2. During the class suspension period, our school has thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. All the school premises have been sprayed Sanitizing Antimicrobial Coating. We have urged all staff members to step up precautionary measures to maintain personal hygiene and environmental hygiene of the school. Besides, we will also request all the staff who have contacts with our students to take their temperature before going to school. If they have fever, they must not return to school.

 

3. We will maintain the environmental hygiene of our school premises as far as we can to safeguard the health of our students. We hope that, after class resumption, students can return to the school and enjoy their learning in a safe environment. However, we are mindful of the rapidly changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, schools will keep in view the latest development, and parents should pay close attention to any latest announcements of our school as well as the EDB.

 

4. To avoid the danger of spreading the virus while eating, please arrange your children to take breakfast at home before going to school. The school does not allow students to take breakfast at school. School tuck shop is closed. Please remind your child to bring drinking water or drinking bottle to school. Students can refill their drinking bottle in the drinking fountains at school.

 

5. Cooperation from parents and students are important for us to maintain a clean and safe environment. We call on your support to step up environmental hygiene in the household, and, on top of that, implement the following measures strictly:

 

5.1 Pay attention to the health condition of your child. He/She should stay away from school and see a doctor immediately if symptom, especially fever, is detected.

 

5.2 Take your child’s temperature before he/ she goes to school every day. Fill in the record sheet (Proforma A) and sign your name on it. Your child should return the completed sheet to us daily. Please download and print

Proforma A for use, or your child can come back to school to get it according to the time set by class teacher.

 

5.3 To prevent infection, please ask your child to wear a mask (also applicable when taking transportation) and bring tissue paper and mask for replacement to school every day.

 

5.4 To keep teachers’ informed of the health condition of students, please complete Proforma B to provide us with the following information (Please download and print this form for use, or your child can come back to school to get it according to the time set by class teacher.):

 

(a) travel history of your child outside Hong Kong in the past 14 days;

(b) whether your child has confirmed infection of COVID-19;

(c) the health status of those taking care of your child, or those living with your

child;

(d) the current health status of your child.

 

Please return the Proforma on or before the first day of class resumption. For those who have contracted the virus and have recovered, if they are still within the 14-day quarantine period, they must not go to school.

 

5.5 After the resumption of classes, you are requested to notify our school at 2342 3198 immediately in case of any of the following situations, to facilitate our prompt action in taking contingency measures and informing the EDB:

 

(a) your child has been confirmed infection of COVID-19; or

(b) your child has been classified as “close contact of an infected person” with COVID-19*

 

6.  With concerted efforts contributed by different parties, we look forward to overcoming the adversities of the pandemic so that students, teachers and parents can resume normal living and healthy life.
