So will Goldilocks be found guilty or innocent? Join us in the Storybook Court to find out the verdict of this long-anticipated story comes to a close.
這個為大家熟知的童話故事是令人興奮也充滿了娛樂性,因為金髮女孩被帶到法庭去面對她破壞和闖入三隻小熊的小屋的指控。 在急躁的法官要求法院下令之後,由律師接管,許多童話人物開始述說從他們那邊知道的故事版本。
那麼Goldilocks會被認定有罪或無罪? 請來觀賞我們的故事書法庭,查明這個長期預期的故事的最終判決書。

Air pollution has become a frequent issue in Taichung and has gained increased attention in recent days. The school is fully aware of our city’s deteriorating air quality and would like to ensure parents that we are taking appropriate steps to ensure your child’s safety. Our campus safety monitors, recess monitors, athletic directors and PE teachers use reliable sources to accurately measure the air quality index (AQI). AQI is a nationally and internationally recognized standard measurement that indicates air pollution levels.
空氣污染已成為台中經常遇到的問題,近日來受到越來越多的關注。 學校充分意識到我們的城市空氣品質日益惡化,並希望確保家長知道我們正在採取適當措施確保您的孩子的安全。 我們的校園安全監控員,下課時間監控人員,體育總監和體育教師使用可靠的資源準確地測量空氣質量指標(AQI)。 空氣質量指標是國家和國際上公認的指示空氣污染水平的標準指標。

Morrison currently monitors AQI from the following sources:

  • The Taiwan Environmental Protection Administration (a website utilized by Taichung’s Education Department)
  • A smart phone app by AirVisual (the largest international air quality database)
  • And a portable air quality meter (PAQM)* which measures AQI on site and at ground level.

The PAQM measurements have shown remarkable correlation with the other two sources.  Although correlation is consistent, actual AQI measurements from each source may differ to some degree. This may be due to factors such as wind direction, wind speed, local dust and emissions and specific location of measuring device. Nonetheless, to ensure maximum safety, the school will always use the highest, most dangerous reading to direct our outdoor activity guidelines. Each of these sources takes the AQI measurement and labels it according to the following categories, which constitutes school protocol:

  • GREEN – good to go
  • 綠色 – 安全範圍
  • YELLOW – exercise discretion and be sensitive to students with asthma or other related breathing difficulties (assign alternative inside exercises for such students)
  • 黃色 – 行使自由裁量權,對哮喘或其他有呼吸困難的敏感學生(為這些學生分配室內活動)
  • RED to PURPLE – cancel outdoor recess and outdoor PE / after-school sport (indoor should still be fine)
  • 紅色到紫色 – 取消戶外體育課 /課後運動(可從事室內活動)

We trust that this brief will bring some peace of mind. Please do not hesitate to share your concerns if you have any. We welcome your input and feedback. The safety of your children are of the utmost importance to us.
我相信這封信會帶給家長一些安心。 如果您有任何疑問,請不要猶豫分享您的疑慮。 我們歡迎您的意見和反饋。 你們孩子的安全對我們至關重要。
