政府の緊急事態宣言及び大阪府の緊急事態措置が解除されます。実に長い自宅待機でした。このような非常事態は全く初めてのことです。目に見えない未知のウィルスの感染に怯えながら、ひたすら家に閉じ籠ってニュースを見ていたことでしょう。
学校も休校となり、5月の連休までは大急ぎで用意した課題プリントで自宅学習を続けてもらいました。その後、オンライン学習を始めることが出来ましたが、準備する時間もなく始めざるを得なかったため、十分に計画したものとは言えるものではありませんでした。

緊急事態宣言が解除されますが、新型コロナウィルスの感染が終結したのではありません。感染の状況が一定の落ち着きを見せてきたという状況に過ぎません。これからの焦点は、感染再拡大をいかに防ぐかということに移ります。日常生活の中で何ができるのか、何をすべきなのかということです。
政府の専門家会議の提言によると、これから先を見据えた「新しい生活様式」が必要であるとされています。密閉、密集、密接の「3密」の回避を基本として、人との間隔を空け、会話は真正面を避け、症状がなくてもマスクを着用し、帰宅後は手や顔を洗うこと。これはこれまで行ってきたことを継続しようということです。

それでは、学校生活における「新しい生活様式」とはどのようなものでしょうか。体温を毎朝測り、風邪症状がある際は登校せずに自宅で休むことは当然のことですが、授業においては感染予防のための工夫が必要です。
授業開始の2週間程度は分散授業、即ち、クラスを2つに分けて午前と午後に分かれて登校し、20名程度のクラスで授業を行います。同時に、自宅にいる間はオンライン学習を続けて、1日に6コマ分の学習をします。

問題はその後です。6月後半からは通常のクラス、40名で授業を行うことになります。生徒たちが待ちに待ったクラブ活動も再開です。この時に感染再拡大をいかにして防ぐか、さらなる工夫は出来るか、より計画的・効果的なオンライン学習が出来るか。
これからもう一度気を引き締めて、基本的なところをしっかりと押さえながら、学校における「新しい生活様式」に向けた積極的な予防に全力で取り組みたいと思っています。

【English version】”A New Lifestyle”

The government’s emergency declaration and Osaka Prefecture’s emergency measures that have forced us to stay home since April have been lifted. This is the first time that we have been in this kind of state of emergency and we have spent every day watching the news on TV, frightened by this new and unknown viral infection.

In addition, the school has been closed, and until the Golden Week holidays in May, you were asked to study at home study with assignments that were prepared in somewhat of a hurry. Since then, you have got able to start learning online, but this kind of learning cannot be regarded as completely sufficient as teachers did not initially have a great amount of time to prepare nor learn all of the skills necessary for effective online instruction.

The emergency declaration has been lifted, but the threat posed by the new coronavirus infection has not ended. We have now moved to situation where we have reached a certain level of calmness and the focus now will shift to how to prevent re-infection, and what we can and should do in our daily lives to keep as safe as possible.

According to recommendations made by government experts, it has become necessary to think about a “new lifestyle” while looking to the future. This is based on avoiding dense crowding, congested places, and close contact with others, keeping distance between yourself and others, avoiding close conversations with those directly in front of you, wearing a mask even if you have no symptoms, and washing your hands and face upon returning home. Essentially, this means continuing to do what you have been doing so far.

The question then is, how does this “new lifestyle” apply to school life? It is natural to take your temperature every morning and to rest at home if you are ill, but in the classroom, special measures need to be implemented to prevent the spread of any infection.

For about two weeks from when regular class lessons resume, students will be separated into two groups – one group that will attend classes in the morning, and one that will attend classes in the afternoon. No more than 20 students will be in attendance at any one time. At the same time, you will continue to study online at home for 6 periods per day.

The greatest concern is what happens after these two weeks. From the latter half of June, regular classes will start with all students in attendance at the same time. In addition, the club activities that students have been waiting for will resume. For now, we need to think about how we can prevent any re-infection from spreading, how we can further adapt, and how we can conduct better planned and more effective online lessons.

From now on, I would like everyone to remain vigilant, focus on the basics, and make every possible effort to actively usher in this new lifestyle at school.
