FAQ

請問校車接送範圍及接送時間? What is the school bus pick-up area and time?

A : 校車接送範圍大約為台北市區、士林區,南邊至古亭捷運站,東邊至內湖。若住家於新北或台北北市外圍,則需家長自行接送至靠近台北市區的接送點,或是捷運站。
因為每一年參加學生皆不同,所以校車接送時間待校車司機安排路線後,約於夏令營開學前一、二周以電子郵件方式通知家長。

 

Our school bus pick-up service covers most of Taipei city, Shilin district, south to Guting MRT station, and east to Neihu area. If your house is located at New Taipei City or the outskirts of Taipei City, you may need to take your kid(s) to Taipei City or to a pick-up point.
We have different students and bus routes every year, so the school bus pick-up time will vary every year. We will send email notification to parents about the pick-up point and time 1-2 weeks before the summer school starts.

遇上颱風有補課嗎? Do we make up summer school for typhoon day-off?

A : 暑假期間若遇上颱風,夏令營會根據台北市是否上課而跟近其決定,因天然災害造成學校停課,夏令營不補課。

 

If there’s a typhoon during summer school period, TAAS summer school will follow the decision of Taipei City Government. If Taipei City announces a typhoon day off, we will not have summer school. We will not make up classes for natural disaster day off.

我的小孩英文仍須加強,可以跟得上夏令營的進度嗎? My kid’s English ability needs a lot of improvement. Can I still sign him/her up for summer school?
