Remote learning depends on the school.

Parents are able to take epidemic leave (or something of that nature).

this might be a dumb question but does this apply to buxibans as well?

No. It’s not a dumb question.
Yes. It applies for buxibans as well.

I still think closing the schools and extending the semester is a better solution than remote teaching.

My school said students don’t need to come, but teachers and staff do. Wtf?

教育部表示,學生如因疫情考量請假,請各校「予以同意」,不列入出缺席計算,也不能因此扣分。

Well, according to the article posted above,

If the parents of elementary schools and kindergartens cannot take care of them at home for some reason, public and private elementary schools and kindergartens still provide students with basic care at school.

If teachers and staff aren’t there, who would provide the care?

As I look back what happedened after last Chinese new year, I sure hope this will not last long. My daughter simply went bored and lazy.

Kaohsiung Hospitality U is shut down, as is Wenzou U. Suddenly my house seems very crowded.

防疫照顧假是公假?還是家庭照顧假?

勞動局說明家庭照顧假,家中有12歲以下孩子或身心障礙的家長,可請家庭照顧假,呼籲雇主一定要給,依規定不給有罰則,2萬到30萬,因疫情從嚴考量提高裁罰額度,另外還有防疫照顧假 不給薪不計入考績。

I think it depends on each school and what agreement they reach with the parents.

What school will say we don’t want your money for two weeks?

They will just refund the ones that don’t go and go on business as usual.

They won’t refund they will say the school is open it’s your choice to not attend.

Again, it depends on the school. Not all put money above everything.
Some may be worried about exposing the staff and the children to risk, and recommend parents to not bring kids to school.
The one where my kids go did that last year. I haven’t been contact by them yet, but I’m confident they’ll do the same now.
