4.     Reminders on Safe Management Measures (SMMs) 

We would like to seek the continued support of parents/guardians in adhering to the following SMMs:

§  Students and staff who are unwell, or who have household members on Home Quarantine Order/Stay Home Notice or have adult household members (aged 18 and above) with flu-like symptoms such as fever and cough, are required to stay home on Approved Absence.

§  Daily temperature-taking will continue to be carried out for all students and staff.

-        Students should ensure that they bring a working Oral Digital Thermometer to school daily.

§  Students and staff are required to wear their masks.

-        We have noticed some students not wearing their masks properly (e.g. wearing it below the nose). We hope that parents/guardians can help to reinforce the importance of proper mask-wearing to your child/ward.

-        We also encourage all students to bring an extra mask daily, together with a resealable bag / mask holder that can be used to store their masks when they need to be removed (e.g. during recess)

 

5.     School Improvement Works

Please refer to Table 2 below. For all school improvement works, please be assured that the necessary safety precautions are taken to ensure the well-being of students and staff.

6.     Traffic Situation Outside School Gates During Arrival and Dismissal

We thank parents/guardians for your cooperation in helping to maintain safe traffic conditions in and around the school. Instances of indiscriminate parking near our front and back gates in the morning (during arrival) and in the afternoon (at dismissal) have reduced. We would like to continue to seek the support of parents/guardians to be considerate to nearby residents when parking or stopping your vehicle to fetch your child/ward to and from school. Please also be reminded that enforcement officers will be on duty within the vicinity of the school to monitor the situation and take action, if necessary.

 

Once again, we thank you for your support in your child/ward’s learning and development in our school.



Yours sincerely,

Mr Sam Wong

Principal
