise. 

So far, only Beijing and Hubei province have not yet reopened their schools nor planned a set date for when they would be welcoming students back.

But rest assured, you will know about it from us as soon as updated news break out. 

Until then stay safe!
