Teachers' Declarations

A plan to protect our teachers, so they can protect our students.

Teacher Health & Social Distancing

The health, hygiene, and well-being of our teachers is of extreme important to us, because they are the reason people come to Skyrock. As an international group in our adopted country of Taiwan, we’ve designed procedures to ensure that we go above and beyond what has been recommended by the CDC, Taiwan MOE, and also what local and international schools in Taipei are currently doing.

Our approach to protecting our teachers, which in turn protects our students too, involves three main parts: 1) effective social distancing, 2) the thorough monitoring of daily health and 3) commitments to sanitizing our spaces, equipment, and accessories.

While some of the social distancing measures outlined in our checklist below might seem a bit extreme, Skyrock’s management and teachers both agree that now is the time to act with precaution. Since all of our teachers are employed as full-time employees with full benefits and are at Skyrock to build a career, they feel a strong connection to our company and community. They’re always prepared to go above and beyond to do what they believe is best for their students!

As role models to their students, Skyrock’s teachers understand that their students often mimic and emulate their behaviour. Therefore they understand how important it is to demonstrate and encourage best practices around personal hygiene and cleanliness. In addition, to use this as a teaching moment about the importance of being mindful of the role they play in the collective health of their peers, and in times like these, the whole country.
