We are doing our own assessments, although the teachers have the choice of doing theirs, for our first semester students who are all from Europe or Latin America. They will be leaving as scheduled with program issued final reports and certificates of enrolment.
Our new second semester students will arrive as scheduled and we will spend the first week of February doing orientation activities, including programming, along with a few team building recreational activities.
Actually it will be a pleasant change having some time with the second semester students before they start. The agents were certainly happy with these plans.
I hope this helps.
