Arrangement For Schools After CIRCUIT BREAKER (updated as 28 May 2020)

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

ARRANGEMENT FOR SCHOOLS AFTER CIRCUIT BREAKER

 

With the end of the Circuit Breaker period on 1 June 2020, we will progressively bring students back to school from 2 June 2020 (Term 3), in a careful and safe manner.

 

1.     Rotation of Levels from Term 3 Week 1 to Term 3 Week 4

For a start, P6 students will attend school daily from Mondays to Fridays. P1 to P5 students will rotate weekly between Home-Based Learning (HBL) and returning to school for lessons. Please refer to the table below for the weekly rotation schedule.

 *More information on HBL for the different levels will be provided next week. 

From Term 3 Week 5, we will work towards bringing all students back to school daily, if the situation permits. MOE will monitor the situation closely and we will inform all parents in due course.


 

2.     Safe Management Measures

 The school will ensure that safe management measures are in place to keep our students safe: 

§  Daily temperature-taking with additional visual and question screening will continue to be carried out for all students and staff. In addition, students and staff who are unwell, or who have adult household members on home quarantine / Stay Home Notice or have flu-like symptoms such as fever and cough, will be required to stay away from school.

§  The school will clean high-touch surfaces more frequently and disinfect the premises daily.

§  Students and staff are required to wear their masks or face shields.

§  Students will practise frequent hand-washing throughout the school day and practise wipe down of tables and shared equipment after use.

§  Intermingling across classes and levels will be minimised.

§  There will be fixed exam-style seating in classrooms and spaced seating in canteens or alternative venues.

§  The school will also stagger arrival, dismissal and recess timings as reflected below to reduce congestion.

3.     Physical Education (PE) Lessons, Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs), External Activities and After-School Programmes

To ensure that our students remain active and keep healthy, we will resume PE lessons when students return to school, with strict adherence to safe management measures. During PE lessons, students and PE teachers will not be required to wear masks when engaged in strenuous physical activities such as running and workouts. Given that students may not be sufficiently prepared physically, the National Physical Fitness Award (NAPFA) this year will be cancelled.

 

CCAs will remain suspended as the school explores ways to possibly conduct eCCAs. External activities and those that involve mingling of students across schools will remain suspended until further notice. The suspension also applies to all after-school programmes (with the exception of SDR, RRP, Higher Mother Tongue lessons and Foundation Mathematics lessons). The school will review the suspension of these programmes at a later date.

 

To support our graduating students, we will look towards resuming supplementary and remedial lessons for P6 in Term 3 Week 3, depending on the national posture. This decision will be confirmed at a later date and communicated to parents/guardians of P6 students.

 

 

4.     Resumption of School-based Student Care Centre Operations

School-based Student Care Centres will resume operations from 2 June 2020 for all levels of students in primary schools, with fixed groupings and required standards of hygiene. If you are unable to secure alternative care arrangements during HBL days and both parents have to return to work, please approach the school for assistance.

 

 

5.     Cancellation of National School Games for 2020

All National School Games competitions for 2020 will be cancelled, as there is insufficient time to complete the season within the school calendar. In addition, students would not be adequately prepared for the competitions due to lack of training.

 

 

6.     Continued Monitoring of COVID-19 Situation

Our teachers will continue to monitor the progress of your child/ward and be in regular contact with you and your child/ward to provide support during this transition. MOE will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation. We urge you to rely on official sources of information and not to circulate any unconfirmed information. If you have any further queries, please contact the school’s General Office at 6759 7433.

 

Thank you and keep safe!

  

Yours sincerely,
Mr Sam Wong

Principal
